Each year, the Art Maui Symposium Committee strives to present topics that help artists to stretch outside the boundaries, to keep learning, and to challenge the status quo of our skills and abilities.

This year we have invited David Ulrich to join us in discussing “Unlocking Creativity.” David will present a slide show, Eight Keys to Enhanced Creativity. Then, Maui artists Beth Marcil and Ben Kikuyama will join him in exploring what inspires the creative process. The question will be opened for dialogue with the audience: What inspires your creative process?
