Welcome to the MACC’s Education Hub, the Education Department’s online brochure and handy information and registration source for all of the upcoming education programming

In response to COVID-19, we are working hard to ensure we have virtual offerings that serve the needs of students, teachers and staff in Maui county and beyond. We will be continually updating our offerings throughout the year. Please check each part of our site to see what might work for you and your group. We have open interest/registration forms for virtual CanDo! Days, Professional Development for Teachers and More.

Aloha,

In these times of constant change, we recognize that it is not an easy time for all in our community. Over the past two decades, the Education Department at the MACC has seen the creative power of artists and educators take less than perfect circumstances and dream, co-create and shape the futures that can best serve our communities. As the MACC swims through the changing tides of our time, it is our hope that our 2020-21 offerings support you in this quest. You can find information about our comprehensive arts education programs and register for any of our education programming within our Hub.   If you have any questions or would like additional details contact our Education Department at education@mauiarts.org.

Mahalo nui loa,

Moira Pirsch, PhD, Education Director & the MACC Education Department
