Bumble Bree Art

Bumble Bree Art Bree is an artist/instructor that offers painting classes locally in both venues and your own home. She is available for custom canvas and mural work.

Bree has been painting with acrylic paint for over two decades. Though she began as an Art Major, she loved working with people and found herself studying the art of public speaking and interpersonal communications. She received a degree in Communications from Bowling Green State University and entered the corporate realm, but the arts were never far from her heart. As she worked on her career, she also painted custom work (murals and canvases) part-time for both leisure and business. While in sales for a printing company, she gained a unique perspective on color and composition in annual reports and marketing literature. Eventually this lead to employment at the local cornerstone of the area's news - The Akron Beacon Journal. Her focus turned to developing effective advertising concepts both in the local Northeast Ohio/Akron area and across the Nation with corporate headquarters to funnel funding to small businesses. In it all was a desire to help, to teach, to serve. After having children, she worked from home as a business writer and entrepreneur – and as a result, Bumble Bree Art was born. Custom work opened doors for a teaching opportunity at J. Paris Designs, a local retail store where she teaches monthly. She now coaches people through a step-by-step process to turn blank canvas into something that reflects not only the class concept, but your personality. It’s a recipe that can be adjusted throughout class. Those that are apprehensive usually follow directions quite well and end up with something they love, and those that love to break the mold are encouraged to take advantage of pointers and tips during class. Though painting can sound daunting to some, Bree believes anyone can paint, relax and enjoy a class. You'll be warmly greeted and participate in a few hours that give you a break from our busy world. The physical nature of painting requires us to focus, be still, work on fine motor skills and accomplish something great. Moreover, painting classes are an amazing way to connect and interact with one another in a fun, judgement-free environment. Check out one of the class offerings in your area or plan your own night of painting fun. The class is portable and travels in such areas as: Akron, Stow, Cuyahoga Falls, Bath, Cleveland, Canton and surrounding vicinities. In your home: Classes are customizable based on event and include: Bachelorette Parties, Ladies' Night, Corporate Events, Birthday Parties, Couples' Night, Parents Painting with kids, Charitable Events, Just for Fun, Housewarming Events and more. At your favorite meeting place: Bree works with several venue partners and is happy to recommend them to you based on your location. In addition, she is happy to contact your favorite venue to arrange your next party if they are not already a partner.

I absolutely wanted to post this 5.4.20 for the Star Wars fans. But I hear only a Sith Lord deals in absolutes? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I had never painted a storm trooper, so I figured I’d try. But then I remembered some wise words. “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” So I grabbed a brush and some wood pallets and took more of a rustic, artsy approach. I customized them later with initials and birthdays stamped in the corner and sanded them to show the wood grain. 😁

Before that other bug came around I was working on a Highland Hornet. #muchhigherthanitlooks#muralpainting#bumblebreeart

Up, up and away!

Cutest moment in this kid + 1 class was that it happened to fall near Mother’s Day. So I invited a few children up to the front of the room to tell me what they loved about their moms. I’ve never cried in a painting class until that day! Precious. #momdate #mothersday2018 #lakeforestcountryclub #bumblebreeart #artforall

We don’t have to schedule it until after this snow is done, but one of the best ways to achieve curb appeal is to paint your front door. Might not seem like an art, but it can be! Here’s one that went from a tired light blue to a wood grain paint to copper distressing to large nail heads that are really magnets (it’s an aluminum door!) that was truly an art form. I can help you really make a statement this spring. Service only available when I can work without mittens. 🌷☀️🎨
