LAHAINA — Just when art is leaving the classroom, Lahaina Arts Association (LAA) is stepping up the opportunities for the children of Maui to have a free art experience.

Lahaina Arts Association is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to supporting the children of Maui County through various art opportunities.

When its founding organization Lahaina Arts Society (LAS) is under the beautiful Banyan Tree in front of the Old Lahaina Courthouse, LAA is there too.

Children can find the Keiki Table this summer on June 5, 6, 19 and 20; July 10, 11 and 31; and Aug. 1, 20, 21 and 22. A free art project and face-painting will be offered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring the entire family!

The art fairs feature fine art created on Maui by some of LAS’ established and emerging artists at reasonable prices. Michael Kollwitz will entertain you with the unique sounds of his rare Chapman Stick.

In March, LAA partnered with Nancy Young, art teacher at Lahainaluna High School, to identify, interview and place qualified high school students to become art assistants at the Keiki Table.

Come on by and say hello to LAA’s newest employees: Tiana Malacus, Kalani Stephens and Sierra Stevens, who are supervised by LAA art teacher Mirjam Berman.

Look for the tent with the Lahaina Arts Association banner and discover a source of great joy for kids. They will have a super art experience and just plain fun. See you there!
