Art Explorium - November Updates - We are Celebrating Our First Year!
Below is recent news from Art Explorium
What a Year!
It's hard to believe that we quietly opened our Kaimuki doors for our first Open Studio session on November 26, 2012. This past year has flown by! In that time we have:
• Increased our Open Studio sessions to 8 per week
• Held in-studio field trips for preschool through middle school students from across O`ahu
• Offered art workshops on topics such as dancing, painting, making natural dyes, holiday celebrations, treehouse-building and lots more
• Celebrated many joyous and art-filled birthday parties
• Participated in a number of community events such as Honolulu Museum of Art's
ArtSpree, Kaimuki Third Fridays, a Surfrider Foundation beach clean-up, Discover Kakaako, and more!
We have accomplished all this through the support of our wonderful community and we want to take this opportunity to send you a great big MAHALO. Thank you for supporting our mission to provide a community art studio to nurture the creative potential in children.
In honor of our one-year anniversary we are offering some fun and creative upcoming events throughout November! Please take a look below - we hope you will participate in one or more of them.
Also, in honor of having been open one year, we are offering FREE Open Studio time on Tuesday, November 26 from 2-5 pm! Come by and get creative without paying the regular $5 Open Studio fee.
NEW: Little Artists Workshops
We are excited to start some weekday morning workshops for Little Artists who are either home-schooled or not in school yet (or who happen to have the day off!). This Friday, November 8 from 10 am to 12 pm we will offer Dance Painting, a very popular class that incorporates movement, music and paint. All ages welcome, $15, pre-registration required.
A Special Third Friday at Art Explorium!
Art Explorium opens its doors on the third Friday of each month from 6-9 pm as part of Third Fridays Kaimuki, a celebration of our Kaimuki neighborhood. This Third Friday, November 15, we will screen the short film Caine's Arcade at 6:30 pm. This inspirational movie shares the story of 9-year-old Caine Monroy, a boy who spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY arcade in his dad's used auto parts store. After the movie screening, there will be lots of cardboard and other supplies on-hand for children to make their own arcade games and other fantastic creations. The public is invited to drop by the studio that evening between 6-9 pm for some creative fun. The regular $5 Open Studio rate applies and all ages are welcome.
So Many Fun Workshops ...
Continuing through December, we are offering some extra (and extra fun!) workshops. Our November workshops are filling up fast but these still have spaces available:
• Dance Painting, Friday, November 8, 10am-12pm, all ages, $15
• Thanksgiving Decorations, Sunday, November 17, 1-2:30 pm, all ages, $15

This month we are taking our keiki art activities on the road to the Diamond Head Food Court, a food truck lot on Monsarrat Avenue. Bring the family down for creative fun while you get some ono grinds from food trucks like Thai Spice Shack, Naughty Bits and Watcha Fillin'. We will be at 3212 Monsarrat Avenue on Saturday, November 9 from 11 am to 1 pm. Look for the food trucks parked next to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's Diamond Head location. Free but donations are appreciated.

Nurturing tomorrow's creative thinkers
Art Explorium provides a fun, safe place where children of all ages have the opportunity and the permission to create freely. We firmly believe that art experiences are an important part of every person's growth and development. So... WE provide the space and materials, YOU provide the ideas and make them happen!
Art Explorium strives to be an eco-friendly organization. Many of the art materials in our studio are items that would normally be thrown in the landfill (old pieces of fabric, used bottle caps, small boxes, magazines, ribbon, etc.). We collect these used materials from our friends and local businesses, and Art Explorium visitors give these items a new life as art.
We offer art classes, birthday parties, and field trips to our studio. We also offer Open Studio time - come on in with your family and dabble in one or all of our art stations which offer activities like painting, sculpting, drawing, making mosaics and more. See you there!
Come on by! During Open Studio time you are free to drop in, use our space and materials and explore the process of creating.
We also offer art classes, birthday parties and field trips to our studio!
Hours and price subject to change without notice.
Ample metered parking is available on the street or in the lot behind our building.
