Explore & Discover: A Class Field Trip Collaboration Between Hui No`eau & The Maui Invasive Species Committee (MISC)

Dates & Times Scheduled on a First-Come-First-Served Basis
The Stickwork sculpture is more than a beautiful work of art- it represents a well thought-out process of preserving our native Hawaiian forests and making a difference as a team. Bring your class to the Hui to join Hui teaching artists and MISC educators as we use the visual arts as a means of understanding the importance of protecting our natural island resources. Choose from projects like Form Changing Flip Books (to take home with you at the end of class), that illustrate the rate of introduction of different plants and insects to our Hawaiian islands or contribute to the Hui Ho`ololi Mural (to remain on Hui grounds), which illustrates the different tree species used in Dougherty’s sculpture, as well as colorful components of the country’s culture from which they derive.
Base Fee: $10 per student (Depends on number of students and project decided upon) / 10-student minimum.
