Art Boutique, Workshops & Inspiration!

A Note From Christine
"And Then Some" Inspiration.....

I have finally got the workshop information from all my guest artists through the end of June!
I will be working on updating the website with Keith Lo Bue, Richard Salley, Jane Wynn & Thomas Ashman's workshop descriptions, pricing and registration details this weekend.
An email will go out when that is all posted!
Plus, I will get all the Art Challenges for the year posted as well!
I had an awesome suggestion for an Art Challenge on "Change" since this is the year of Change, for me personally and for our country with a new leader! Yeah!

Get your ideas flowing..... The Art Challenges' Themes for this Year will be:
1) Change
2) Book Arts
3) Recycled Art
4) Altered Bras for Breast Cancer Awareness Month For Inspiration...

My new Post on my "Life's Passion" Blog is
"And Then Some"

NOTE: this blog has a new address, bookmark this:

"And then some" is about giving more than what is expected. This has been the core of my business and life.
I want to reach out to people whenever I can.
I love people and they make me who I am!

I have taken workshops with Jacqueline in Phoenix a few years ago. Her workshops are "top notch"!
She really shows the "And then Some" attitude.
Sharing with you many techniques while creating a project.
And her hand out booklet is sooo complete with color pictures!
She is a nuturing soul, who you will learn so much from her and be inspired!

Jacqueline's Bio:
Jacqueline has a degree in graphic design and worked for many years as an advertising and publication designer. She also has studied Calligraphy and Lettering Arts.
In her classes, Jacqueline emphasizes experimentation. Jacqueline loves teaching and inspiring creativity in others. She has taught many classes at Art Centers and Colleges in her home state of Michigan and teaches workshops for Art and Calligraphy Guilds and the top Art Retreats throughout the U.S. and Canada.

In her mission to provide her students with lasting information, Jacqueline provides them with extensive documentation in the form of well-designed hand outs.
Many of these handouts are coil bound into a book with either color photos or tipped in samples. (See I told you!)

That is all for now!
