NEW!  CROSS CURRENTS June 12-30, 2017


Hawai'i is a colorful, sometimes conflicting, milieu of arts and culture. Many cultural practitioners and modern artists get pigeon-holed into their respective art forms resulting in artists and practitioners that tend to shy away from experimenting with or developing new expressions, which in turn, generate polarizations in artistic fields and insular attitudes.

Through this three-week summer program, the Maui Arts & Cultural Center hopes to create a vehicle to help the next generation to comfortably  straddle both worlds of traditional and contemporary culture and arts, making their expressions seamless, fluid, and informed.

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!
