at my studio, on the Kona side of the Big Island, in Hawaii

I have over 30 years experience painting on porcelain


Classes are:

Thursdays from
9 am to Noon

9 am to Noon


Beginners may start by on either Thursday or Saturday, depending on space available.
Classes are $20 per 3-hour class session.

Beginner's Kit is $20, a one-time expense.

The kit includes two brushes, the plate on which you will do your first painting and other needed items.

Once you have completed your first piece,
or if you already have experience in china painting
you may continue as an ongoing student
attending classes on Thursday or Saturday
(or both days, if desired, and as space permits)
same day and time

The China Painting field has a wide variety of techniques
of which there is not time enough to learn in the begining sessions.
If you are interested, I can teach you other techniques after you have completed painting on your first piece.

Classes are located at my Studio in Captain Cook
on the Kona side of the Big Island, approximately 12 miles south of Kailua-Kona

If you live on the Big Island or are coming for a visit
Call or contact me for more information or to register for classes.

If you are a china painter, just planning a visit to the Big Island and want to china paint during your visit, or need to have a piece (or pieces) fired while you are here, give me a call or email me:

Learn to Paint on Porcelain

Create beautiful decorated porcelain objects for gifts, home or sale.

Traditional (naturalistic) china painting (also called porcelain painting) will be taught.

The classes will consist of hands-on instruction on mixing paints and the application of overglaze paint.  Information will also be given about the nature of china painting, where to buy porcelain and supplies and online porcelain organizations.  I will fire your pieces between each class session.

Information about Luster painting  and other applications on porcelain will also be discussed.  Training in these related techniques is also available, if desired, after you have completed your initial lessons.

An abundance of blank porcelain pieces for China Painting and a variety China Painting supplies are available for sale in the studio, but you are welcome to bring your own supplies and porcelain pieces to paint.
