In this chapter, the author, a lifelong artist and arts educator, reflects on how she draws from her foundation, worldview, and experience to give sequence and form to education that inspires Hawaiian in the arts, and art in the Hawaiian. Hawaiian art is almost as broad as the field of art itself, and the range of artists is certainly as diverse, if not as numerous. Hawaiian artists who are educators make up an even smaller, formative group, as there is no established Hawaiian art curriculum in most educational settings. According to the author, transmitting knowledge in the visual arts is an exchange of energy that takes place in a selected framework. She distills it to a sequence involving five steps, which she uses as guides every time she approaches a new class or group where she is formally leading the act of learning, and to load her mental and pedagogical toolkit: intention, frontloading, essential questions, process, and hōʻike or demonstration.

Keywords:   education, Hawaiian art, Hawaiian artists, visual arts, intention, frontloading, essential questions, process, hōʻike, demonstration
