It’s Time to Have Some FUN!

Think about it… you worked many, many years, sacrificing your desire to do something different; something creative; something for yourself. Now you are retired and it is go time! It’s time to do something fun! What could be more enjoyable than going back to school to express your creativity through art?

Classes for individuals age 55-plus are being held at the Honolulu Museum of Art (HoMA) at 1111 Victoria St. for just a couple hours a week. HoMA’s website says, “Art for Life classes are designed to unleash your creativity and self-expression and offer opportunities for new connections.”

I had the great pleasure of sitting in on the Art of Life: Watercolor class for beginners, observing the gathering of eager, energetic and talented students. I was very impressed as I walked around the room and saw pencil drawings of objects that students brought from home.

Everyone seemed to enjoy immersing themselves in the creative process. And the instructor, Mark Norseth, made it all very fun and interactive.

Other classes that HoMA has available for seniors in Art for Life:
• Mixed Media and Collage (all levels)
• Ceramic Handbuilding (all levels)
• Shibori Creations (all levels)

Don’t they sound inviting?

Spring 2024 registration is open and will close at the beginning of April, so sign up soon! The eight-week classes start on April 19. Tuition includes free parking and museum admission.
