As an artist, Audrey Baldwin praises the fun and light-hearted approach to art that Dr Sketchy's allows.

The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag]

BY PETER EXLEY
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 01, 2015

“Research has illustrated that 90% of us will do almost all of the drawings we will make in our lifetime before the age of 10. That’s the threshold we pass when someone tells us that we aren't good at art or math or science.”

In The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag] from PechaKucha Night Batavia’s first volume, Speaker Peter Exley discusses the importance of thoughtful and deliberate sketches. We all spent time in our youth expressing ourselves through drawing. At some point, many of us turned our attentions to things less creative. Peter did not. Here’s why.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, February 16th, 2016.

Art History at HoMA School

BY GARY LIU
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 17, 2017

Gary Liu is a lecturer in the Department of Art and Art History at UH Manoa, and an instructor of art history at the Honolulu Museum of Art School.

You all know about the wide array of expressive art practices taught in the studios at HoMA School, but perhaps it comes as news that the school has also been recently expanding its world of art history offerings too, something a class at an art museum is uniquely equipped to do. Using the example of Chinese ink paintings recently discussed in such classes, this presentation offers a glimpse into the insight gained through HoMA School’s art history lectures, discussions, gallery and vault visits, and film screenings.
