More than 2,000 children from underserved schools have participated in the program so far.
A group of English as a Second Language students is spending one week learning from art teachers, while also expanding their vocabulary.
"We've designed our program to help them develop their language skills at the same time that they are getting to express themselves creatively. The arts support the language development," said Justin Davies, Outreach Programs Coordinator.
The program is funded by one of the museum's biggest events of the year called "August Moon" and Title 3 federal funds.
The students' work will be on display at the Honolulu Museum of Art School until Aug. 3.
