Our Hours & Holiday Schedule

We wish you the happiest of holidays and hope you enjoy quality time with your loved ones. Just FYI we will be taking a few days off during the holidays as well:

  • Monday, December 24: Closed
  • Tuesday, December 25: Closed
  • Monday, December 31: Closed
  • Tuesday, January 1: Closed

The best way to find out about our schedule is to check our Online Calendar. We try to be consistent but sometimes things change or we add extra activities.

*Please note that our schedule on third party web sites such as Google and Yelp is not always accurate... it is more difficult for us to make updates to those sites, plus their models don't fit what we do super well. Mahalo!

About Art Explorium

Art Explorium provides a community art studio to nurture the creative potential in children.

Art Explorium is a non-profit organization in Kaimuki that provides art opportunities for youth. Stop by and try out our art stations (request a $5 per person coupon>>>).

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!

General Information
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.
