Inspired By Nature: Visual Arts Professional Development Training for Educators

ʻĀina & Arts: In order to connect children to our ʻāina through the arts, we need to connect their teachers. Friends of Pōmaikaʻi offers top quality training for educators from all over our state at no cost to teachers and teaching artists. Every workshop is designed to help educators learn visual arts techniques & teaching strategies, with the goal of awakening awareness of our environment and deepening a sense of responsibility for our Earth in our keiki as they create in their classrooms.  We call this workshop series: Inspired By Nature
