Windward STAR Artists Earn Capitol Attention

The best art from Windward students is on view this month at the chamber level of the state Capitol.

As part of the rotating exhibit in state Sen. Jill Tokuda’s Art Review (STAR), the March artists offer their creations in various mediums from Ka‘elepulu, Aikahi and Mokapu elementary schools, and Olomana School.

“The art of our Windward students serve as a positive reminder of why the work we do on behalf of the people of Hawaii is so important,” stated Tokuda, D-District 24 (Kailua-Kaneohe). “Our teachers and schools are to be commended for their commitment to educating the whole child and ensuring arts are part of our Windward curriculum.”

Since STAR began in 2007, it has displayed the artwork of more than 1,650 students, from both public and private schools. April’s exhibit will feature King Intermediate and Kailua High schools. Hours are 6 a.m.-6:30 p.m weekdays, and 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays. For details, call 587-7215.
