| Hawaii Art Tip - Learn Like a Teacher - |
Yes, when you are undergoing a learning experience, prepare your mind to teach what you're learning to someone. Whoa Patrick, I'm just learning this stuff and you're expecting me to teach it to someone?
That's right. If you learn something and you know you are going to teach it to someone soon, you will go about learning it in a really great way.
For example, when I teach a class how to draw a Sea Turtles I ask them to go out and teach it to someone right away. This not only helps to refresh the lesson, but also to lock it in to your memory banks where it can live for your whole life. So again, one of the best bits of advice I can offer you is to Learn Like a Teacher.

| Hawksbill Honu ‘Ea NEW RELEASE|
Ref. No.: 32498 ** Price: $3000 ** Limited Edition: Yes ** Inspiration: The ‘Ea is the name of the Hawaiian Hawksbill Sea Turtle. It is sometimes called Honu ‘Ea although Honu is actually the name of the more abundant Green Sea turtle. The ‘Ea is a rare species with a bill shaped like a hawk’s beak that it uses for foraging. Its main food source are sponges which are actually animals as compared to Algae (plants) that are the main food source of the Honu. The meat of the ‘ea was said to be toxic due to its diet of sponges. The Shell of the ‘Ea has more pointed edges and scute sections than other turtles and was highly prized in old Hawaii for making tools and decorative ornaments. As it gets older, the points of its shell become smoother resembling other species of sea turtle. One main difference in the facial plates of the ‘Ea is that there are four plates between its eyes as compared to just two plates on the Honu. More...

| CLASS - Kathryn K. Yamamoto, Ph.D., CRC - |
Aloha Patrick! I wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation! Thank you so much for the opportunity to take your "Nature Painting" workshop on July 7, 2018! I appreciate your teaching style... a blend of kindness, compassion, insight, and skill. You teach your students to not only learn the mechanics of painting but more so, to remind us of our child eyes... to see beyond what our adult eyes see... colors, shapes, texture...
For me, this included feeling the sun on my face in your studio... the wind from the ocean as we stepped outside to listen to the waves... Bringing these senses to the painting activity, I was transported to when I took the picture of the Kalaupapa scene... In a nutshell, I learned that in order to paint, one must use all of our senses.. all of ourselves..
With gratitude, -kat
