The Molokai Arts Center (MAC) returned to Halawa Valley for an afternoon of watercolors and fresh smoothies inspired by Molokai’s natural bounty. Students came to learn Landscape/Floral Watercolor Painting  on Saturday, August 3, 2019.

 Local artist Kalani Pruet, who prefers on-location nature observation and color mixing, will taught a 3-hour class right in his backyard at Halawa Tropical Flower Farm. The class will began with home made smoothies with fruits grown on the property and made by the instructor, Kalani before he demonstrated a painting demonstration. Kalani will shared some fundamental watercolor techniques such as landscape sketching, silhouette and outline drawing, watercolor tiling and blending and layering methods.  

 Kalani Pruet received a BA in Art at UH Mānoa, is a past member of the Lahaina Art Society and Oahu Watercolor Society, and a current member of the Molokai Arts Center. He is a watercolor enthusiast specializing in Landscape painting and a full time resident of Halawa Valley. He spends much of his time maintaining Halawa Tropical Flower Farm, harvesting and selling tropical flowers, bananas, and roots and more.
