Image Waialua, Hawai’i, April, 16th, 2008 – Just one day before Earth Day on April 22nd, marine artist and avid waterman Hilton Alves will begin work on a community mural, depicting Waimea Bay and marine life, that will span Waialua High School’s 28' tall x over 120' long gym wall. Hilton will begin the mural on April 21st, 2008 and will finish by May 1st, when Waialua High will host the Waialua Complex Education Fair. The 10 day event invites students, community members, and anyone interested to contribute to the community art piece. Kenneth Capes, a teacher at Waialua and co-coordinator of this mural project, says, “Waialua/Haleiwa is a small town out in the country and doesn't get these opportunities too often. This artwork will become a landmark that will only make community pride stronger.”
Image The mural is part of a larger project started by the artist called Surf Art Kids. Surf Art Kids is a social project designed to expose children and youth to environmental awareness and foster in them a respect and love for the ocean and marine life through art. This mural will be Hilton’s 5th in an island school and is made possible through partnerships with Kono's Cafe in Haleiwa, North Shore Equipment Rentals, Bob's Equipment Rentals, Schofield Barracks Army Base, Del's Photo Lab in Haleiwa, Green Tree Service, Da Hui, C4 Waterman and Waialua High School. Past murals include one at Waialua Elementary School, two at Sunset Beach Elementary School, and one at Waialua High School. Hilton is working to build similar partnerships on O’ahu to reach more schools through his project.

ABOUT: Surf Art Kids Project

Who: Marine artist and surfer Hilton Alves is a lover of the sea. This passion leads him to express all the beauty of the aquatic world in drawings, paintings and murals. Self-taught, Hilton began painting professionally seven years ago. Through outreach to youth, Hilton fulfills his drive to give back to the community and spread the word of protection of the world’s most precious resources.

What: Surf Art Kids, created by Hilton Alves, is a social project designed to expose children and youth to environmental awareness and foster in them a respect and love for the ocean through art.

These activities include, but are not limited to, live art exhibitions, community art projects, teaching painting techniques, teaching air brush techniques, drawing techniques, murals in schools, painting in hospitals and in organizations for special needs children and interactive community displays. "The project was developed because I wanted to broaden my horizons as a marine artist. This could spread my gift and put a little art and fun in the life of others ". - reports Hilton Alves.

When: The project began in 2004, in partnership with the city of Guaruja in Sao Paulo, Brazil. With the help of many sponsors, including Hawaiian Dreams, Petrobras, Tamar Project, El Camino Tour, DN Design, and more, Hilton was able to spread the project into over 20 cities and 4 states in Brazil.

How: Surf Art Kids is able to touch the lives of many youth and communities with the help and support of community partners and sponsors.

Why: A difference will be made in the lives of many people through the experiences and art created through Surf Art Kids. A difference will be made in the quest for environmental awareness and protection through the lesson taught and art created through Surf Art Kids.
