About Artbeat

Hello to those kicking the art tire...Artbeat Activities is a locally run, personally owned business by artist/educator Sue Hanlon. I am based out of Sparwood, BC and have a bachelor of Arts and Science / Bed. degree with over 30 years of teaching experience.  My children have left the nest and I find myself at a crossroads.  Do I hide away in my art studio and create all by myself (I know many would LOVE that idea...) or do I go public with it and share what knowedge I have with others. I enjoy creating art but really like to share in the enthusiasm of creating with others. So many don't take the time or think they can create an artpiece of interest and skill.  But I believe that there is creativitiy in all of us and with a little instruction, encouragment and a fun social atmosphere , we can make our "Art beat" again in the presence of good friends.  So the premiss behind Artbeat Activities is to create an environment and an activity where we can create Fun vs. Fine art, in a social setting.  So let that inner artist out to play again (regardless of your pre-concieved abilities.)

“I didn't know there was an artist inside of me!  When is the next paint class?"

"I haven't picked up a paint brush in 20 years.  This was so much fun, I'm going to go home and resurrect my brushes!"

Comments heard at the end of Paint nights. 


"Sue, I wanted to let you know I attended another Paint Night in another town and it was good but did not compare to yours!  You deliver a quality, fun and memorable experience.  I would highly recommend your services!

"Thank you so much for the parent/child paint date.  Kylie and I had a great time and you are an awesome teacher. I walked in there thinking I would not leave there with a wall worthy picture and because of your teaching we both left there with a perfect wall worthy picture and we had a great time doing it."

Cora and Kylie Goulet

"We painters are actually magicians with colour!"
