Get ArtisticMaui

Maui, with its spanning green landscapes, crystalline waters and stunning sunsets, presents the perfect backdrop for artistic expression. In fact, with so many NATURAL AND MAN-MADE WONDERS so readily at hand, it’s hard not to feel inspired.

Those looking to channel their inner creativity can hone their talents with a class led by local contemporary artist ANNA SEVERSON. Severson, who once worked as an art director for YSL’s in-house ad agency and has designed for celebrities such as Tommy Hilfiger, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, leads LIFE DRAWING SESSIONS at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday at MAGENTA BOULEVARD, located next to Body in Balance in the Emerald Plaza, 142 Kupuohi St. in LAHAINA. No experience is necessary, though students are asked to bring their own supplies (charcoal pencils and a large-format newsprint sketch pad). NUDE MODELS may be present, so leave the keiki at the hotel. However, ongoing CHILDREN’S ARTS AND CRAFTS CLASSES and art classes for moms and kids are available on other days of the week, as well.
