The MAC continues to abide by current Maui county and Hawaii state guidelines. While most mandates have been lifted, the MAC desires a safe space for our staff, artists, affiliates, guests and members to create.
- First and foremost, PLEASE stay home if you are not feeling well.
- Staff, instructors and hosts will continue to follow a “vaccinate or test” protocol.
- Each instructor or host will continue to sanitize before and after classes. We ask that all who enter the studio sanitize hands and do a temperature check.
- Masks are not required, but highly encouraged. Masks are required during DOE co-sponsored classes.
- We ask for ALOHA and HA’AHA’A when deciding how to create with others who share the same space.
Please continue to sign up for all classes. Call (808) 567-9696 and leave a message. We will now accept walk-ins, however, our studio capacity is still TEN and we may turn walk-ins away. Signing up will be to your advantage. You can also call that number up to five minutes before class starts. Let’s continue to enjoy our space safely.
