Momilani Student Winners in MOA art Contest

May 22, 2020

Every year the MOA Museum of Art holds a children’s painting contest. Around the world, MOA branches host their own local art shows. In total there are almost half a million entries! Winners are chosen, an art exhibition is held, and then the best of shows are sent to Japan to compete internationally. Last year, 3 paintings from Hawaii were chosen as part of the 31st Annual Children’s Painting Exhibition held at the MOA Museum of Art in Japan.

This year MOA Hawaii chose to make its exhibition Virtual. They wanted to share the talent and creativity of the keiki of Hawaii with you and the world.

Picture of Eva Romualdo with a quote about why she enjoys art.

Best of Show winner Eva Romualdo says, “I think that art is a great way to express yourself and a way of learning many new things. When I made this painting, I thought of how these colors can make a feeling of joy and calmness.”

As founder Mokichi Okada once said, “The most precious Art of all, is the Art that gives pleasure to man, uplifting his heart.”

Thank you MOA Hawaii for providing opportunities for our children to express themselves through creating art!!! MOA Hawaii Art classes are held on Fridays afterschool.

Aloha from Mr. Nishihara!

I've been working very hard on a new Ripples of Kindness Activity that I would like our whole school to get involved in during the extended school closure. Please join my Google Classroom to see the lesson that I assigned to everyone. (Momilani students should log in to the Google Classroom and accept my invitation to my class.)

Also, please check out my page on the Momilani Website under "School Life" for more information and resources that I shared in the assignment.

We miss you all and hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. Please take care and remember to "Keep your face always toward the sunshine..."
