Updates, Shout Outs and a Give Away!

After lots of planning and research, I have decided that I will now be offering a variety of online classes each month that you will see in the left hand column of my blog.   My goal is to offer a variety of class topics, lengths of class time and prices to accommodate schedules and budgets. The class section will get updated and I will be making announcements on my blog so please stay tuned.  In a crazy economy where many people are choosing to forego travel and spending lots of money, I am passionate about offering alternatives for those who still want to take art classes!  If you have any requests or suggestions for classes, please send them my way!

 I also wanted to share some fun links with examples of student work from the first week- I am beyond thrilled, excited and inspired by the positive response to my first online class and though we are only into the 2nd week, so far everyone seems to be going WILD and having fun- just what I like!

Karen wrote a lovely post about her first week creations!

Hi Alisa, thought I'd drop by and let ya know that even though I'm not taking your on-line class right now -i got out the July/August 2007 issue of CPS and am going through your article. It was real hard to just leave the first coat of paint to dry. I'm so use to continuing to the next step and then walking away to let it dry a bit. I will sometimes go to the hardware store and see what they have in mismixed acrylic(they let it go at a reduced price). For the bottom layer I used an exterior acrylic that is some where between Orche and Butterscotch mixed in places with a cream color with a light peach hue(this one put into a plastic hair color bottle) and for fun I poured on a little bit of imitation vanila flavor in places. The next color to go on was a manganese blue(using a big half flower foam stamp) and than I diluted a licorice black with water to go over that. brought back the cream color and than a bright orange. That pretty much ends steps two and three of your article. Happy happies. Joyce

Thanks so much for the mention.

I have been having a great time with your class. What a challenge for a "traditional" painter! You may have started something that I can't stop. I have been cruising for more online classes :-)
