New Workshops and other Announcements!

 As many of you know,  Create Mixed Media Retreats has decided to 'retire' their mixed media retreat offerings going forward which really breaks my heart along with many of my fellow instructors and all of our students.   In addition, due to a scheduling conflict and a change on the teacher line up on the East Coast,  I will not be teaching at Art Is You retreats in 2015... but with that said, I am happy to announce a variety of my workshops you can attend at several of our favorite shops and galleries locally and around the country.   I will also be offering some fantastic new online classes,  projects, and full 'extreme' courses in 2015.  Stay tuned for some exciting announcements. We are sad some doors have closed, but we are excited to see what  new and amazing opportunities the future holds.

 You can also sign up for my newsletter  to keep informed on the latest classes,   to read reviews of cool products, and be the first to see new work revealed as this next chapter of my artistic career unfolds.

Jerry's Artarama:  Raleigh, NC

Sunday, March 8th

I'm excited to be back teaching at Jerry's Artarama in Raleigh, NC.  I've had tons of people ask me if I would be teaching locally again and low and behold--we made it happen!  I'll be at Jerry's for 2 different dates in the early Spring, 2015.  First up:

Angelic Inspirations-a short 3 hour course jam packed with techniques during this workshop as we compose whimsical and inspirational Angels.

If you've been a fan of my work for awhile, you'll know that creating funky little city (or beach) scapes are some of my favorite themes for compositions.  This course is much much more than just a few doodles on canvas,  you'll walk away with a plethora of techniques on how to use layers of acrylic paints combined with drawing medium all the while letting your imagination run wild in a child like manner (deceptively child like as the depth of these paintings will go as deep as you wish them to but still be fun and loose)!  One day only at Jerry's: April 18th.
$120.00   Register Here!

ReMe (3 all inclusive events on Ocracoke Island).
This is much more than just a workshop. In the words of one of our recent students, we have put "Retreat' back into a retreat!     Join us for our experience at the end of April, May or cozy up with us in October.   Spaces are limited to 8 students for each event with the workshops so don't delay, register today.  We are offering flexible payment plans including monthly payment options!

Stay tuned for this page to be updated in the coming weeks and months with more wonderful opportunities to learn how to infuse creativity into your life,  sharpen your artistic painting/drawing/collage skills, and simply live a life that is well balanced and full of positivity!

Perhaps you'd like a custom painting, such as this funky town above with your street name/number or family name on it? I'd love to do commission pieces!
