NEW!  CROSS CURRENTS for adults!  June 13-29, 2017

Join the MACC’s arts education department in an artistic journey and let loose your creative side! 

Due to popular demand, the summer performing arts program, “CROSS CURRENTS”, hosted by Maui Arts & Cultural Center for secondary students, will now be available to adults and seniors! 
The goal of this performance art program is to deepen understanding of traditional and contemporary art forms, to allow all of our audiences to experience the arts beyond being spectators, and to enrich the lives of our community members with performance art.

Timing of the program has been adjusted to accommodate working adults and seniors: the 3-week program will be held at the MACC on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:30-9:00pm, June 13 through June 29. 
The first week of the program will be an exploration of three traditional performance cultures: hula (dance), mele (music), and mo’olelo (storytelling).  The second week will explore contemporary performance art: modern dance, American music, and spoken word /poetry.  The third week will culminate in a mixed-media, mixed-artform ho’ike (showcase)
The program cost is $100 for adults,  $75 for seniors (age 60+) for the three-week program. Instructional materials are included.

For more than 20 years, primary students from all over Maui County's school district have been participating in these hands-on art-immersion lessons in dance, drama, and visual arts. Seeing a need for their students, elementary schools across Maui bring their students to the MACC for this unique art instruction opportunity. We are excited to serve an entirely new generation on Maui!  Scheduling for this school year is complete. Schedules and registration for the upcoming school year 2017 - 2018 will be available by August 31, 2017. 


"The strength of this program is the way they integrate the arts with science. I love how the students get the chance to collaborate and have discussions for a deeper understanding of what they are learning."- 5th grade teacher, Wailuku Elementary


"It is fascinating to see how much the students grasp from just one day of arts instructions. When the team from MACC comes for Can Do! Day the repetition of activities for the last three years or so has some significant impacts on their academic lives." - 4th grade teacher, Kaunakakai Elementary


As a presenter of arts and culture, the Maui Arts & Cultural Center offers an array of performances and events that are specifically geared towards educating as well as enriching the minds and hearts of Maui's students.  Whether it is listening to a symphony orchestra, or learning the science behind gravity-defying circus acts, our educational performances aim to "edu-tain" our young audiences!
