The Center for Community Engagement (CCE) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo offers keiki art classes with Kellie Miyazu for ages 8-12.

In Art for Keiki: Upcycle Mask Making, students will learn to create masks using common recycled items as well as basic art supplies. Students will begin by designing a concept for their creation, followed by learning to construct their two-dimensional sketch into three-dimensional form. This one-day make-and-take workshop will be held on Monday, January 21, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. in UH Hilo’s PB-5 classroom. Cost is $45.

In Art for Keiki: Colored Pencils, students will learn basic colored pencil techniques, including beginner-level shading and blending. The classes will also include mixed media applications such as the use of pencils on various surfaces, and the inclusion of water and other fluid mediums to create various finishes and effects. The series will culminate in a final project composition of their own design. Classes will be held on Wednesdays, January 23 to March 13, from 4:30-6 pm in UH Hilo’s PB-5 classroom. Cost is $100.
