Why should we continue this next year? I think Hearts for the Art is important because of what we can show to our community. I think it should be something we should continue every year. I think it’s something that our school should make a space for. I think it’s important that we are seen every year. I feel like if we are going to exist as an Arts Department at the school for years to come, we need our due respect, we need our space and I think this event really creates that space for us. What else do you think we should change? Last year we also had a fundraiser. We were able to raise funds for our various programs. I think that would be really nice to bring back. I believe last year we sold tickets to raise funds. That would not be a bad idea. If we could bring the back for next year that would be really good. This year we split them money that came from the donation box. It wasn’t much, but we did make something.

WHAT ARE GOALS FOR NEXT YEAR: INTERVIEW VAUSE!! KELE!! ADD QUOTES TO SUPPORT OR EXPAND ON WHAT YOU WRITE Draft Music to all ears and joy to all eyes, Nanakuli High and Intermediate School students lit up the second annual Hearts for the Arts showcase on February 22, 2018, with a multitude of different performances. Hearts for the Arts is a showcase of the performing arts students who enroll in classes such as ukulele, band, creative dance, visual arts, design, photography, and NPAC (Nanakuli High and Intermediate School Performing Arts Center). The event was put in place to allow the public to showcase what goes on in these classes. “I think it’s pretty cool, that you get to experience the things that are going on in the Art classes, and see all these things,” said student photographer Kystassia Glover. As this was the second year that the Hearts for the Arts showcase was put on, there were many improvements from last year to this year. “I did like how the performances did seem a little more refined this year. Last year was our first year and so I feel like we were just testing it out. This year I feel like we were more ready, more prepared. The program felt a lot more whole. . I think in a more general sense, we were more able to hype each other up. The entire performance had a sense of cohesion with the student’s energy and they were more excited for each other than they feel so it was great. I did like that,” said creative dance class teacher Kele Roberts. One difference from last year to this year was the setup of the showcase, last year Hearts for the Arts was a fundraiser, this year it was free for all to come and donations were accepted. “Last year we also had a fundraiser. We were able to raise funds for our various programs. I think that would be really nice to bring back. I believe last year we sold tickets to raise funds. That would not be a bad idea. If we could bring the back for next year that would be really good. This
year we split them money that came from the donation box. It wasn’t much, but we did make something,” said Roberts.
