Art of the Educator - Hunakai Studio - through Nov 19th

After posting about the 'Art of the Educator' exhibit at the Hunakai Studios in Foxborough. I caught up with Carla Carey, the Executive Director. The exhibit has been extended until Nov 19th due to the positive interest shown. There are works from about 14 teachers representing Franklin, Foxborough, Mansfield, Medfield, Middleborough and Sharon.

There are about 50 pieces of art work being exhibited covering multiple forms of expression; sculpture, painting, and pottery. Carla was enthusiastic talking about the show. "It is kind of surprising to see some of the work, it is not your 'always conservative' teacher showing. It is really super and fun."

The show is a biannual affair for the studio to feature the importance of art education for the community. Carla hopes that the parents will see this and look to foster the creative arts in their communities. The creative arts teach problem solving techniques. With the current budget issues most school districts are facing, this kind of creative problem solving is becoming all the more important.

The Hunakai Studio operates as a school of fine arts serving students from 5 to 92. The studio will work with the schools to develop a portfolio. They have five separate studios to work with. The teachers are themselves professional artists. The environment is very much alive!
