Upcoming events, workshops, and more…
I've been taking watercolor classes with Betsy for the past 10 years. Her classes are fun and relaxed, excellent for both beginner and more advanced students, with a focus on painting landscapes, florals and still life. Betsy is encouraging and patient while guiding her students to develop their own style. Her gallery offers local guest artists a chance to have solo exhibits, and she mentors a sub-group of her students, Cross River Fine Artists, who display their work in her gallery and in other venues in the Hudson Valley.
A wonderful place to learn how to paint in watercolor. Betsy and all her staff and students are a very warm and inviting group. Non judgment!
All you have to do is open the door and see the colorful atmosphere.
Betsy is a patient and kind teacher to all levels of students. She is an exemplar teacher in the Mid-Hudson valley and possibly in the country. Her studio is perfect for the beginner, intermediate or advanced watercolorist. I have been attending classes for almost five years and it is my true happy place on this earth. I find it to be my yoga, my therapy and my place to be free, to experiment, to create. I have brought 20 8th grade students from my school and Betsy was amazing working with young painters. The kids just loved the day!
