For the past few months, educators from the Honolulu Museum of Art have been collaborating with educators from the Department of Education and Hanahau‘oli School to create a series of visual art education posters that will be distributed to every DOE school classroom on O‘ahu.

We’re happy to report that we have completed two posters and hopefully you have received your copies. The first poster highlights Juliette May Fraser’s painting Lei Sellers. The second poster features Hubert Vos’ Study of Hawaiian Fish.

These posters can be used as a tool to help students hone their visual thinking skills, which can translate to literacy skills and also be applied to any subject that requires thorough observation and an ability to describe what you see. Background information about the artist, historical context, as well as additional resources can be found on the back of the poster.

Learn more about the classroom poster project, and find links to the posters and additional resources on our website.
