2020-2021 Offerings For Students
As an arts organization, the MACC is dedicated to offering students a wide variety of live artistic experiences from different disciplines to provide awareness and exposure to the arts. This year to support Hawaiʻi based artists we have selected those within our community that have an inspirational message and original music to share with our keiki. For the first time ever, we are creating an opportunity for students to enjoy a selection of Motivational Mele artists via virtual recordings that may be viewed in their classroom or at home from their personal computers. MACC’s Motivational Mele is absolutely free but registration is required.

CanDo! Days & CanDo! Comes to You
CanDo! Day (Grades 1-5) and CanDo! Day Comes to You (PreK-K)
For over 20 years, MACC’s CanDo! Day program has have been instrumental in providing hands-on art immersion lessons in dance, drama, music and visual arts. Beginning this winter, schools across Maui County will be able to sign-up for grade relevant lessons that cover the four disciplines. No matter what class schedules look like, we’ll make it easier for students to participate with pre-recorded personalized CanDo! Day lessons. Pre-recorded lessons will be available for your students from January through May.

The MACC's residency program provides students with the opportunity to work with master artists to both deepen their understanding and as an effective tool to foster interest for the arts and its relation to the world around them. This year, virtual residencies are being offered that focus on the MACC’s first year of official partnership with the National Youth Poet Laureate Program. Spoken Word continues to be an expressive form of art amongst our youth that allows them to explore poetry, both in written or recited forms.

Cross Currents Summer Program
The Cross Currents Program was created to engage middle and high school youth in hands-on arts experiences. The program was conceived to provide students with access to master teaching artists working a wide-ranging array of artistic practices from both the Native Hawaiian and contemporary lenses to encourage cross disciplinary arts integration and healthy self-expression. In the past, the program focused on music, dance, storytelling and spoken word poetry. The Cross Currents Summer program is being revamped to best meet the needs of students. Please check back in the Spring of 2021 for more info.
