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
