The Lahaina Arts Guild was established in 2018 by members of the Lahaina Arts Society (LAS) as a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization to provide children’s art programs, and to bring the world of art to our military veterans. Historically, LAS provided free, on-site art classes and activities to children living in Maui County. Classes began at the Banyan Tree Gallery and the Old Jail Gallery in the historic Old Lahaina Courthouse in the 1970s, and the Lahaina Arts Guild continues this tradition with our local artists as teachers and mentors for our Keiki, as well as our extended veterans community.

Lahaina Arts Guild is dedicated to providing Maui County youth and veterans access to the creative arts through education and artistic opportunities. The Guild provides skills-based art classes for children of all ages, Veterans Art Exploration programs and an Annual High School Art Competition, Exhibition and Scholarship Awards Program.

Please join us today! Help us grow our classes and scholarships. Your generous donation makes our Keiki and Veterans art programs possible.
