what we do

Arts Education

Foundation Classes: High-quality foundation art classes with sequential-based instruction give students the framework for developing skills in painting, drawing, jewelry & metalsmithing, printmaking, photography, digital media, ceramics, glassblowing, and more! The Hui offers over 300 art classes each year to students of all levels and of ages 2.5 through adult! 

Open Studios

The Hui’s Open Studio Program provides students and community artists the opportunity to work independently with access to professional artist studios, equipment, and tools. Hui Open Studios offer a shared community space for students to work on class projects and for Hui members to continue to explore their artistry. The Hui offers open studios in ceramics, jewelry, printmaking & photography! 


With up to eight community exhibitions each year, emerging and established artists are offered a diverse range of opportunities to show their work in a professional gallery space. With themed, juried, and solo artist exhibitions, the Hui’s exhibitions program advances careers and defines our local arts movement. 

Historic Preservation

As the site of an early Maui sugar mill and a historic home built in 1917, the Hui’s Kaluanui Estate reflects some of the unique features of Upcountry Maui from a century or more ago. We invite you to visit us at the Hui and experience Kaluanui through a guided or self-guided tour. 


The Hui’s Visiting Artist Program enriches Maui’s visual arts community by offering hands-on workshops and presentations by locally, nationally, and internationally recognized visual artists who share new techniques and help us to create a global arts community!


The Hui offers “Explore & Discover” field trips for youth and works with community partners to bring arts into schools and the community! Our “Teach the Teachers” program offers professional development workshops to school teachers who share their knowledge with future generations of creative thinkers. Please contact us (808) 572-6560 to find out more!


The Hui offers a range of events, including elegant galas, art auctions, fashion shows, salon discussions, exhibition tours with artists and curators, hands-on workshops, preview sales, music, dancing, and more. These events promise a festive occasion to congregate, communicate and celebrate. Annual highlights include Art Affair, Family Day: A Community Celebration of the Arts, the Wailea Food & Wine Celebration, and Hui Holidays. Additionally, we host weddings and other special events through private rentals and community partnerships.
