About Us

Welcome to The Art Cabana!  We're Mark Litzinger and Christine Paterra, a couple of people who have enjoyed being artistic all our lives.  Now we're excited to share our passion with you!

Mark taught his first art class as a seventh grader when Mrs. Curry handed over the reins to him.  He got his BA in studio art from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and spent many years in cubicles working as a graphic designer.  He prefers working at The Art Cabana!

Christine is responsible for many of the glass and craft offerings we offer at The Art Cabana.  She's also come up with quite a few popular painting offerings.  Christine keeps our calendar fresh and exciting!


Come enjoy our fun and relaxing beach-like studio and the wide variety of painting and crafting classes we offer. So, check out our calendar, grab a beverage or two, and come unwind with us. Whether it's painting or crafting, it’s a beach scene at The Art Cabana!


Frequently Asked Questions

What should I bring? 


Bring your inner-artist.  If you'd like, bring some good friends and a few tasty beverages, too.  Your class fee covers all materials needed to complete the session.

What should I wear?

There's no dress code, but most people wear casual attire.  We'll provide some aprons for painting and safety glasses for glass-working.


What is your cancellation policy?


If you provide 48 hours notice, we'll refund you in full or reschedule you in a similar workshop.  We require a week's notice for parties of 8 or more.

Can I book a party?


You bet.  Most of our private parties and kids' parties require a minimum enrollment of 8 attendees.  Glass workshop parties require a minimum of 6 attendees.

Do you offer corporate team building events?

We do, and we'll even travel to your part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, provided your company has the space to accommodate our painting workshop.  We don't travel to residences.  Also, crafts and glass workshops are conducted in-studio only.

Is The Art Cabana BYOB-friendly?
