ART SHORTS

Web site advances arts in education

The Hawaii Arts Alliance continues to stay ahead of the national pack with its new statewide arts and education Web site at http://www.hawaiiartsalliance.org.

The site is intended to be a one-stop locale for arts education opportunities, including resources for teachers, students, parents and the general public.

The Arts Education eCenter, a comprehensive guide to arts education statewide, was created to assist teachers in curriculum enhancement via the arts. It also serves as a resource for students interested in art contest opportunities.

The site, comprising such categories as 2-D and 3-D fine art, acting, books/literature, dance, festivals, film/digital media production, photography and theater, provides new search guides to find artists, art groups and creative events in Hawaii.

The eCenter is a model for arts education nationally through ARTS FIRST, a legislatively mandated partnership that ensures the arts remain in the classroom.

Academy of Arts gets Target grant

The Honolulu Academy of Arts has received a grant from Target that will allow it to provide arts education at five elementary schools that service primarily military children.

The museum's Art to Go program, an after-school community arts program geared toward at-risk youth, cultivates creativity in its students and offers courses to support academics and help build self-esteem.

Target donates 5 percent of its income—approximately $3 million weekly—to organizations that support education, the arts, social services and volunteerism.
