The Week in Kids

Yes, we’re ankle deep in Art Affair preparations (our biggest fundraiser of the year), the Hui No‘eau Annual Juried Exhibition (our most competitive show of the year), and the launch of 64 spring classes & visiting artist workshops- but we’re always hungry for more! This week we are pleased to host 2 Seabury Hall Winterim groups in hands-on, experiential learning opportunities designed to expand students’ understanding, appreciation, and support of each other and the local and global community. Mahalo to teaching artists Luana Coonen, Nathalie Nunez, Erica Franz and Barbara Liniger for your spirited and vigorous work during these 8 intensive workshops and to Seabury teachers Harriet Huff & Gayle Martelles for your prized support.

A big mahalo to Lissa Fox Strohecker, Education Specialist at Maui Invasive Species Committee, for dropping some knowledge at the Hui this week during a Stickwork-inspired field trip with Big Island’s Hawa’i Preparatory Academy! Also, to Hui teaching artist Erica Franz for her imaginative vision in leading the group through a 2-hour found object basket weaving workshop. We love the fact that teens are flying in from other islands to check out this amazing sculpture and learn more about what it means for our ‘aina!

And finally, mahalo to Katie Lutz and Sue Hudelson for your sequential-based classes with our Maui youth this session. Each of you are making a profound impact on the lives of these children, their families and the future of our community. Plus…it’s pretty awesome having all of these rad kids around all the time!
