Recently Animal Kindness Club Art Class held its exhibition of family art in Kihei. Every child between the ages of 6 and 15 showed their best three paintings from a class of 15 weeks in which they painted 15 works each. A certificate of excellence was also awarded to each of them.
Each child had their teacher read the certificate of the award with detailed descriptions of each of the three paintings selected. They then asked their parents to choose their favourite of the three artworks of their child and to tell them why it inspires them.
Students from the Animal Kindness Club Art Class painted Hawaiian native stilts and coots and their art was used as a fundraiser at the Kealia Pond National Refuge Visitor Center on greeting cards available for purchase.
Animal Kindness Club Art Class offers regular daily art classes from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for grades 6-16. Wednesdays. The cost is 10 dollars a week. Classes are held in Kihei and are co-sponsored by the Parks & Recreation Department of the county. Students represent endangered species of animals and hear about animal conservation in pencils and aquarelles around the world.
