Ruth “Rifka” Barth teaches four No Fear Art classes at the Edmonds Senior Center: No Fear Torn Paper Mosaics, No Fear Portraits, No Fear Watercolor and No Fear Drawing. According to Barth, these classes are great for students who have always been interested in drawing and watercolor painting, but were afraid to start.

You don’t have to be a senior to join her classes.

Barth started teaching No Fear Art classes in 1997 to students in Florida. No Fear Art helps students eliminate their natural inhibitions of expressing themselves artistically. To learn more, visit Barth’s website at

  1. Do you love art but think you can’t do it? Ruth is the teacher for you! She is encouraging, gives correction kindly and has a great sense of humor. She is also unwavering in her belief that anyone (that means you) can do art. Each session is jam packed with learning. Ruth, you rock!

  2. I took Ruth’s classes in Florida years ago and for years. She is, hands down, one of the three most gifted teachers it’s ever been my good luck to trip across. In any field. I loved watching people come into the class afraid of a pencil and then take off like bottle rockets. I’d recommend going to the ends of the earth to take classes from Ruth; it’d be worth the trip. And then some.
