Summer Program begins on June 13 and continues to June 30.

Overview

The goal of art education at Millani Waena is to help children have a better understanding of art as a way of learning about themselves and the world around them. Art teaches children that problems can have more than one solution and that questions can have more than one answer. Art brings about the view of having multiple perspectives.

 

The Hawaii Content and Performance Standards in the area of Fine Arts will drive instruction as your child will be provided opportunities to create, express ideas, feelings and experiences through the arts.

 

Your child will have 3-6, 40 minute sessions per quarter
