Barbara Rabkin creates colorful and joyful art in a variety of media - oils, acrylics, polymer clay, silk and fiber arts. Her work is displayed at Morton's Bakehouse, San Francisco Plaza, in Alto Boquete (open Monday-Saturday, 9-5), and by appointment at her home. Arrange for a private or group class at her art studio/gallery in downtown Boquete - silk painting (full day) and polymer clay (half day). No experience needed - just a sense of adventure. Take home a truly personal memento of your Panama visit. (Reservations in advance required.) "One of the highlights of our trip." We are located in the village one block from the Main Street, east of Delta gas station, just across from Plaza Los Establos.

I took a silk painting class with Barbara during my visit to Boquete, and am so glad that I did! It was wonderful! Her home/studio is open and breezy. She's a wonderful teacher. I learned a lot and was very happy with the end product. Would definitely recommend taking a class!!

Barbara has displays of her art at various locations around Boquete including the local library. If you are in Boquete for a longer stay you will want to sign up for one of her art classes. Great for beginners and experienced artists alike.
