Last Minute News for Educators and Artists!

Tonight: For all of the educators and citizens concerned with education, KHET’s Island Insights will be focusing on Early Childhood Education tonight! Dan Boylan will be the moderator hosting Hawaii’s Congresswoman Mazie Hirono and Mr. Alfred Castle, the Executive Director of the Samuel N. & Mary Castle Foundation this evening.

Congresswoman Hirono is the politician who introduced the Providing Resources Early for Kids (PRE-K) Act. This Act is designed to “improve early childhood education and prepare children for success in school and in life.”

The Samuel N. & Mary Castle Foundation, represented this evening by Mr. Alfred Castle, has its primary focus set also to early childhood education. We’ll talk more about the Castle Foundation at a later date, I promise!

This should be a show worth watching! Apparently, call-ins are allowed during the show too!

Artists – Hurry! The Kim Taylor Reece Gallery has issued a call to all of you aspiring artists out there and “all artists interested in participating” in this event! This is the Gallery’s 1st Juried Show.I had to look that up. “Juried” show means that “you must submit slides or photographs which are reviewed by a jury (a knowledgeable committee) and your work will be accepted into the show based on technical skill, creativity, the medium, and/or other requirements.”

  • Open to all Artists 18 and older, Any fine art media is acceptable.
