I'm teaching a workshop!

There's been quite a bit of interest in the techniques I'm using for creating my abstracts, so I'm teaching a workshop. I'm kind of new to teaching, so I could use any help you can offer for getting the word out. Here's my blurb (do you like the title?):

Painting Fabulous Textured Abstracts
(or why the hardware store is your best friend)

Do you love richness and texture in your paintings? Do you want to experiment with multimedia in a way you've never done before? This fun, lively workshop teaches you to use materials from both the art store and the hardware store to create amazing abstracts. No prior experience needed! Just bring your adventurous spirit! Expect to go home with a minimum of two (and maybe more) abstract paintings.

When: May 16 to 17, 2009, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Where: Gallery 2611, 2611 Broadway, Redwood City, 94063
Price: $130

  1. I'm excited for you. I am sure you will do a fantastic job. You have been teaching us all these month. You have shared so much of the process, that I just know it will be a snap.
    If I think of anything, about getting the word out, I will pass it along.

  2. Connie, I'm amazed at the fast progress you're making in your art career!
    Your classes sound so exciting, I wish we lived closer!
    And I like your website very much.

  3. Dori, thanks for the kind words. Also, people are a little less willing to spend right now, so it's hard to get sign-ups. I made the workshop affordable because of that.

  4. Hi Silvi. Well, I'm putting things in place (gallery, workshop), and hoping things start to take off soon. Funny how we relate to our art and audience. First it was just a hobby, then I took workshops, then started to sell a little, found a gallery, and am now offering to teach. But I can't afford the house in southern Italy just yet. :)

  5. How come all the good stuff happens in California? I wish I could come to your class! Your work is bold and energized and that would be something to pick up at a workshop, for sure.

  6. Oh my gosh, Deborah, you totally made my day! (And actually, all the good stuff seems to happen in Southern CA). :)
