Katharines' Smart Art
Paint Nite with a "TWIST"

Smart Art Event Hosts


Katharine's formal training includes the Vancouver School of Art, Banff School of Fine Arts, and the Peter Aspell School of Abstract Design. Her teaching credentials, among others, include Bob Ross Landscape, Bob Ross Wildlife and Bob Ross Floral. Over the years Katharine has taught students of all skill levels and from all walks of life.
While raising six children, she went to school with them every day and taught art classes. For thirteen years Katharine was the Artistic Director for her children’s elementary school, kindergarten to grade 7. Her love of teaching has developed into a mission: to populate the planet with as many painters as possible.

"Painting is a process that takes us inward, it is the safest way to leave the planet. When you walk into a class in progress you can literally feel the creativity and it is contagious."
