Can you explain what a class entails?
Our 1 to 1.5 hour classes take place in our ventilated studios and include everything you need to create a beautiful canvas of whatever size you desire. Nothing else is required besides bringing a smile and some comfy clothes and shoes!
Once your group arrives, we will do a short briefing going over the experience that you will be enjoying. From there we will get started!
But don’t worry, your instructor will be there every step of the way. They will help you and your group by demonstrating techniques, helping match color choices, helping you achieve the vision in your mind, and so much more while you play and create.
Once you are happy with your final product, your instructor will go over how long it will take for your work of art to be ready – fluid art as some lengthy drying times! You will get information on when to return to pick up your work of art, and be on your way ready for whatever is next!
What Is Fluid Art?
Different pigments of paint are made of different materials, each with a specific weight and density. Some are heavier, such as metals, and some, such as those from plant matter or resins, are lighter. When the pigments are all suspended and mixed together in a similar fluid medium, the various pigments push and pull against each-other.
Depending on the pigment’s viscosity and quantity, they move around, sometimes mix, and often they rise or sink to create the appearance of organic cells on the canvas. There is always a bit of mystery as to what your final piece will look like, which is part of the joy of this technique.

We will walk you through the experience step-by-step, help you select colors, and help answer any questions once you begin creating!
How Old Do You Have To Be To Participate?
We recommend children being at least 3 before participating in a fluid art experience with parents or guardians. Children under 13 must be supervised by a parent or guardian.
Are the bookings private?
Yes! The experience you book will be private to your group. That being said, we cannot promise that other experiences won’t be happening concurrently in the studio!

What Are The Accessibility Requirements?
For those differently abled, the chance to create a work of art with paint comes with so many barriers it can seem impossible. Fluid Art knocks those barriers down by removing the need for paintbrushes, precision movement, and even traditional sensory input!
We are happy to host and teach anyone who requires accessibility services. We welcome guests every day with disabilities ranging from intellectual, motor, sensory and more. Fluid Art is widely discussed among art therapists as one of the best forms of art therapy. So much so, Hawaii Fluid Art is currently developing our own therapeutic course offerings.
In short, without the expectation to create “the tangible”, fluid art allows creativity to flow through a variety of senses. From touch as paint runs over the edges of your canvas onto your fingers to sound as the paint pools below your first pours. Come experience inclusive fun for your next outing!
Do I Need Artistic Talent?
No Artistic Experience Necessary!
When we say no artistic experience necessary, we mean it!
But don’t worry, we got you! – It is not uncommon for first timers to feel a little out of their comfort zone. We have found a lot of people were told at some point growing up that they weren’t artistically talented, which left an impression – and THAT STINKS!!
Fluid Art shows us that everyone can be an artist.
We empower creativity. The most amazing aspect of our business is watching our customers begin to gain confidence and relax as they create their masterpiece. One of the most common refrains we hear as our guests leave is:
“I know exactly what I am going to do next time!”
