Hawai’i Craftsmen’s Raku Ho’olaule’a, founded in 1977, is an annual outdoor community ceramics festival that promotes and teaches Raku pottery traditions that date back to16th century Japan. The Plein Air Painters of Oʻahu is a casual group of painters who meet regularly to paint “in the open air” at various sites around the island — including at past Raku Ho’olaule’a festivals — to share inspiration, friendship and aloha.
