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.
