A few of our Biki’s recently posed for an art class! 5-7th graders from all over Oahu participated in a 12 week painting and drawing class, at the Honolulu Museum of Art. The artwork was displayed at the Fall 2018 Young Artist Exhibition in December.
Instructor Lauren Okana and the Director of Children's Classes, Pearlyn Salvador, reached out to us requesting to borrow two Biki's for two Saturday sessions. We were amazed by the finished product and blown away by the talent of these young artists. Check them out!
"I love my Saturday art classes because these kids are so motivated to learn art & I have been teaching art classes at the Honolulu Museum of Art for over 20 years. This semester I took the kids to the museum to see the new King Kalakaua show and they drew at the museum and painted for the last few weeks during class. The theme is "Old Hawaii" & New Hawaii and the Biki bike project represents "New Hawaii"
We used large paper and drew the bikes with charcoal pencils several different perspectives. I also had the students use a viewfinder and look at a section of the drawing to create a painting with their view."
