Family art class for ages 8 and up by Island Art Party! Basically, this is a fun art class for the whole family to attend because it gathers the whole family around a common activity and allows everyone to express themselves in their own way through painting. I’ve personally done one of these classes and it was a great opportunity to try out something different and an extremely welcoming setting. The classes are always vibrant with music and plenty of laughs. Where: Azeka Shopping Center on South Kihei Road. When: Saturday, March 3rd from 2:00pm to 4:30pm.
