Artists and the Environment Program
The Artists and the Environment Program is sponsored by Performing and Fine Artists for World Peace and Recycle Hawai`i. The program brings artists, resource educators and native Hawaiian cultural practitioners into classrooms throughout Hawai`i Island. Presentations link art and native Hawaiian culture with recycling, sustainable practices and stewardship of our unique natural environment.
Presentations are facilitated by one of our outreach coordinators; the focus being on environmental issues, placing particular emphasis on island-wide recycling opportunities. One of the goals is the promotion of sustainable practices that students can integrate into their lives.
Guest artists share demonstrations of hula, Hawaiian healing arts and implement making, music and dance performances, creative drama, recycled art, painting and other artistic endeavors. Presenters seek to share their relationship with the environment and convey its effect on their art and lives. Presentations range from 45 - 90 minutes, depending on the age of the students.
