Welcome to ArtAbout

ArtAbout is an art concept and business based on sharing knowledge, experience and opportunities for people of all ages to create art.  Started in 1998, ArtAbout was named as the business for mural painting, teaching and calligraphy.  The idea behind the name was based off of an Australian “walkabout” 


Definition of walkabout. 1 : a short period of wandering bush life engaged in by an Australian aborigine as an occasional interruption of regular work —often used in the phrase go walkabout.


Rather than wandering out bush in the Australian Outback, at ArtAbout I invite people to experience the joyful vulnerability of creating art, together. ”...as an occasional interruption of regular work”. Classes, Art programs, Portrait and Figure drawing opportunities,  Art Camps, and my new favorite, Outdoor Art Academy. 


Beth Spieler

Artist / Enthusiast / Teacher

My name is Beth Spieler.  I'm an artist, teacher, and creator living in Winston Salem, NC.  In 1998, I began painting murals in the Washington DC area.  Working with others to bring their vision to reality is a real joy of mine.  Since moving to North Carolina in 2001, my client base has grown to include many familiar local commercial and private establishments.   


In addition to commissioned artwork, I teach several youth Art classes from my downtown Winston Salem studio, located in the AFAS building.    Empowering people through the shared creative process is so rewarding!  It's my mission to bring opportunities to practice art, tools to create art, and information to better understand art to fellow artists and the community.  


Another personal goal is to have a positive impact on the lives of young artists.  Too often, young children with a passion for creativity are stifled by those who may not know how to nurture or funnel those creative urges.  As an artist and mother, I understand the dilemma of keeping the gang entertained and educated.  Sometimes, art falls by the wayside.  For those who have the gift though, negligence could create added frustration (for both parent and child).  I'd like to help guide your child's creative understanding.  ArtAbout Classes are designed to engage your student, encourage their creativity and challenge their skill development.
