About Shay Niimi Wahl

About the Instructor

To encourage art in the community, Shay offers watercolor classes in the style that has become her signature, Neo-Gongbi, a blend of the traditional Eastern gongbi (meticulous) and xieyi (spontaneous) styles with Western materials and influences. Shay’s teaching background complements her artistic talents to inspire her students to become independent artists.

Thank you for your interest in Shay’s art. If you would like to sign up for a workshop, email Shay at shaywahlarts@hawaii.rr.com. A small class size, limited to 3 or 4 students, provides for personal attention to learning.
