Aloha &Welcome!

Finally!!!  We are now accepting enrollment for classes, programs and events!  It's been 2 long and trying years.  As with the rest of the world, we've done our best to navigate the difficult currents and tides brought on by the impacts of the pandemic. 

We are deeply grateful.  In our efforts to re-launch and resume operations, we have created an amazing offering of brand new programs and classes, special subscriptions and exciting membership opportunities.  One of the most valuable lessons gained from this extended closure was creating ways to stay connected to our families and the community, both near and far. From private group pages on Facebook, virtual programs via Zoom webinars, monthly NO`EAU or POI subscription boxes, we're prepared to deliver Hawaiian culture and inspiring experiences directly to you wherever you are!  Whether you are a resident or visitor to Kaua`i, we invite you to join us for opportunities now available!

We're super excited about our NO`EAU CREATIVE KEIKI ARTS CLUB for children ages 4 to 12 that will combine elements of art and craft making inspired by special places, stories, culture and songs of Hawai`i!  CULTURE TO CANVAS will be featured in-studio weekly, and is now available for PRIVATE PAINT PARTIES & FUNDRAISERS here and on-location too.  Look forward to our HO`OULU HAWAIIAN LECTURE SERIES this summer and more.

Last but not least, our kumu hula, Kehaulani Kekua will be presenting KUKULU KAHUA, a 4-week session on the fundamental elements of Kaua`i Hula Traditions.  No experience is required and all are welcome to participate.  For those interested in enrolling to study with HALAU PALAIHIWA O KAIPUWAI, this is an ideal introduction to one of Kaua`i's longstanding hula lineages.

Currently, we are only offering virtual programs online.  Follow us on Facebook for spontaneous LIVES highlighting the exciting offerings that lay ahead!  We hope you will join us!

Studio HA`A is located at 4558 Kukui Street in Kapa`a, Kaua`i.  We're just down the same street as ABC Store! Message us on Facebook, or email us at for assistance!
