Mark your calendars! May 14-18, 2014, in Ft. Lauderdale Florida! A Seminar with me- conducted through A for Artistic!



Cinderella.....poor overworked Cinderella. It's a good thing she had mice to look after her! 

Imagine what would have happened if the shoe hadn't fit?! Come and join me and create a fun, elderly, but classically beautiful, posable character doll, complete with funky costuming and unique accessories!

I will be teaching a 4 day seminar in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, beginning on May 14th, 2014! I don't conduct many seminars in person anymore- so why not take this opportunity to join me? The class will be held in a private studio right on the water. Its a beautiful setting, relaxing and conducive to creative energy.

I will continue to post photos here as this class develops, and also will update with prices etc. Students will stay in a nearby hotel, with transportation to and from the studio provided. The hotel provides free shuttle service from the airport and the hotel has free continental breakfast served each morning!

Most materials will also be included in the seminar. So mark your calendar! Come and join us as we consider poor Cinderella, if the shoe hadn't fit!  

You will need to bring your own clay. More about this later; each person develops their own preferences for brands of clay. Deb will have a limited amount of conditioned and aged clay on hand for purchase as well as packaged clay to buy. 

Registration is now open at: A for Artistic Don't wait too long, seats are filling fast! Go to A for Artistic, click on Live Classes and you will see the information there. 

UPDATE: 
This seminar is filled, but we are taking names for a waiting list in case we have some cancellations. Thanks to everyone who has registered! More information will be coming soon.

Home from IDEX- what fun!

Home from IDEX! Just got home last night- late. Came home to a mountain of snow at the end of my driveway, thanks to my son in law, I expect it was he who plowed. This is getting ridiculous. All the warmth and sun of Florida- to come home to another 10 inches of snow. But! It is good to be HOME.

The show was very successful for our group. I was amazed and thrilled for everyone who sold work. I will post a slide show here when I get one done- still have to transfer the photos to my computer.

But, just happy to report that the show was a success and some of our artists won awards too! Double bonus!

Later,
Deb

Meet Wisp! This cute little impish Dragonfly Fairy is modeling the wings I will be teaching in the upcoming online classes! A for Artistic is hosting the first class, starting tomorrow! And then in May it will be offered at International Art Doll Registry so be watching for that.

Also, I will be bringing Wisp with me to IDEX this next month, April 11-14th in Orlando! She too will be the subject of an upcoming class on creating a posable soft bodied doll. This is just too much fun~ If you have any questions, don't be shy!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I am teaching an online class on Sculpting the Female Torso. This class starts next Monday at A for Artistic so be sure to check that out! This is a continuation of my Sculpting the Female Face class, all part of my whole sculpting series, Back to Basics 101.

I felt it would be great to over basic sculpting techniques and the study of anatomy to both beginners and the more advanced as a refresher course. So come and join us! You will need an armature to build this on and that class is running right now, also at A for Artistic.

Come and check it out!

I seriously am embarrassed. I vow, my New Years Resolution, is to be more attentive to this blog!! Now, most people have resolutions that they are going to exercise more- and diet to lose weight- all that's great. I think I've had those resolutions every year since I was about 7!! Well, maybe 17, but you know what I mean.

This year my goal is to work on all those things that I have had to let slide because of life circumstances.

This is my year, and I am already grateful. Thank you God.



Well! I can see it's been a long time since I have checked in here on my Blog. Shame on me! Life has a way of getting in the way, doesn't it. Yes, it does. But it's all GOOD! I wanted to announce that I am back to teaching my online classes!! Right now I have a class underway at A for Artistic, the Sculpting the Female Face. There is still time to join us there! This class at A for Artistic includes sculpting the EAR, which can be difficult at times.

In addition, to my members of International Art Doll Registry, I am ALSO offering classes- the first one is underway right now, Armatures 101. That runs until January 29th. Then the Sculpting the Female Face class will be available to IADR members starting January 23rd!

For IADR, I am offering the EARS class separately so that members can take just that class alone if they choose to.

So! That's what is new with me!! I hope you'll consider taking a class with me- I would love to have you join us at International Art Doll Registry too. I will post links for you here! Thanks- Deb
