Announcing Mixed Media Boot Camp – Local Connecticut / Week Day Workshops

I've gotten a lot of requests for local workshops lately.  I hear you… and I've put out e-mails to a couple of stores within driving distance of my home for the near future.  Hopefully I will have a smattering of Saturday workshops to offer to you very soon!

This just in: Saturday, November 12th at The Inspiration Station in Stafford Springs, CT! details will be posted shortly!

And in the meanwhile, I started thinking about the second kind of request I'm getting… from folks for whom a Saturday is NOT an option.  And for whom the school bus tolls too.  So an idea was born:


So in addition to the store settings on weekends, I'm setting up a schedule for boot camp-style, technique-focused workshops here at my home in Newtown, Connecticut.

These will be on a Tuesday or a Thursday, from 10:00am to 1:30pm.  Just enough time to get up and going in the morning, or travel a short distance to get here.  Enough time to get home to meet the bus, or have just a smidgeon of babysitter time.

Limited to SIX people only per session.  Keep it small and focused so everybody gets the MOST out of the sessions. 

Only $25.00, pre-paid to secure your spot.

So you get 3 1/2 hours of IMMERSION into a medium.  No, not the crystal ball kind!  Works for me. I hope it works for you too!

Here is a preliminary list of topics, by medium:

  • Copic Boot Camp: includes 'What? How? and Wow!' and Intermediate Coloring Challenges
  • Acrylic Paints: Mixed, Tinted, Shady and Washed Up.  Paint techniques demystified.
  • Paint like a Mermaid: Let's start the waterworks! Including dye-based mediums like Glimmer Mist, watercolor crayons and gelatos.
  • Encaustic Wax: All Hot and No Bother! We'll melt and paint and embed schtuff.

And here are my available dates:

  • Tuesday, October 18th
  • Tuesday, October 25th
  • Thursday, October 27th

So let's talk!… get a group of friends together.  Come by yourself.  I'll give you quick results in a fast-paced training session that will get you pumped up and past any barriers that have kept you from feeling confident with these mediums.
