You're an Artist. No really.

Actually, we all are. Let's approach a blank canvas with a playful spirit and no expectations. I lead the following two-hour abstract art workshops:

  • Playing with tools

  • Earrings and necklaces

  • Contrasts and composition

  • Abstract art greeting cards

  • Collages

  • Aprons, pillow and bags

  • Garden sculptures

I lead small groups of 8-10 people in fun sessions for artists of all skill levels. Bring your group or join one!  Please contact me below for more information. 

Here are a couple of testimonials from recent workshop participants:

“Bettina’s warm, encouraging style put everyone in our group at ease—even those who had no art experience. She offers a safe space to be creative and have fun! Can’t wait to do another workshop with her.” Judy Galliher

"We had a wonderful time at Bettina’s workshop. My team and I learned amazing abstract color techniques while enjoying delicious snacks and drinks. Each of us created beautiful painting using different tools and we talked about what challenges and discoveries we had while doing painting. It was wonderful way to hang out together in a really warm cosy comfortable atmosphere and design incredible pieces of art individually and as a team. Bettina had a really awesome idea to decorate personalized Christmas ornaments since this was a Christmas 2021 party . The whole experience was great! We all truly enjoyed it ! I would absolutely recommend to all my friends and family! Thank you, again!"  Kate Noda
