Victoria Beckert has studied many different art mediums but has a passion for watercolors. They are fun and everyone has the ability to paint! She has shown her work, locally, at the BAFFA Art Gallery, Islip Arts Council, Patchogue Art Space, Art League of Long Island and the Stony Brook Long Island Museum and Bayard Cutting Arboretum. Victoria is going on her 5th year painting “Palettes in the Park” at Bayard Cutting Arboretum and has introduced other artist instructors to give workshops there as well. She is a member of various art groups such as Islip Arts Council, Wet Paints Studio Group, East End Arts Council & Women Sharing Art. Victoria has donated her artwork, “Musical Notes”, to the Islip Arts Council for use in their publicity for their annual Jazz Festival and artwork for a poster for LI2Day Walk for Breast Cancer. Last year her work was selected by Suffolk County Community College for “Embracing Our Differences” banner. She is on the Board of Directors of Women Sharing Art, Inc. a not-for-profit group of women artists who give annual student scholarships to upcoming young artists from our local schools. Victoria teaches watercolor in workshops held throughout Long Island and in her home studio.
