Kathryn Bevier ArtWorks offers a variety of art classes that focus on learning core principles in an environment where people feel inspired and motivated to discover untapped creativity. Learn from my years of experience in working with wax using the encaustic technique, incorporating oil paint with cold wax, and teaching pastel en plein air.
I have been taking lessons from Beth for a few years now and really enjoy the experience. Although they are "group lessons" ( usually 2-4 students in a group) Beth finds time to individualize the instruction for each of us. I work in acrylics, another student prefers oils, someone else is doing a fabric collage and another uses colored pencils. Also, our ages range from teenagers to senior citizens in the class and that makes it fun. Beth is able to instruct in all the media and often includes some art history in the course of the lessons, explaining how the "old masters" worked as well as more modern artists. She is flexible in scheduling the classes and keeps in close touch by email.

For over 25 years I have been teaching painting workshops in the US and overseas. My trips are all-inclusive, except for airfare. I have taught in such locations as Provence, France, Tuscany, Italy, Greece, Ireland, Hilton Head, SC, Santa Fe, NM, and many more. My students (adults) enjoy using the medium of their choice, with daily instruction in various aspects of art. We travel to different locations each day, while retaining the same accommodation each night. I have been named in Who's Who in American Art, and have received numerous national awards for my work. I teach at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, and at the studio school of the Memorial Art Gallery in the same city. I hold BFA, with additional study at Yale University.

Jennifer was wonderful with the children. The kids had a blast and her face painting was beautiful(and at bedtime it came off easily)! The theme was ninjas, Jennifer had a lot of choices for the theme as well as other choices for the kids! Highly recommend.
Shae has helped me with several projects over the years. She's full of fresh ideas, she's resourceful, and such a pleasure to work with. I have her artwork in my office, she made the curtains for my daughter's bedroom, she has helped me arrange furniture and choose paint colors for various rooms in my house. Shae is generous with her time and talent, always making sure the job meets (and it usually exceeds) expectations.
