2018 Mele Murals Summer Program

In the Mele Mural Summer Program, participants will strengthen a sense of belonging, connecting them to our island through traditional Hawaiian art making practices, and modern muralism.  Your child will learn about navigation, the ahupua’a system, cultivation, Hawaiian games, mindfulness, chants, and will express their mana’o through art as the next generation of visual storytellers. There will be lots of outdoor games and activities as well!

Weekly schedules are themed to feature unique activities including field trips to Ho‘oulu Aina, Ka Papa Lo‘i o Kanewai, and other Hawaiian cultural learning sites.  The highlight of our summer program will be the creation of outdoor murals.  Mural design will focus on Hawaiian lyrics (mele) that explore mo’olelo’ aina (stories of place) and cultural and historical heritage.  All activities are weather permitting and subject to change without prior notice. Supplies and cost of field trips included.  All students must bring their own lunch and snacks.  We ask that children wear clothing they don’t mind getting messy and footwear is required.

Program packets will be distributed after online registration. Weekly schedule will be available after April 15th. For more information please email info@estria.org or call (808) 638-4005.
