Check Out How Much Fun We Have…

Let’s turn the gallery space into a fun, lively classroom, where we offer art instruction and guidance in a variety of projects and media.  No art experience required, our classes are designed for the absolute beginner and will challenge seasoned artists to come make art in a stress free environment. Our goal is that at the end of the night you leave with new friends and a fabulous work of art ready to take home to display.

Just show up and we do the rest… the sessions are generally 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and are intended to allow you the opportunity to create a unique work of art, and have a blast doing it!  Average cost is $50 per person, which includes all of your materials and delicious refreshments.

  • About Beata

Beata Ondikova Metzelaar is creator of Beba’s Brush.

Beata was born in the former Czechoslovakia and her artistic talent was discovered at a very young age. She ultimately graduated from art school, specializing in fine art and art restoration. dsc_0648 (3)_2Having studied restoration, Beáta has developed a truly unique ability to understand how the masters created their works, and she applies similar techniques to her own. Heavily influenced by her native Eastern Europe, the use of color and texture are woven into her versatile style.
Beáta came to the United States in 1990, and worked for many years as a textile designer and artist in Los Angeles before coming to Seattle. Her passion for art and creativity, combined with an unparalleled vision for color and design, gives her the versatility to create pieces of many different styles and media. I am inspired by life as a child and young adult growing up in a very different part of the world. It taught me how to see the world very broadly today, and I want to capture it all! I hope to bring calm imagery from my life, and evoke the senses with color and texture.

My Statement
Life is to be lived, cherished and loved, enriched by simple experiences. 

“Life is short, art is long…”
