At Daunna’s Art Studio we are committed to the creative learning process.

We provide the materials, guidance, and encouragement needed for creative growth. We foster curiosity, self-examination, and sensitivity to the world we live in. We believe self-expression is an integral part of life, and that the ultimate value of the art experience lies in the process, not the end result.
We have appreciated the opportunity to teach the many students who have studied with us since the studio opened in 1974. Many have developed a long-lasting love of art. All have gained from thoughtful creative expression and the opportunity to employ their complete intellect to positively contribute to our world.

For the time being, all classes by appointment only, please call Daunna at 808-779-8749 to discuss. Mahalo!


The Show and Celebration Move Online!

Every December, we usually have our annual exhibition at Ho’omaluhia Botanical Gardens, where students and teachers have the opportunity to exhibit their work to the public and express what art means to them personally. Sadly, this year that was not possible due to the pandemic.

Instead we will be putting up an online exhibition here on the studio site. If you are a student of Daunna’s and would like to participate in the show, please let her know. It’s in the works and we hope to launch it very soon. Mahalo!
