What you'll do

Fish printing is fun and easy for all ages.

Have you caught a special fish on your vacation you would like to learn how to print?

Maybe you just want to learn how to do Gyotaku?

Because I go spearfishing regularly, I always have fish in my freezer that we can use.

We will briefly discuss the history of fish printing and talk about spearfishing as we go Over the basics for layout and coloring.

Then we will paint and print the fish. The ink dries fast so we can begin to make some of the details to bring your print to life soon after printing.

This class uses paints and colored pencils. It is a really fun way to make a beautiful wall hanging that captures both the beautiful fish here in hawaii as well have something amazing you made with your own hands just they way you want!
Other things to note
You dont nt need to be an srtist to have fun making great fish prints. The process is easy with a focus on attention to detail and coloring in some of the impression if you desire.

We will use nontoxic acrylic based paints as ink and colorored pencils for highlights.

Ceramics, painting, and spearfishing are my favorite things to do here on Maui. I love to share my art space and teach. Whether its a beginning ceramics class, tai chi, or Gyotaku Fish Printing, I teach in a way that encourages people to explore there artistic sides and just have something fun to do on their vacation.

Printing Gyotaku fish prints is easy and fun with lots of immediate gratification. I keep things client centered to make sure you have an amazing experience and also have a beautiful print to keep as a reminder of an amazing vacation on Maui.
