Pop-up Class at the studio

This poor little blog hasn’t had any attention lately, sorry for that. In the “something is better than nothing” category I thought I’d share this flyer about a class that was just scheduled in the studio. This was a project I just did for my own pleasure and landscaping but it caught attention and requests were made, you never know where things will lead! Anyhow, feel free to join in but register soon, we’re down to two openings already!

NOTE: This class has been moved to THURSDAY, August 3rd – same time/details!!

Upcoming Open Studio Play Day!

This year I am doing something a little different! Instead of scheduling formal classes I am going to open my studio for a “play date” every  few months (sessions will normally be on the third Thursday of the month, followed by a session the next Saturday for those that need a weekend option). Topics will change each month and all will be fun & easy and each only $10 per person to cover the material and supplies.

For September the studio is open for play on Thursday, September 8th from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. as well as Saturday, September 10th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. I’ll be working on preparing some new pieces for the show that opens later that month so materials will be out to paint rocks, create pieces on wood or sticks or just paint – whatever sounds like fun to you! Please reserve your 2-3 hour times slot as your schedule allows, I’ve got room for 3 or 4 people to work comfortably at the same time. The cost is $10. Visit the Online Reservation Form to sign up.

Your entire $10 fee will be donated to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America (HDSA) to promote education about, and research for, Huntington’s Disease. Many describe the symptoms of HD as having ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s – simultaneously. There is no cure. We have two family members currently battling this deadly disease. I will be participating in walks in Indiana this September (for our son) and Knoxville, Tennessee in October (for our grandson).

I hope you are able to come out and play on one of these dates and help me raise money for HD at the same time!

Coloring Book Updates

It seems like a long time ago when I first posted about a project I was working on that would become my first color book. I found out last week that it is now available for pre-sale on Amazon, at a $2 discount! Click on the image below to go directly to the book page on Amazon:

Although it says the publication date is February 2016 I’ve been told by my publisher that it should be released within the next two months. I’m excited! I’m working with a gallery to perhaps have a weekend event with a related class or two available as well as a “book signing” party. Details will be announced as they become available.

In the meantime I’ve already started drawings for a second book! Details on that later. 🙂

Happy coloring!

New Class! Batik Art on Paper

Here are the details about a new class I’m going to present here in the studio. Both sessions are the same, just giving people more options to fit in their schedule. I’ve been exploring this technique for several months now and feel like I am prepared to help YOU explore it as well! I hope you can join me.

Creatively,

Lynne

Final Art Auction Items up for grabs!

Instead of just giving you a preview this evening I’m letting you know that the last of the new items have been added and are available for bid during the last 24 hours of the fundraising art auction! With many people traveling for the Easter weekend it gives you a bit longer to get your bids in before you leave and, I won’t have to worry about getting it online and active in the morning either. 🙂

A few of the new items were featured in advertising, so if you’ve been looking for them here they are! Additionally there is a class for two, a class for TWELVE and a portrait photo shoot up for bid.

Now, a request. The last few days the bids have been dwindling. I know you are probably getting tired of reading and hearing about it but I really, really need your help in sharing this info so we can raise as much money as possible these last 24 hours! It doesn’t take long to click “share”, write a quick e-mail or tweet about it so help as much as you can. Thank you~

Lynne

P.S. If you hadn’t heard yet we received a $200 donation to be applied to this lovely piece of art (that was generously donated by artist Doug Arnholter) – making this an even better opportunity for you to own this piece of art!

Wednesday Auction Preview

I so, so, SO appreciate everyone bidding, sharing and promoting this event! So before I share what’s coming Wednesday I just wanted to give you all a big THANK YOU! That being said…I’m going to ask for more. More bids, more sharing, more positive vibes, whatever you’ve got. Three more days left to make a big impact on a family in need. So I’ve got some special deals for Wednesday. If you’ve not noticed the last two days had a “theme” of sorts, shadow box art class & shadow box art on Monday followed by a rock painting class and digital art created using textures of rocks. Today’s preview is no different! If you know me and my art, you’d have to expected a Mandala themed day!

Class for TWO - Intro to Mandala Art $70 value
