“The Judi Betts Workshop is more than educational, its entertaining!  Judi’s techniques can be applied with a seasoned painter that draws well or a novice just starting out!
As an artist I have used her techniques and incorporated them into mine and loved the results.  Judi is a great teacher and willing to work one on one!
While taking this amazing course the accommodations are amazing as well!!!  It is a large, airconditioned well-lit room and makes painting perfect!  Judi’s quips and stories makes learning conditions perfect.
Three delicious meals are enjoyed daily and end of the day sunsets are superb.  I have taken twice and I can say each time I learned and enjoyed the ranch experience.”  Jean Lewis
“This is more like a retreat; painting, fellowship, eating and having a great time with Judi, a wonderful artist.”  Jackie Railsback

 “404 Ranch”

The ranch house was recently remodeled inside and out and a 30’x30′ attached studio added, which is where the workshop will be conducted.
This is a working ranch but, as you can see from the pictures below, this is not your run-of-the-mill ranch house.
