Kīpaipai Art Foundation was born at the tail end of 2017 as a non-profit giving support to our community, working with disabled youth and offering a place for students to access the highest level of artistic knowledge. We believe in the alchemical combination of imagination and creativity with an understanding and effective use of the vocabulary of fine art.

Our curriculum focuses on drawing and painting. Our programs, workshops and private lessons, provide a space where students can connect to the traditional techniques in a simple and clear way, while learning to approach classical realism in a new light.
