It's that time again, time to post a handful of random updates. As usual there are lots of things going on over here and before I forget I want to mention a few :)

I am excited to have an article in the latest Stitch magazine.



INSPIRED ARTISTS

Just a reminder that I will be teaching at Donna Downey's Inspired Artist Workshop in Concord/Charlotte, NC- May 11-14th!!! The four day event is jam packed with six amazing teachers, workshops, mini workshops, events and the opportunity to challenge, grow and expand your creativity. Visit Donna's site for all the info

As I have mentioned, I am hard at work designing, collaborating and creating new work (with my mom) for my new website and shop! I was hoping that it would be ready to go live by the end of March but because I am doing everything myself (photography, web design, etc) it is looking like April will be more realistic but I will keep you all updated and continue to give you little peeks at things that I have coming.

Recently I have received a lot of inquiries about how access works for my most recent class Sketchbook Delight that I wanted to answer here-

All of my classes have unlimited access- once you register you can create and access at any time and work at your own pace. Whenever I "release" a new class- like the recent Sketchbook Delight- I always structure it in a five week format. Many people who want to work in this format, as the lessons are posted each week, enjoy working at this pace but once the five weeks are up there is unlimited time to access everything.


I have found that some people prefer to work along with the five week format when I release the class while others will wait months until they have the time, money and the schedule to register for the class. Either way works- just know that once you are in- there is no deadline or pressure to create :)

You are one busy gal, Alisa! I can vouch for your Sketchbook Delight class....simply amazing and it encouraged me back to my sketchbooks! Thank YOU!

I was so impressed that I also signed up for the 'Colour Your World' class on Friday and eagerly await my invite to the private workshop lessons.

Your work is beautiful and inspiring!

Cheers from DownUnder,
Serena :)

Wow, this is to much! It looks great.

Jodi Ohl said...

Great news on EVERYTHING!! You've been a busy girl! Glad you are doing the Sketchbook class open ended, I wanted to take that class but couldn't at the time you released it. Thanks for all the extra info and peek inside the studio. I always enjoy seeing what you are up to :))

Stephanie said...

whew - LOTS going on. Congrats!

PrairieJill said...

Ooh - I can't wait to see your new online classes! I've already taken several of your classes and they're great. (Hope there's going to be some more sketching in there.)

I concur with what Kitty said above: are you even sleeping?

This is all so awesome! I am so pleased for you and glad to see that all your hard work is paying off for you. I've been reading your archives these past few days and know all too well the frustration of struggling to get somewhere that you have been through. You story gives me the hope and inspiration I need to keep going myself.

I've been meaning for just such a slot in my schedule to sign up for one/two of your classes and have decided that I need to do them now rather than later so as to work through this low point. Look out for my application/registration very, very soon :)
