Why you want to book your ART workshops EARLY...

  1. To ensure you have a spot reserved - and to recruit your painting buddies to attend too!
  2. To make a commitment to yourself to PAINT - and block out time on your calendar!
  3. Many organizers have to decide as far as 30 days in advance if they have enough reservations -- or if they need to CANCEL.  Book your spot EARLY!
  4. So YOUR materials packet from the presenter can be prepared
  5. To secure your lodging and transportation
  6. So you can prepare and gather inspiration, materials, and supplies
  7. To have enough time to research the presenter’s style
  8. So the organizer can prepare for your comfort and optimum learning environment

April into May 2017 - Art Residency in Ireland - several weeks of painting in Ireland at a new studio in Ballyferriter on the Dingle Peninsula County Kerry.  I will once again create an original print for International "Print Day in May" on the first Saturday in May 2017.  This is a world-wide event in which printmakers from ALL continents dedicate their creativity in a 24 hour cycle to celebrating the power of creating original prints by hand.  It is my honor to represent both Michigan and Ireland and promote one of my favorite art forms.
