We are excited to partner once again with our friends at Manoa Heritage Center to offer a special Garden Tour + Art Workshop. On Tuesday, July 9, 9am-12pm join us for a lovely, fun-filled half day as we first venture through Manoa Heritage Center's beautiful gardens to learn more about their grounds and native plants. Then we will start our Suminagashi Paper Marbling workshop for adults and their keiki ages 5 & up. Delicious pastries from Brug Bakery will also be provided, and participants are welcome to bring a home lunch to enjoy on-site.

Educators & their children cost ONLY $10 per person

*Adults can sign up alone or bring keiki, but keiki must be with a paying adult.*

About Art Explorium

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.
