Piece from last year’s annual art event: Day 21: (Laka) by Aria Chang

With the month of October growing closer and closer, the Art Club here at KS prepares for its annual October event: Pāheona ʻOkakopa. Meaning “art October,” Pāheona ʻOkakopa is a yearly tradition here on campus for our art students from all grades to come together and create thematic art all month long.

The concept of Pāheona ʻOkakopa comes from “Inktober,” which motivates and challenges artists all around the globe to create pieces inspired by a series of prompts every October. This pop culture event has been around since the year 2009, created by artist Jake Parker. Parker wanted to challenge himself to spend the month of October creating a piece every day using only ink, however, Inktober has evolved over these past fourteen years into something bigger that includes every medium you can imagine. A few years ago, our art students participated in “Alohoctober” with Kumu Boz, an art teacher here on campus. However, they have since diverged into creating Pāheona ʻOkakopa and self-directing their annual creative challenge.

About the Contributor
Mahina Tahere, Reporter
Aloha! ʻO Mahina Tahere koʻu inoa. I am a seventeen-year-old aspiring author and love anything involving the arts. I spend most of my free time painting, reading, writing, or listening to music. Art is my passion, especially writing, and I am super excited to be on the team! I would like to write biographies in the future, but not for famous people. I want to tell the stories of random people because there are so many people with so many interesting stories that no one is telling. During my free periods, you can almost definitely find me painting in the art studio or studying in the library. I love reading action-packed fantasy and science-fiction books (especially when they include some sort of political intrigue). I am from Lāʻie and currently living in Kailua with my mom, stepdad, and two younger brothers. I have one older sister, four younger sisters, and a nephew still living up in Lāʻie with my father. I spend my weekends and afternoons working at a shave ice place (gotta love Island Snow) and hanging out with my boyfriend. I seem to be incapable of existing without music blasting in my ears, so Halsey, Taylor Swift, Paramore, Good Charlotte, Mayday Parade, and Gracie Abrams are a few staples in my life. Some of my other hobbies include swordplay, throwing knives/axes, and decorating everything with beads because I think it is fun. I love mountain air, thunderstorms, and late-night walks on starry nights. I am so excited to join the team and cannot wait to embarrass myself with the amount of effort I throw at a high school newspaper!
