Hello! My name is Tabetha and I'm the owner/operator/teacher at Landt Creative Space. I quit my full-time job in 2009 to pursue a career in art. I knew it was the worst possible economy to do such a thing, but...I also knew that if I didn't do it then, I never would. A year later I was still working part time helping out at my old job, and not selling enough art to make ends meet. I had to face the fact that I may have to give up my art studio, and this made me sad beyond words. So I racked my brain for different ways to use my studio and bring some money in.
People had suggested that I teach for several years prior, so I thought... why not? I opened the doors to Painting Soiree on Santa Fe (now Landt Creative Space) in September 2010.
Although it started out as a way to keep my studio, it has turned into a passion. I love teaching! And people have really responded well to my classes. My favorite thing is having people leave my studio proud of their work, having had little or no prior painting experience. "I had no idea I could do that!" is one of my favorite comments.
Over the years Painting Soiree has morphed to include Freestyle Studio Sessions (paint what you want!), creativity classes and painting technique classes. I'm looking forward to expanding to include more abstract painting classes, offsite workshops, painting camps, and impulse painting. I do hope you'll join me!
It wasn't exactly what I'm looking for but pretty fun nonetheless

I had a lot of fun. No experience is necessary. The class was creative and relaxing. I'm looking forward to my next class.
Organized, exciting & just the right length of time.
I really enjoyed this class! Tabitha gave good & complete instruction and was well prepared with all the supplies needed!
Skilled in painting or beginners will like this acrylic pour class which was demonstrated & instructed by a patient and thoughtful instructor. Thanks for teaching this easy & appreciated method. Beautiful results were enjoyed by all.
