NEW PRINT ALERT 🚨 : "Floral Arrangement" is now available on aaronkai.com (link in bio) 🌊
I had the pleasure to speak to the art classes from my old Elementary & Middle School yesterday. It was so cool to go back and see my old art teachers and counselors, I'm so impressed by this next generation of kids! I think their favorite thing was hearing about my partnership with Taco Bell, The Hundreds collab, and my sneakers. First I started with the 7th grade art class, I spoke about my life after school at Kamehameha, then I taught them how to draw some waves. Then I spoke to the 7th grade media team about the importance of properly documenting your work, I showed them examples of videos my friends have done for me in the past. Lunch time came around and we sat down & had lunch with the 5th graders (they were hilarious). Finally we talked to two 5th grade art classes about the importance of a voice / identity in anything you do. All in all I think I learned more than they did lol, and I was so impressed and can't wait to speak with the high school on Friday. 🤙🏾 (sorry if anybody got cut off in the pics)
Headed back home to Hilo, Hawaii tomorrow. This is kind of the vibe I'm going for. 🌊🌴 A little fun fact: The Big Island (Hawaii) is actually growing as we "speak", no joke! Lava is flowing into the ocean and creating more land. I'm proud to say that I'm from the newest place on Earth! 🌋🏝
I had the pleasure of speaking at my old High School: Kamehameha Schools Hawaii Campus. There are some amazing kids at this school with some real talent, I can't wait to see what the next generation of young artists has in store for us! Here's a flick with some of my past teachers and counselors. Peep their tees, who remembers my brand @lemonhi
Back on deck! @goodlifemelrose have been keeping me smoked up. 👌
