Lo­cal Kids Col­or­ing Up For Dis­ney

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER / DECEMBER 1, 2010 / -

Go­ing into a rain­bow of col­ors at Dis­ney’s Au­lani Re­sort will be a col­lage of 138 dig­i­tal pho­tos from Hawaii chil­dren, in­clud­ing im­ages from East Oahu’s young pho­tog­ra­phers.

Stu­dents were asked to sub­mit im­ages show­ing the beauty of Hawaii from their per­sonal per­spec­tive, us­ing a sin­gle color in the rain­bow spec­trum. The se­lected pho­tos will be com­piled into a vi­brant col­lage and be promi­nently dis­played at the West Oahu re­sort when phase one opens next sum­mer.

Re­ceiv­ing $100 gift cards for their art­work were area stu­dents Eli­jah Chu of Kaimuki Mid­dle School and Kainalu Spear of Unity School.

The project is a part­ner­ship be­tween the re­sort, Hawaii Arts Al­liance and the state’s Cre­ative In­dus­tries Di­vi­sion (film of­fice).

“We ap­plaud Dis­ney and the Au­lani team for their ded­i­ca­tion to fea­tur­ing lo­cal artists at their new re­sort and are thrilled to be in­volved in help­ing them show­case the tal­ents of Hawaii’s stu­dents in this cre­ative and last­ing way,” said Ge­orja Skin­ner, CID ad­min­is­tra­tor.

Eli­jah Chu, a stu­dent at Kaimuki Mid­dle School, took this shot along the Koko Head trail. The photo will be­come part of a dig­i­tal rain­bow col­lage by is­land youths at the Dis­ney Au­lani Re­sort when it opens its first phase next sum­mer in Ko Olina.
