Art Classes

The Honolulu Museum of Art School building is currently being renovated and upgraded. Work is anticipated to finish in early 2022. During this time, HoMA’s studio classes and programming will be on hold until further notice. We’re sorry for this inconvenience, and welcome you to visit our main campus to enjoy our current exhibition Joyful Return, or go to our website for engaging and educational digital content until we can meet, learn and create together in the Art School once again.

Covid-19/Renovation Update | May 4, 2021

To our Art School Community,

With hope on the horizon, the Honolulu Museum of Art is welcoming the community back to exciting, innovative and increasingly shared experiences at our main campus. At this time, however, the Art School building remains under renovation with a goal to bring the facility and programming up to a higher level of excellence for our community. We anticipate that this work will finish sometime in early 2022. This means that HoMA’s studio classes and programming will continue to be on hold until further notice.

During the renovation, we’ve introduced a new model of education and audience engagement that allows for digital and distance learning until we’re able once again to meet, learn and create together in the Art School (click here for more information). Education has been at the core of our mission and will remain an enduring part of our service to this community.

Thank you for your understanding and please be assured that the museum remains committed to our art education programs. We will continue to keep you updated, and will be excited to announce when studio classes are available once again.

We appreciate your continued support, and look forward to seeing you soon!

Youth Classes

All of our Young Artist classes are rooted in the arts education philosophy of Teaching for Artistic Behaviors. Classes are student-centered and choice-based using a structure that introduces inspiration, demonstrations and reflection and are supplemented by visits to the Museum.
