À La Carte Projects

(click any image to enlarge)

Anyone can play and be creative! Yes, I mean ANYONE, and these are projects you can make with me at Art À La Carte with Bella parties.

You don’t need to know how to paint or draw and…you won’t be trying to make the exact, same object or painting as me or anyone else for that matter.  So, no worries—there’s no better or worse, right or wrong. Just play, have fun and let go to create one of these cool projects.


Yes, you can create a one-of-a-kind fabric canvas mosaic to hang on your wall  in whatever color, pattern and style you like. Let the juices flow while looking through Bella’s vast stash of vibrant fabrics to make your special art pop.

Wool Vases

Use hand-spun and dyed wool from Vermont sheep and alpaca farmers to create one-of-a-kind practical and unusual vases.  Wait until you see how many awesome fibers you get to play with! Match the vase color to the flowers you’ll buy when you leave with this special vessel.


Check out Lisa’s smile as she holds her new fiber creation! After her first À La Carte event, she wanted to book a party for a reunion so that friends could take home a memento to remind them of their special time together.



Make these canvas wall hanging tapestries using a wide variety of cool paint colors and lots of designs to choose from. Top it off by adding a unique touch of fiber and voila—a beautiful wall hanging!


Imagine how you will feel when friends and family love a silk scarf or pillow you create by Batik, an ancient arts and craft technique that applies wax and paint. Create these rewarding and beautifully original and functional pieces that you can be proud of.

The pillow creates original charm on Bella’s couch!

Handmade Cards

Learn how to create your own original cards so that you can take home a special creation to write a note, invitation, birthday or holiday card. It’s always nice to receive something personally created in the mail.

"For many  years I have spent weeks with Bella making our own creations—she is one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. Her creativity is amazing and spreads through the people she is with. She is funny and kind and one of the best people you will work with. Her artwork expresses her spunky, fun, enthusiastic personality. I highly recommend taking this class—you will benefit from it greatly!"
