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 of 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. Each day, students rotate through classes that include basic principles of design, 3-dimensional hand-building, textile techniques, and self-expression.
YAS coincides with the Department of Education’s K-12 academic breaks throughout the year. New workshop day-camps are held each academic break to encourage continuing participation.
