Imagination Soars

ʻŌhiʻa Productions’ Imaginations Soars! Program brings performing arts in to the classroom. This program integrates performing and visual arts while addressing multiple learning styles, engaging the verbal, aural and kinesthetic learners. Teaching artists will use the national standards as a guide to teach students how to use their voice, body and imagination to express themselves in arts activities that promote critical thinking and problem solving. Students will build community and increase self-esteem through this program. This program meets HCPS III in Science, Language Arts, Social Studies and Fine Arts.

The Imagination Soars! Program is an excellent introduction or follow up to ʻŌhiʻa’s popular Educational Touring Program and may also stand on its own.

ʻŌhiʻa Productions has the flexibility to work with parents, teachers and administrators in developing a curriculum of interest for your school community. Cognizant of State and National Standards as well as new Science curricula such as FOSS and STP, we will work with your school community to build a living, breathing curriculum that is science and arts integrated suited to your school’s needs!
