Mixed media painting workshops with Jeanne Krabbendam


When workshops are again possible, I will post information on the schedule. But in the meantime, play Artropology!

Artropology is a creative painting game for young and old. For groups and individuals, at the studio, in your living room or online. Play the game to learn the different Elements of Art, or to inspire yourself in your painting process. Throw the dice, pick a card and follow the prompts. Have fun, surprise yourself, think out of the box: Artropology is your game

For $ 50 (plus 5% GST) it is yours
Pick one up at the studio or have it shipped (worldwide) to your front door.
Just connect with me and I will make it ready for you! / 604 358 6965

Artropology - art game, rolle the dice and go!

Some comments from participants in Jeanne’s workshops:

“Inspiring information in a safe environment for creation!”

“Amazing workshop! Thank you for the great experience. My first time painting since high school (many decades ago).”


“My intention was to just let the creative spirit take over – thank you for encouraging me to play and play some more! A wonderful, stimulating workshop!”

“I am not a very ‘artsy’ person, but the ideas you give us make me feel ‘artsy’. You are very inspirational and not just in the way you explain things! You’ve inspired me to continue painting and explore new techniques.”

“I’ve learned so much and actually created something cool that I am proud of (pretty good for someone who can only draw stick people! All the info is clear and your input was very constructive and easy to follow!”

“It was such a fun and informative weekend: food for the soul. Loved it!” “This was the best class I have ever taken and it’s because of a combination of factors: the beautiful location, the positive attitude and high level of commitment of all participants, the materials available, the wonderful enthusiastic, warm, talented instructor, to name a few, Thank you!”


“I’ve been waiting for this course for 6 years!”

“Can’t wait to redo some of my work. You have inspired and supported us to try all these great techniques.”
