Tonight is the Grand Opening for the Northshore Arts and Healing Center. The center opened for business right around the holidays and hit the ground running. The center has attracted some great local visual and healing artists while offering classes to kids and adults. My niece and nephew have been attending their after school art classes with Anna Keay and have been having a blast! Owners Sara and Chad Skowronski describe their vision for the North Shore Arts and Healing Center as follows.
We are a family owned business that came to Maui to create our dream of opening an art studio/gallery and healing center all in one. We are a space designed to provide inspiration to those who seek the path to their dreams. The NAHC is a springboard for those talented individuals in the fine and healing arts that are not meant to work in isolation, trying to make it on their own, but rather through a dedicated community network. You are invited to join this network.
Now that they have been in operation for a couple of months, they are hosting a party to celebrate the center and to better introduce themselves to the local community. Here is a run down on tonight’s events:
