Create your own personalized island style art

infused with the tropical vibe!


Come relax with beachcombin’ artist Randy “Chongolio” Bain and enjoy a fun, artistic expression session using Hawaiian inspired themes, icons and found objects.

In the workshops we ‘ll make a totally awesome embellished driftwood “Wish Stick” and create unique eye poppin’ postcards while we tap into the creative power of the inner artist!

After an hour spent makin’ art and talkin’ story you will have…

• Made a nifty handmande memento to take home.

• Learned some art tricks that you can use anywhere.

• Gained the skills to make cool gifts for any occasion.

All workshops are keiki (children) and ohana (family) friendly and  a blast for Kane (men), Wahines (women) and folks of all ages.

Currently I am offering the following 1 hour workshops:

Together we will make a Wish “Makemake” Stick using local driftwood, acrylic paint, decoupage  and embellished with a marble to catch the sun and other found objects.

I will supply everything needed to create your own personalized memento from paradise to remind you of whatever wish or dream that you imbue into your creation.

Postcard Workshop $15

In this workshop we will make an original personalized post card using acrylic paint techniques, decoupaged paper and other cutout materials with Hawaiian and island style images and icons.

  • I had a blast in Chongo’s workshop. He’s fun to create with and a great teacher!
    With just a few of his simple tips & techniques, you’ll be surprised at the art you can make:)

  • Chongolio is very outgoing and fun to talk to. He has a personality that I can see getting on with all ages.
    My boyfriend and I made wishsticks. I can honestly say that he really enjoyed it too! We both dug right in &, with Chongolio’s guidance, we’re both very happy with the meaning, creative effort and final artwork we made.
    We’re going back to Seattle tomorrow but we have a memory with a local and a piece of our own creation to take back with us. His artwork, which is very fun, is up at Java Kai in Kapaa. I love one with a turtle going out to surf and a little turtle catching a ride on his board.
    Have a lark and spend time with Chongolio!

    • The pleasure was all mine Julie! I had a fun time too and it was very nice to have met you and Alex. Thanks for the nice comment about the workshop and my art. I appreciate it!
