Education has always been an integral part of the Honolulu Museum of Art’s mission. Working closely with educators and schools, we provide resources and experiences to make visual art a foundational element of learning.

Virtual Field Trips

HoMA now offers virtual field trips! We invite students to engage in art, even from a distance, by seeing, making, and talking about art!

School field trips

The best way to learn about art is to experience it. HoMA’s school field trips support educational benchmarks and are free of cost thanks to generous donors who share our vision of enriching education through art.


Outreach programs integrate visual arts into different school subjects and class schedules, helping art remain a foundational part of education.

Lending Collection

The Lending Collection inspires students to connect with art, history, and culture through artifacts and objects from around the world, all at no cost to schools or teachers.


HoMA’s hip-hop music education program encourages students to take risks and cultivate independent thinking in a dynamic learning space.
