Last year the Hawaii Artist Collaboration launched the art educators fund at its annual art auction. . The money received from guest donations was dedicated to purchase art supplies for Hawaii's public art school teachers. Over $5000 was raised at the event alone and distributed to 13 teachers who had directly applied for the funds for supplies to be used in their classes via applications available online or at Akamai Art. In addition to the donated funds Akamai Art art supply is generously discounting the retail prices so that the fund dollars can stretch even further.
This year ,35 master artists will again gather from around the world to create artwork that will be sold at a silent and live auction in Holualoa on October 22 at the Holualoa inn pavilion. This year we are asking our auction guests to donate $30 to this fund and enjoy an evening celebrating art with this wonderful and creative group.
