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.
