The Maui Arts & Cultural Center's Education online brochure and handy information and registration source for all of the upcoming education programming

As we all recalibrate our lives after the past two years, we are excited to offer in-person programming once again! You’ll see on this website pages that highlight offerings for Students, including CanDo! Days and School Shows, our developing offerings for Teachers, Professional Development Programs and Teaching Artist Institutes. We also have developed a robust archive of virtual resources, including our Motivational Series, featuring local artists intimate messages of hope and inspiration! We will continue to update this site, so please check back often. We look forward to welcoming you back to the MACC this year.


With light,

Dr. Moira Pirsch, Education Director

In the last couple of years,  MACC Education has reached out to a handful of local artists and asked them to share their motivational stories to uplift our community. As a bonus, each artist offers a mini virtual concert or performance just for our viewers! Below are snippets of Glenn Awong & Kilihune Kaʻaihue who are a couple of the wonderful talent we featured!
