Cre­ative Art Ex­plod­ing At Kaimuki Ex­plo­rium

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - FRONT PAGE -

Kaimuki’s cre­ative keiki core —the Art Ex­plo­rium — will mark its first an­niver­sary from 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 15 with a film and still more cre­ative ac­tiv­i­ties for area young­sters.

The pro­gram of­fi­cially kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with the short film Caine’s Ar­cade, an in­spi­ra­tional movie about a boy who spends his sum­mer build­ing an elab­o­rate ar­cade in his fa­ther’s used auto parts store. Fol­low­ing the screen­ing, chil­dren can build their own ar­cade games out of card­board and other ma­te­ri­als.

“We are so thank­ful,” said ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Heather Wil­liams, “for all the com­mu­nity sup­port we’ve re­ceived over the past year in de­vel­op­ing a fun, safe space for chil­dren to dis­cover their cre­ative po­ten­tial.”

Art Ex­plo­rium of­fers work­shops for a fee to stu­dents age 5 and older, sup­ported by pri­mar­ily reused items, such as corks, but­tons and bot­tle caps, as source ma­te­ri­als. This month’s classes, for ex­am­ple, cover dance paint­ing, clay, Thanks­giv­ing dec­o­ra­tions and Ja­panese enam­el­ing.

The stu­dio also is ac­tive in Kaimuki Third Fri­days (in­clud­ing Nov. 15) and hosts birth­day par­ties, dropin art adventures and more at 1142 Koko Head Ave. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 312-4316.

Holy Na­tiv­ity School capped off a year­long $100,000 fund drive and de­sign project with a bless­ing Oct. 19 of its new eco-friendly play­ground, cre­ated by Leathers & As­so­ci­ates from stu­dent draw­ings and put to­gether by hand by adult vol­un­teers.
