Description of Services

Aloha Workshop, Grades 3-5th   
An interactive workshop between instructor and students that teaches students about Hawaii. Students are taught basic Hawaiian language, basic Hula steps and the basic skill of dancing and playing musical instruments. All these skills build upon each other throughout the hour which concludes with a performance by the students. The students are encouraged to participate by asking questions and providing answers at the end.

Aloha Workshop will provide a creative learning environment for the "Keiki" and "Kupuna." (That means, for children and adults). Students will learn about the diverse cultural history of our 50th state, Hawaii. Through performance, lecture and visual display of Hawaiian culture, students and teachers will explore natural living through the art of hula, storytelling, and music. This in turn, will inspire both children and adults to embrace their own cultural heritage, as well as those of others. They will be encouraged to spread the "Aloha Spirit," a working philosophy that enables and empowers people to live harmoniously with each other.

Creating an exciting environment for the students will encourage enthusiasm through group participation. Instructor will also encourage staff participation, which in turn will motivate and excite students to participate. An exchange of dialogue between instructor and students will keep the students attention and foster a relationship of trust and respect between the instructor and the students.

An expectation of total group participation from beginning to end is the main indicator of progress. When the instructor is able to call out each hula step in Hawaiian and the students successfully respond accordingly, the instructor can then access the students' progress. At the conclusion of the workshop, the students will perform a hula using all the skills they have learned, solidifying the students' progress.

At the end of the workshop, the instructor will pass out an evaluation form for the staff to fill out. This evaluation method will assess the success of the workshop, based on their purposes.

Hawaiian Quilt Workshop, Grades 3-5th   
A Hawaiian cultural workshop designed to teach students from third to fifth grade through the crafting of Hawaiian paper quilt pattern. They will learn the technique of “snowflake” cutting a design all at one time in traditional quilting using only two colors. They will learn a traditional hula and hear a story of the Hawaiian quilt and how special for the Hawaiian family to share in the making of and giving the celebration of Aloha to each generation part of cultural heritage.

Students (grades 3-5) will explore the meaning of ALOHA as it is inspired by the Hawaiian quilting craft. They will learn their Hawaiian name as well as its meaning, introducing the students to the Hawaiian language and learning of the transitional era of the 1820's for the native Hawaiian people. They will create their own paper quilt block filled with ALOHA! They will experience the art of hula, storytelling and music. This in turn will inspire the students to embrace their own cultural heritage as well as those of others as they are encouraged to spread the "Aloha Spirit," a working philosophy that enables and empowers people to live harmoniously with each other.

The Hawaiian Quilt Workshop is hands on; therefore the instructor will provide the students with samples of the final craft. A handout will be provided which will clearly list the steps in detail and assist during the crafting process. This handout will also help define and reinforce the meaning of Aloha and its significance in crafting a Hawaiian quilt. Story telling will be utilized to present the cultural significance and history of the Hawaiian quilt as we read the pictorial book of a youth who receives a gift of the Hawaiian quilt. Students will view the book of Hawaiian names during crafting and learn the translation of their name and its meaning. In the Spirit of Aloha we will sing and dance the hula, "Pupu Hinu Hinu" in the Hawaiian language. There will be allotted time for further discussion and an opportunity for questions and comments.

The students will have a completed paper Hawaiian quilt pattern block with their Hawaiian name to take and treasure. They will sing and dance a hula in the native Hawaiian language. They will experience the philosophy of the Aloha Spirit as they smile over their accomplishment!

At the end of the workshop, the instructor will pass out an evaluation form for both the staff and students to fill out. This evaluation method will assess the success of the workshop and encourage suggestions for further workshop improvements.
