Programs & Events
East Hawai’i Cultural Center’s Youth Arts Series (YAS) is an exciting immersion experience for young artists. Students have the opportunity to explore a variety of engaging and innovative art-making processes. We strive to enrich the artistic abilities our students in a fun, nurturing environment that stimulates their artistic talents.
YAS offers students a wide range of mediums that provide a variety of creative outlets to stimulate their imaginations and to promote their ability to think outside the box.
DID YOU KNOW?
The blues are a historically African-American song form. They are a blend of ballads and field hollers. Hollers were the work songs of the slaves when they picked crops on the southern plantations. These rural roots make it difficult to document the exact origin of the blues, but it also makes sense that the music became so personal. Interviews with surviving musicians tell of them hearing blues sung throughout the South in the early 1900s.
At EHCC we provide a platform for cultural expression. In addition to the visual and performing arts, we offer educational programming and social events from cultures all around the world.
We are excited to partner with Japanese Tea Ceremony master, Phillipe Nault, and Tea Hawaii, both of whom will bring their invaluable expertise in the world of tea to EHCC as we introduce our latest program titled Tea Ceremony.
