Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation Award Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center a grant supporting free visual arts centered field trips to Maui County preschools

Makawao, HI – Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center was awarded a $15,000 grant by the Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation. These grant funds will be used to continue providing much needed arts-rich learning opportunities to Maui County preschool students, their chaperones, and teachers through the Hui’s Preschool Arts Program.

“The Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation, one of America’s oldest family foundations, knows the value of art programs for our preschool-age children,” said the Foundation’s Executive Director Alfred Castle. “Opportunities for early self-expression compliment high quality preschool social-emotional, physical and cognitive development in children and it also assists in our efforts to see all of Hawaii’s children ready for kindergarten,” Castle added. “Hui No‘eau is doing a terrific job in this regard and is a valued partner of our Foundation in serving Hawaii’s children and families.”

The Hui’s Preschool Arts Program is a FREE program, made possible through the generosity of the Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation. This program brings preschool students, their chaperones and teachers to the Hui to participate in fun and interactive art lessons taught by Hui Teaching Artists. Students are guided through a gallery exhibition, experience various art media and tools in the Hui’s professionally equipped public studios, view artist demonstrations, and create a work of art to bring home. Field Trips are two hours in duration plus any additional time for the group to explore, play or enjoy a picnic lunch on the grounds of the beautiful and expansive Kaluanui estate.
