HPU Arts Instructor Named Executive Director of Honolulu Printmakers

Denise Karabinus, adjunct Arts faculty in HPU’s College of Professional Studies (CPS), leads the Honolulu Printmakers, an over 90-year-old nonprofit organization, as its executive director, effective July 1, 2022. 

Karabinus currently teaches Sustainable Art and Design and Introduction to Art. She has been with the university since 2015, teaching courses as an adjunct faculty. 

“I enjoy working with the CPS veteran student population,” Karabinus said. “Veterans and their families come from diverse backgrounds and bring unique life experiences to the classroom. Our lively conversations about living abroad bring together real-world perspectives and ideas from across the globe to our Sustainable Art and Design course.”

Karabinus earned a BFA with Honors from Maine College of Art & Design and an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
