What you'll do

You will quickly understand how fun it is to drop the ink onto the paper and watch it spread, then add more colors to see how they interact. Wipe away what you donʻt like with a little alcohol and see how that reacts. Sea creatures, mermaids and beautiful waves emerge through minimal brush strokes, details grow with a touch and bubbles rise to the surface with a spritz.

Different sizes of paper will give you the opportunity to work small and larger, whichever you are comfortable with. Small paper can be used as gift tags or your very own artist trading cards. Larger paintings can be framed when you get home but we will show you how they will look in a frame - you wonʻt believe it!

Anytime during the class you need a break, step away to look at the the gorgeous views of Pearl Harbor and the Waianae Mountains, take a few pictures and drink some of Hawaiiʻs Own Juices or bring your own drinks. When we get back to it you will be able to immerse yourself in your art and come away with 2-3 paintings you can take home to frame. Whenever you look at them in your home you will remember your magical stay in Hawaii.

Iʻve been teaching art for over 10 years. As a scuba diver and stand-up paddler I get to experience the sea creatures we will create together. I am passionate about protecting our oceans. Awareness of who lives in the ocean gives us understanding about why we should protect our oceans. Alcohol ink is fluid, like the ocean, and is one of the most fun art mediums I have found that turns out beautiful every time!

It was so amazing and special experience for me. I loved the atmosphere, the beautiful view, the ink painting method, and that the materials were very high quality. Thank you for a special magical afternoon experience, and for the time and place to create unique art (and of course the drinks and snacks!) I would definitely recommend !!

The instructor, Kuuipo puts you at ease and encourages your strengths in your paintings. Being open minded will allow you the best results. Kuuipo’s services are top notch with framing your favorite piece and securing it in a professional plastic protector. I would be excited to take the class again.

Highly recommend this experience! I’m not much of an artist but this was so enjoyable. I learned a ton and I’m so proud of the artwork I get to take home.

I loved this class! I learned a new style of painting, shared fun stories with Ku’uipo and produced 4 lovely art pieces. It was a relaxing way to end off my day of travel. I highly recommend it!
