Thanks for your support!
In the Events page you will find information about classes and workshops for students of all ages and stages in Voice, Intermediate Guitar, Slack Key Guitar, Beginning Ukulele, Songwriting, Anatomy Life Drawing and all manner of Arts and Crafts. I am also working towards another wonderful project called the Aloha Arts Academy that will hopefully be realized by 2020...Check it out!...
As more and more programs for the Arts are compromised and cut from school curriculums, it becomes more and more of an imperative to preserve the ancient practices of the Visual, Performing and Healing Arts. The intention behind this Academy is to embody the Arts and to honor their role as primary contributors towards individual, communal and ultimately world healing and advancement. Aloha Indeed.

T.A.T. (Thou Art That), is a workshop that is literally a Dance through one's own life, a Portrait of the soul's journey, an Enactment of the Great Drama that is our shared Humanity/Divinity climaxing in a Live Performance by all the participants, revealing the Arts to be time honored tools for Self Actualization and Collective Harmony, illustrating our own Diva hood and providing a map into the Masterpiece that we already are...Not to speak of what we are becoming!

She has produced festivals like the annual 'Wahine Fest' now in its 10th year, as well as numerous other multimedia productions, cabarets, panel discussions, non-violent direct actions and workshops for both children and adults. She is presently working on her next CD which will also be the soundtrack to a film she has been working on for the past several years.

Thus dubbed, 'The Mistress of Media', Cummings is a true 'Renaissance Woman of the Arts', viewing all of them as tools for both individual and collective healing, not just for self expression but more importantly for self realization. For her, the Arts are needed more now than at any other time in OURstory as they have always been the connective tissue that holds communities together all around this wonderful world of ours. Peace on earth indeed! ALOHA!
