The Maui Arts and Cultural Center is bridging CanDo! Day lessons with Social Emotional Learning and Culturally Responsive teaching. This year the Teaching Artists Institute has a special focus on SEL rooted in culture. The CanDo! Day lessons provide an opportunity to guide Hawai’i’s keiki in bridging social emotional learning, culturally relevant pedagogy, and arts integration. The Teaching Artists will offer creative lessons to inspire, encourage and invigorate students to make connections between art, SEL, and culture. As quoted by one of this year’s TA’s, the educational lessons and learnings focus on “the heart and soul of students and teachers in our discovery of ourselves”.


Due to Covid-19, Beginning February 1st, 2021 CanDo! Days will be offered virtually this year. All classes will be delivered online via Vimeo and be available for a 5 day period per grade/school. Schools have the option to express interest for one grade, multiple grades, or an entire school.
