Nostalgia Hawaii

Pohl's Legacy Continues Louis loved sharing art from the time he was a teenager at the Cincinnati Art Museum School with his fellow art students and later as a professional artist. He taught drawing and painting. He felt the most creative when he shared what he knew and helping students see as an artist. He liked teaching young children as well as adults in his studio or at the Honolulu Art Academy. He said everyone is creative, everyone is an artist.

Whenever Pohl taught and shared his experiences of art, he felt more and more creative. The teaching help him in his own creativity as the more he taught, the more work he produced his own art. He also felt that he contributed to his students discovering themselves and made the world just a little better one person at a time.

My friend, Vernon Rieta sort of reminds me of Louis. Vernon took art painting and drawing classes from Louis Pohl at the Honolulu Art Academy as a teenager many many years ago. He is now teaching art classes with the City and County of Honolulu's Art Program. He shares his skills and enthusiasm for art.

Louis would be happy and proud to meet the artists. The art showcases the depth of his influence as his art lives on through his students and their students.
