In the Artist’s Studio

Burien Arts is pleased to announce a new program in partnership with the Highline Heritage Museum: In the Artist’s Studio.

In the Artist’s Studio was envisioned as a series of workshops by local artists describing their process and technique. These were planned to be in-person at the Highline Heritage Museum, Burien.

With pandemic restrictions, we have been presenting the workshops via Zoom. The classes are videoed by Burien Arts and produced by the Highline Heritage Museum via a YouTube link.

Once inside gatherings are possible again, we will hold classes live at the Museum, 819 SW 152nd Street, Burien, WA.

Our current artist is Antonija Hasanbegovic. See her video below:

Please see videos of previous artists in the series on our Programs page.

Artist Paul Illian launched the series with a Zoom workshop on landscape painting in August 2020.  Please see the video here.

Paul gave an in-person workshop, Landscape Painting with Paul Illian, in October, 2019, at the Museum.

Featured Artist


We are pleased to feature the paintings of Antonija Hasanbegovic in the January-February 2022 exhibit at the Burien Arts Gallery Wall, Highline Heritage Museum, 819 SW 152nd Street, Burien, WA.

After 17 years as a florist, Antonija felt she needed a new creative outlet. “I have always been a creative person and I love abstract art.  Encouraged by my best friend, I picked up a brush, and began to paint–a passion that has continued to burn brightly. I see things from a different perspective, and I love to invoke emotions and thoughts in others with my paintings,” she said.

“My favorite thing is texture. I love to see various textures, to touch them–even though it’s considered taboo!…  I like creating mixtures of paint, pastes, and finishes that gives my work definition and depth,” she continued. She is self-taught.

Antonija was born in Bosnia. She and her family fled their war-torn homeland to Germany in 1992 where they lived for five years before immigrating to the US in 1997.  She currently makes her home in Tukwila.

Her works have been featured by the Artists United Club and in the ArtUp Phinneywood Art Walk in North Seattle.

The Museum is open Friday – Sunday 1:00 PM-5:00 PM. Masks and distancing are required. Admission to the Wall is free.

All works on display at the Museum are for sale. Please email burienarts@gmail.com  for information on purchasing.
