Saturday, January 19th - Art Marketing Workshop

You could be the best artist in the world, but if no one knows about you and never sees what you create, it’s going to be very difficult to succeed.  This workshop is for current artists or new artists that need to know about different avenues to venture into. The good and the bad(ish). Learn where to start or how to get where you’re going . . . Don’t know where you’re going? Join the crowd LOL. This workshop will give you inside information on galleries, publishing, licensing, working with designers, art festivals, retail & wholesale, charities, television, and more! Bring a notepad and questions! Outline will be given.

Thursday, January 24th - Art Kit Painting Party! Paint the Regal Peacock!

This is a FIRST TIME fun class where you receive my Peacock Painting Kit including an 11 x 14 canvas with the image pre-printed on it, paints, brushes, instructions and tips - all for you to keep! Although written instructions are in the kit, I will be walking you through how to create your own fantastic painting! You get to take the canvas, paints, brushes and written instructions home with you. . . not me, though! And who wouldn’t want to take a non-screeching peacock home (no feather shedding either)?
