Yes, we have a train that travels Ka‘anapali to Lahaina. Currently the train is in storage awaiting a new owner’s plan for maintenance and a new type of service. It is primarily a tourist train experience. Hui Lai found the sweet train tucked away in a service building while here. We’re so appreciative of her ‘documenting’ our famous local train.

Workshop Overview:

There are many ways to approach painting in the open air. What you choose to paint and how you paint involves many challenging decisions to make within a limited working time frame. In this three day workshop, Hiu Lai will demonstrate her approach to painting, from the initial thought process through the painting’s development.

There will be a short lecture and demo each morning followed by painting on location. She will discuss tips and techniques for design, composition, edges, color, shape and values, and how she uses visual elements to communicate ideas and feeling in the work. The class will also explore a nocturne session if weather permits. She will discuss her tools and tips for painting at night, what to avoid and what can help during the process.

Maui Arts League is excited to offer two plein air painting workshops in conjunction with the February, 2018 Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational. Both professional artists excel at ‘teaching.’  It is one thing to be a great artist, and yet another to be a superior instructor. Our workshop teachers are selected from the group of MPAPI professional ‘visiting artists’. Leon Holmes from Australia and Morgan Samuel Price from Florida will share their painting knowledge and techniques with  workshop attendees. You won’t want to miss out.
