An annual festival provides multiple opportunities to tap into your creativity

@Body text1:Find your happy medium at the Fourth Annual Paliku Arts Festival, which will offer prospective artists a chance to try a variety of endeavors during a day of activities at Windward Community College on April 5.

The festival was the creation of former WCC theater teacher Ben Moffat, who wanted to offer a day for anyone to get some professional guidance at the many art classes on campus.

“This festival has an open and adventurous ‘learn-by-doing’ vibe,” festival co-chairman Rob Molyneux said in a news release.

Molyneux will teach screen printing at the festival. Kids can also try their hand at piano, pottery, drawing, poetry, woodcarving, stage combat, fiber art, mask-making, clay sculpting, screenwriting and acting.

Entertainment will be provided by Ka’ala Carmack and Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning group Kaukahi in Paliku Theatre. The kids’ play “The Charge of ‘Ai’ai” will be staged twice, and the Imaginarium will show “Secrets of the Dragon” ($3) every 20 minutes. Craft and food vendors will be on hand.

The festival is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Windward Community College in Kaneohe. Visit or email Molyneux at rmolyneu@
