Honolulu Museum of Art School

The Honolulu Museum of Art School, opened in 1990 in the historic Linekona building, is the hub of the Honolulu Museum of Arts' arts education programming. Education was the driving force behind the founding of the museum, and the Museum has offered classes and tours since it opened in 1927. Generations of artists, from noted childrens book illustrator Mercer Mayer to painter Dorothy Faison got their start taking art classes at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Today, the Honolulu Museum of Art School reaches approximately 60,000 children and adults each year through studio art classes, workshops with visiting artists, school programs, outreach programs, and exhibitions.
