The new year also brings new policies in light of fluid COVID safety rules and increased requests for studio time. Classes are still limited to six per appointment, so to allow for more individuals to participate, payment is required before sign up. Cost for one keiki class is $10 or buy a $25 punch card for five classes. Adult cost for studio time is $60 per month, two classes per week. Visit molokaiartscenter.org for more information. Available times can be found on the website. To sign up, call April at (808) 658-0933.
