ART CLASSES FOR KIDS
Motivated by a personal desire to introduce children to art elements, mediums, techniques, and history, I started teaching art to children in Hawaii over fifteen years ago. Today, with the demand of project based education and a decline of art in school, I continue to provide art classes for children in the Waipio EPIC Foundation art room right across from Hopaco and around the corner from Costco. Check out my upcoming courses below!
