We were between the checkout at our timeshare and dinner at Mama's before our flight. The center is about 30 minutes from the main road through lovely plantation country. The main house has been restored and is beautiful, there is a small historical display of the plantation and the Baldwin family. The center provides art education for the children of... More

Our artist friend suggested we take a diversion on the road to Hana and stop by the town of Makawoa. It was a great idea. This is a shopping experience. There are great clothing shops and better yet, wonderful stores with art by local artists. I collect pineapple art and this place certainly offers a diversity of it. My favorite... More

The Hui is an important and helpful place for community art education on the island of Maui. Beautiful location above Pa'ia, and an interesting historical site.

I found the Hui through a google search after, literally, decades of trips to Maui. I am a potter, and was looking for a clay studio to use during our annual trips. I hit the mother load! It is a different world up there, and a great respite from too much sun on the beach. Stroll the grounds, check out... More

This historical estate is now a non-profit art center serving the Maui community. What a gem! It's open to the public, definitely worth a stop on your way up or down Baldwin Avenue between Paia and Makawao. I live in Paia and make sure to take all of my mainland visitors there. The grounds are unbelievably beautiful, with majestic old... More

The Hui is one of the best kept secrets in Hawaii. You can easily arrange a tour of the classes and grounds - or plan a luncheon for a small group. The exhibits are excellent and the classes and teachers superb! A wonderful experience at one of Maui's most well preserved and historic plantation estates.

We had our 2 kids (6 and 8 years of age) attend the 5-day workshop "Camp Kaluanui - Sense-ational! - Exploring Art through the Five Senses", and it was a great success. Thanks to the teachers for making it an unforgettable experience for the kids and to the sponsor for supporting the fantastic facilities. Special thanks to Program Director Anne-Marie... More

The hui has some outstanding teachers in the visual arts! It's a great place to learn a new skill while you are on the island on Maui. The facilities are state of the art. Try making bangle bracelets, painting in watercolor, throw or build a ceramic pot! Then check out the art gallery for a chance to pick up some... More
