At today's assembly, we talked about the Centennial art project, the mosaic. Mrs. Okano, Leah Rigg ’80, and Madame Caron played a crucial part in making this happen, along with all the students, faculty, and staff of Hanahau‘oli. This mosaic is based on two pieces of art: “The Hug” and “Starry Night.” It was amazing how all the different classes did unique pieces of artwork that will make up a whole. JK’s piece of artwork is round shapes, Kukunaokalā created portraits with rays of the sun, Kulāiwi got inspiration from our island home, Po‘e Ka‘ahele imprinted part of their ‘ohe kapala into the clay, and finally 6th Grade designed miniature stepping stones. Then Kamalei and Kaia talked about what they did on their miniature stepping stone and why. They even shared the process 6th Grade did to make the clay piece. In the end Mrs. Okano and Madame Caron showed what the mosaic will look like and how hard it will be to make. The piece will be completed when we come back from our spring break. How exciting it will be to see it finished!
We closed with our special Hanahau‘oli song.
