Hui No‘eau to Host Teacher’s Professional Development Workshop
By Maui Now Staff
The Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center will host a Teacher’s Professional Development Workshop with Visiting Artist Yvonne Manipon on Thursday, July 9, from 9 a.m. to noon.
In this workshop, classroom teachers will explore the elements and principles of art through hands-on painting and drawing activities.
The class will focus on useful concepts to incorporate into teaching color theory, patterns in nature, line and shape.
The lessons can be applied to Common Core English Language Arts and Science standards for grades K through 12.
Born in Southern California and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Yvonne Manipon completed her master’s degree in arts administration at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned her bachelor of arts degree at the University of Oregon, where she majored in fine and applied arts, and art history.
Manipon lives and works in Honolulu as a teaching artist for the Honolulu Museum Art School and as a Museum Guide for the Art Bento program at Hawai‘i State Art Museum.
Before returning to Hawai‘i, Manipon was the executive director for the Materials Exchange Center for Community Arts, taught art classes for the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, and served as a docent leading tours at the UO Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
She is thrilled to be back in the islands, where she finds her inspiration in the landscape, investigating the beauty and unique quality of light found here.
This workshop was made possible through the generosity of community donors who “Raised the Paddle” at the Art Affair 2015 fundraising gala in February in support of visiting artists and the hui’s “Teach the Teacher” Program at the annual fundraising gala.
The workshop fee is $10. Pre-registration is required. Register online or call (808) 572-6560.
