Create Maui is an art studio providing quality art lessons, workshops, and events. Join us for one of our after-school classes, a jewelry workshop, or let us host your next ladies night or birthday party! Create Maui can also travel to your next special event to provide a memorable art experience for your guests. 



The Mission of Create Maui is to provide an environment that inspires creativity and exploration of the arts. Through quality instruction, students are exposed to new ways of seeing and creating art. Students learn fundamental techniques that nurture the development of their own personal style of visual expression. Create Maui hopes to give you a life-long love of the arts!


Create Maui began as a small dream in a garage in 2010. The goal was to create a homey, welcoming studio for children to explore the wonder and joy of art. Owner and instructor Monica Knight has been in the art education field for over 10 years. She holds a Masters Degree in Education from Azusa Pacific university, a bachelor’s degree in Art History from Brown University, and a K-12 teaching credential in Art. In Maui, she has taught and led programs at Sacred Hearts School, Kapalua Art School, the Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center, Kahului Baptist Preschool, and Smart Start Preschool. She began taking art lessons at the age of 6 in a garage art studio reminiscent of this one. 


Jan-March 2024

Art & Design

Students will learn how to use their artwork to design usable, everyday items! They will learn drawing, painting, and printmaking skills to design their own products, such as tote bags, towels, Cards, hats and stickers. They will learn how to plan out a design and transfer it to a textile and other surfaces. This is a fun, hands-on class that will show students how art is used in the marketplace and in everyday products. Each student will take home the products they design (perfect for gifts!)
