Take a good inventory of your art supplies to see what you already have before you go shopping for your summer workshops.

Find a time in your schedule for browsing through your workshop videos before you get started on your projects. This is why we present your classroom videos to you in their entirely starting on the first day of class. If you view everything first, you will have a good sense of your instructor's style and direction. You can come back and view your videos over and over again as many times as you like before class ends. Make notes, and ask your instructor questions while you have him/her to chat with in your classroom.

Have fun and enjoy participating. We have a ton of prizes to giveaway! We want your experience to not only be fun and creative, but memorable too. Participating with us is fun and it never includes spamming. If you hear from us at all, it is so we can keep you updated on our event announcements or, because you won a prize.


 2017 Event Itinerary

So Glad You Are Here

It is so exciting to browse through our list of summer workshops just to get an idea of the wide assortment of classes we have to present to you this year.

We love to present you with the opportunity to take your workshops with well-known and established artists who have a unique and varied diversity of skills and experience. This way, you can take many different classes with us over the summer without repeating similar projects. In just one summer, you can explore everything from jewelry making to textile art, encaustic art to watercolor! Don’t be afraid to spread your wings and try something new.
