NaDa Farm Sale {I will be teaching three classes this fall}

In the spring I had a wonderful time teaching a mixed media art class at the NaDa Farm Sale.

This October 7 & 8th I will be teaching again!

I am so excited to tell you that I am teaching THREE classes!

On Friday night I will be teaching (along side Jennifer Rizzo) the class, “Avenues to an Artful Business”.

There is such joy in simply creating, but there is something so fulfilling about being able share it with others as well.

Have you always wanted to find ways to let your art work shine or create paths to promote your unique creations?

-Remove the fear and take the steps you need towards being published in national magazines

-Learn about the ease and tricks for opening an on-line Etsy or Web store

-Get hints and information about what you need to open a booth in a co-op space or antique store

-Sell or consign your items wholesale to retailers

And more…..

On Saturday I will be teaching two art classes.

Vintage Art Journal Class (12-2:30)
You will take a variety of vintage elements and create a beautiful and usable art/writing journal.  You will start with a vintage book and alter it to include vintage elements that make it reflect your own personal style. Each journal will be full of vintage papers and watercolor paper.  All supplies will be provided but you are free to bring anything personal you would like to add.  You will learn how to stamp onto metals and leathers, different photo transfer processes and mixed media techniques.  You will also learn beginning art journaling techniques so you can start filling your journal with your own art.  All of my classes give clear step by step directions.  Even if you have never created art before you will leave with not only a new piece of art but the knowledge to continue your own art at home.
$58 ($50 if taken with the vintage mixed media art class)
Vintage Mixed Media Art Class 3-5:00
You will take a canvas and vintage elements to create a finished mixed media art piece.  Each piece will include vintage papers, charcoal, pencil, paint and vintage hardware.  You will learn different photo transfer processes, mixed media techniques and how to use water soluble pencils to create beautiful art.  All supplies will be provided.  You will leave with a completed vintage mixed media art piece on a door plate (escutcheon) stand.  All of my classes give clear step by step directions.  Even if you have never created art before you will leave with not only a new piece of art but the knowledge to continue your own art at home.

    I wish I was in the area. The classes sound wonderful. . . any chance there might be a transcript or e-class version of the “Artful Business” class? I would love to get started in that direction!
