Students working on one-point perspective drawings of the campus
After an extensive overview of the main elements of art and principles of design the art classes at Maui Preparatory Academy are in full swing. This week the 4th grade students have learned one-point perspective and are creating drawings of campus for display at the Maui County Fair.
Students learned basic one-point perspective and then have been applying their understanding to various sketches until they find the one that they would like to turn into their final design. Please visit the Maui County Fair Art section to support our students art work, as well as attend the Art Gallery at Napili Coffee Store and Plaza on October 16th from 5-7pm. This community gallery event will replace the Lower School Arts night; however, will provide community involvement and a relaxing atmosphere to sip a nice beverage and view art work in a gallery setting. Art presented at this gallery will be from students in grades K, 2, and 4. Students in grades 1, 3, and 5 will have art classes starting in October and will have a community gallery in December. Thank you for your support of the arts.

Move Over Famous Artists! Maui Preparatory Academy artists are taking over the spotlight! Starting this school year with a concentrated effort by utilizing Artsonia, www.artsonia.com — the world’s largest online kid’s art museum — to display the students’ artwork, students work has already been posted for this school year.
Anyone can view the school gallery online at: www.artsonia.com/schools/maui1. Visitors can browse the artwork in the school gallery by grade level, or by specific exhibits. Maui Preparatory Academy students join thousands of students from over 130 countries whose artwork is showcased on Artsonia. This program is a wonderful way to get parents and family members more involved in Art Education, as well as to share student artwork with family members and friends.
All of Artsonia’s artwork (20 million and counting!) are viewable online, and any teacher or parent can create an online art gallery for their child or school. Artsonia provides several online features such as fan clubs and personal guestbooks, as a way for families to encourage the creativity and imaginations of their young artists. In addition, family members can purchase keepsakes imprinted with the child’s artwork, with Artsonia donating 20 percent of their annual product revenue back to school art programs.
Headquartered in Gurnee, Ill., Artsonia was established in 2000 as an online kid’s art museum providing free, educational resources for kids, families and schools to create art projects. Since its inception, Artsonia continues to integrate technology in the classroom, develop multi-cultural understanding through art and increase family involvement in children’s education.
