Aloha &Welcome Summer!
We're so excited to welcome you back to Studio HA`A in July!
New to our featured Culture to Canvas offerings is our brand new signature ART & PAINT KITS! First up is our KU KA `OHI`A Kit which includes a sweet set of 3 mini stretched canvases that come with wooden easels to display your art pieces when done. Step-by-step instructions, 2 paint brushes, and all of the paint and supplies to complete your project.
In 2018, we discovered that ROD or Rapid `Ohi`a Death, a deadly fungal disease, had made its way into our forested areas on Kaua`i. ʻOhiʻa (Metrosideros polymorpha), is a keystone species that makes up Hawaiʻi’s native forests. First detected on Hawaiʻi Island several years ago, ROD has already devastated more than a million `ohiʻa. Consisting of two fungal pathogens unknown to scientists, there still is no known cure for affected trees.
The `ohi`a lehua is a vital part of our environment and the Hawaiian culture. Thus, it is imperative that do our part to prevent the spread of this disease.
Our vision is to perpetuate Hawaiian ancestral knowledge, philosophies, and practices that are grounded in the primal hula traditions of Kaua`i. A great part of our mission is to inspire and serve communities near and far, through hula, Hawaiian music, art and culture.
Please check back regularly as we continue to update and add on other programs and learning opportunities daily. In-person programs and events will be offered beginning mid-July! We hope you will join us!
Studio HA`A is located at 4558 Kukui Street in Kapa`a, Kaua`i. Just down the same street as ABC Store! Message us on Facebook, or call (808) 720-8494 for assistance!
