ART ACTIVITIES

Lauhala Weaving: Kids will learn from the group Ulana Me Ka Lokomaika‘i how to make fish and stars out of lauhala. Ulana Ma Ka Lokomaika‘i is celebrating their 50th anniversary and will be displaying papale (hats) and sharing information about their group.

Woven Wall Hangings: Kids will work alongside members of the Handweavers Hui and learn how to make a simple woven wall hanging from yarn. It takes some time to make these, so kids will be able to take home their looms and work at home, too.

Textile Designs: Using textiles from the Trade Cloth from the Coromandel Coast exhibition as inspiration, kids will sketch designs and patterns with fabric pastels on a piece of cotton fabric.

ENTERTAINMENT

Watch the Handweavers Hui work on a special project on the loom.

FAMILY FILM SUNDAY

Revolting Rhymes Part 1 + 2: 11:10am + 1pm. Free. Based on the much-loved children’s book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake, Revolting Rhymes takes classic fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood, then mixes them together and serves them with a mischievous twist.

DRAWING CONTEST

Open to kids age 1 to 17, the contest station features drawing supplies where participants create a drawing based on a theme. 

The winner receives a Supporting Membership to the Honolulu Museum of Art ($100 value), and his or her artwork is used to create the following month’s event brochure and is posted on the museum's website.

Congratulations to last month's winner, Eva Shriver-Kealoha, age 9, from Kailua! This winner was selected by the museum's curator of textiles, Sara Oka. Sara said Eva's drawing looks like she is "sharing her aloha" and is sending a friendly message to HoMA's guests.
