HeART Workshop for all children and youth involved with FPH

45 children demonstrated their artistic talent at the HeART Workshop at the Honolulu Museum of Art on Sunday, April 1st. After a tour of the museum, facilitators instructors Eric Keli‘i Beyer and Emily McIlroy taught watercolor and oil pastel resist to the children and let them create their own masterpiece. HPU graduate students put together the event for FPH as part of their Communications class over the course of the spring semester. “I learned the importance of staying flexible to keep the event running smoothly, which is a valuable skill to learn for any profession,” said Tobias Becker, an HPU grad student who acted as the client liaison.

I Help Kids!

“I would most definitely recommend volunteering. Just seeing the kids laugh and enjoy themselves is very rewarding to me. The program coordinators and parents are also wonderful. Those are the reasons that really make me enjoy the time I spend volunteering." Kyra Blue - FPH Volunteer, RFSS Support Groups in Hilo
