Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center and Pōmaika‘i Elementary School partner to offer professional development workshops for Maui educators with John F. Kennedy Center’s Melanie Rick

Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center, in partnership with Pōmaika‘i Elementary School, is offering
two Professional Development Workshops for Maui educators with John F. Kennedy Center’s Melanie
Rick on Saturday, January 20th at Hui No‘eau. Melanie Rick is a National Board Certified Teacher,
certified Reading Specialist, and co-owner and senior arts integration consultant for Focus 5, Inc. Melanie
works in art museums, schools, and art centers across the country helping teachers develop their students’
visual literacy and critical thinking skills. Melanie is currently a course leader and instructional arts coach
for the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Art’s Changing Education Through the Arts (CETA)
program in Washington, D.C.

This workshop series is Hui No'eau’s first collaboration with Pōmaika‘i Elementary School. The
partnership was developed with the goal of providing increased visual arts education resources for Maui’s
youth and educators. “The Hui met with Pōmaika‘i’s Arts Integration Coordinator and Coach Rae
Takemoto and realized that we could serve more of the Maui community by working together,” said Lana
Coryell, Senior Program Manager at Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center. “The Hui is thrilled to create a
partnership with Pōmaika‘i Elementary and hope this will be the first of many more collaborative efforts.”
Hui No’eau invites educators to register for one or both of Melanie’s workshops:
Reading and Talking about Visual Art in the Early Childhood Classroom (Grades PreK-2)
Saturday, January 20 / 8:30 am – 11:30 am
Students in grades K-2 are often emerging readers who are depending on images to provide visual
cues to aid in comprehension. This workshop focuses on looking and talking about illustrations in
fiction picture books before, during, and after reading to help students develop the skills of
prediction, inference, drawing conclusions, sequence, and retelling a story.
Tuition & Supply Fee: $15
Reading Art Across the Curriculum: Observe-Infer-Inquire (Grades 3 – 8)
Saturday, January 20 / 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Visual art is a text that students of all reading abilities can access. This workshop introduces the
language of visual art so that teachers feel confident looking, thinking, and talking about art with
their students. Join us to learn about resources for building a library of images that can be used to
efficiently build background knowledge, teach content, generate points of inquiry for research,
and assess understandings in social studies, science, and reading. Tuition & Supply Fee: $15
Interested educators can pre register for each of these professional development workshops at
huinoeau.com or by calling 808-572-6560. Tuition is only $15.
Hui No‘eau is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community visual arts education organization located at 2841
