Ka ulana ‘ana i ka piko (In Weaving You Begin at the Center):Perspectives from a Culturally Specific Approach to Art Education

sp13cover_245 IMG_4247This collaboratively authored article highlights the unique kinds of learning that emerge from a culturally relevant art practice.  I had the great honor of working with several Hawaiian scholars to co-author this piece which was published in the Harvard Educational Review in their recent special issue on Art Education.  This piece is particularly meaningful to me since it gave me a chance to acknowledge how much I have learned from my kumu as I’ve practiced weaving lauhala papale myself (note the image of my first papale here!).
