Visualizing Green & Camp Kaluanui

August 31, 2011August initiated a new creative challenge to our Hui community, the themed exhibition “Visualizing Green” presented 33 works selected by juror Stephen Freedman, a sculptor from the Big Island and former Hui teaching artist. Whether inspired by nature, the environmental movement, the emotions this color provokes, or any other inspiration, artists were encouraged to develop and express an authentic vision of what “green” means to them. August also marked the end of a nearly sold-out Camp Kaluanui program for youth aged 5 – 12. 9 weekly sessions were provided to residents of & visitors to our Maui community, with a record-breaking 222 creative keiki participating in multi-media arts adventures throughout the Hui’s professionally-equipped artist studios (with 10% receiving financial aid) on projects themed The Time Traveler’s Palette Knife: Art History 101, The Road to Hana: Botanical Improvisation & Fantastical Fauna, Raiders of the Lost Artifact: Extraordinary Art Expeditions, and more. “The children always come home with fabulous artwork,” remarked a camp parent, “The creativity of your instructors and coordinators are to be applauded. I know that the children will be safe with your staff. Congratulations on continuing to have such a successful program!”
