Betsy Mitten Studio


​Hands-on classes for kids and families that connect art, science, and math. 

Sketch a live sloth and then give him a pat, see the magic of indigo oxidation as you dye a shibori silk scarf, paint collage papers with brilliant acrylics, stitch a marbleized paper book, and learn drawing techniques for self portraits.  

You value creative experiences for your children. I understand! I've been teaching art for over twenty years and have the expertise, education, and experience to bring innovative art classes with science, math, and language connections to schools, libraries, museum programming, and teacher trainings. 

It's all hands-on with a process focus and designed to help your child develop their own creative voice. I provide the lessons, high quality art materials, set-up, and clean-up.  

Classes and workshops for observational drawing, collage, bookmaking, textiles, sculpture, painting, printmaking and tinkering!

New tinkering classes get your child designing and building paper circuits that light up a drawing or a crank shaft automata to explore engineering.
