Welcome to SKEA: A place for creating, moving, singing, playing, and connecting.
UPDATE: Our organization is dedicated to providing activities that contribute to a vibrant and healthy community, and in that spirit, we are modifying our pandemic protocols. Because the virus is still circulating on our island and infecting many more people, we feel it is necessary to require masks for everyone inside and outside, all the time. The only exceptions are with classes or groups where everyone is fully vaccinated. And even then, only if everyone in the group feels OK about it. We are asking the SKEA community to uphold this request via the honor system, so that we may all continue to feel safe and enjoy the benefits of SKEA’s programs. Mahalo, and we wish you continued good judgement and good health.

Youth Art Camps
“Something special happens at this camp. As an educator I see the need for our Keiki to have engaging enrichment experiences outside of school that foster multiple intelligences. SKEA art camp provides children with this opportunity. ”
— Joy Personius, school counselor, SKEA teaching artist, and on-site supervisor for the art camp
