Hanna Kilburn & Art Haven
My name is Hannah Kilburn. I am a graduate from Nipissing University’s Bachelor of Fine Arts Program and have been practicing art since I can remember. I began working at Art Haven in September of 2020 as an Art Instructor, then took over the role of Program coordinator in August of 2021. I am passionate about art in all its forms, and am grateful for the opportunity to share my passion with others who wish to expand their practice of art and learn new techniques.
Art Haven is a ceramic painting studio and bubble tea cafe. Art Haven opened its doors at its Barrhaven location in 2016, and added a second location in Kanata in 2019. We have a focus on fun and creativity, and encourage all of our guests to push the boundaries of their imagination. We host a variety of workshops and programs for children and adults of all skill levels, including introductory clay workshops, canvas painting and more. We also provide a venue for a variety of events such as birthday parties, team building workshops and bridal showers. In the future, we hope to keep expanding our little family and working with local artists and creators to continue to foster a love for art and community.
