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 combined with contemporary mural painting.
The highlight of our summer program will be the creation of outdoor murals. Mural designs will focus on Hawaiian lyrics (mele) that explore mo‘olelo ‘āina (stories of place) and cultural and historical heritage.
All outdoor activities are weather permitting and subject to change without prior notice. All art supplies and cost of 2-3 field trips to Hawaiian cultural learning sites will be included.
Our 5 week program includes 2 meals per day (breakfast & lunch), transportation from Jarrett Middle School (if needed), all art supplies, mural supplies, excursion fees and transportation. We ask that children wear clothing they don’t mind getting messy. Footwear is required.
A preference is provided to Native Hawaiians youth and students needing financial support, especially from the Palolo, Kaimuki, Kapahulu, and McCully districts.
Program packet and weekly schedule will be distributed during mandatory orientation. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 808-638-4005.
