About the book:

This book presents an integrated approach to the education of children that teaches them how to see and describe their world - both the natural world around them and their own culture and identity - through linking the media of art and language, considered as parallel creative-expressive processes of arting (representation in visual images) and writing (representation in words). The work presents conceptual background and practical materials developed in a collaboration by two Hawai'i elementary teachers, one with a doctorate in Education from the University of Hawai'i (Anna Sumida) and one an Education Design Specialist (Miki Maeshiro), and a well-known Hawaiian artist and educator (Meleanna Meyer).
