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 Jody Romero. 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.

“Helena Rogers and Paul Illian are professional artists who volunteer their time and talent in support of Burien Arts,” BAA president Grace Stiller said. “Helena and Paul both could have received either award since both volunteer and are excellent fine arts painters. We like to honor them and acknowledge their commitment.”
The awards will be presented each year to an Artist and Volunteer of the Year.
The trophies are from Burien Trophy.

Jody is a self-taught mandala artist. Working primarily in ink and colored pencil on watercolor paper, her patience and passion for detail create pieces ranging in size from four inches to three feet square. One drawing can take from 10-100 hours to complete.
Inspired by the precision in geometry and organic shapes in nature, Jody seeks to create a sense of balance, harmony, and movement in every drawing. She aims to have the viewer notice something new each time he/she looks at a piece, whether for the first time or the hundredth.
She has been drawing since childhood and has focused on mandalas since 2016.
A native of Mountlake Terrace, Jody currently lives in Everett.
For more on Jody’s work and process, see her Instagram account @random_uniformity and her Etsy shop, Random Uniformity.
All works on display at the Museum are for sale. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on purchasing.
