Donkey Mill Art Center Project Art 2012 (April 14)

* 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, April 14
Tuition: $6, free for participants under the age of 6

The Holualoa Foundation for Art and Culture opens the Donkey Mill Art Center to share simple acts of creativity with the community.

With more than 50 volunteers to guide participants through every new experience the Spring Arts Festival offers an array of hands-on workshops taught by Donkey Mill instructors and visiting artists.

Bring friends and family to experience the magic of Raku firing or turn a plain white T-shirt into a wonderland of creatures through the process of screen printing.

Other activities include paper-making, origami, print-making, drawing/painting, sculpture, ukulele building demo, mixed-media and more.

Raku glazing and firing is one of the most popular activities. Participants should come early for the best selections disappear very quickly. The firing process produces amazing colors ranging from maroons to copper with a myriad of blues and greens.

Bring a blank T-shirt and create your own unique designs with silk screen.

While you take a break from the fun, view a delightful showcase titled “Kala Koa” or colorful in Hawaiian, featuring children’s art from students of Holualoa Elementary School and DMAC Youth Programs which will be on display in the gallery.

If you are curious and want to dabble in it all, plan on spending the day … light refreshments from the BBQ will available for purchase.

Participants are encouraged to carpool.

Proceeds from Project Art 2012 benefit Donkey Mill Art Center youth programs.
