Announcing Our

3rd Annual Santa's Summer Workshop

Our most popular summer workshop is back and is bigger than ever.  This is the summer version of our "12 Days of Christmas/Countdown to Christmas Workshop" where the surfaces and printed patterns are included. This year we are adding an exclusive designated Facebook group where you can ask additional questions, post your creations and we can get to know each other better and have some fun.  I will be on it daily and will be looking forward to your involvement with our activities and conversations.  We will talk about trends, colors and lots of new techniques and things to try.  What a great way to get a head start on holiday projects.  All projects will be holiday themed, all projects are new and exclusive for the upcoming season!  There are lots of ornaments and also some signs.


Our "2015 Santa's Summer Workshop" will include 12 all new holiday projects.  The workshop includes:  12 projects - 12 online videos - 12 surfaces PLUS 12 printed patterns and photos.  You don't have to print them out!.  The projects will all be holiday themed.  You will have unlimited access to all materials for a minimum of one year.  So if you are busy when a new project opens, join in when it is convenient for you.  A good variety of new surfaces and new characters are on my drawing board. 


The surfaces and pattern will be mailed out the last week of May.  They will be in sealed envelopes so you can decide if you open them ahead of time to see the projects or you wait until you go to watch the video and have a surprise each time you open an envelope.  It is just like opening a gift each day.  Project videos will be released 4 in the second week of June, 4 in the second week of July and 4 in the second week of August.  You will be sent the password and additional information by June. You have unlimited access to materials so you can review videos as often as you wish.  If you are not into videos, don't worry, you will have all the surfaces, photos and instructions already and can work whenever you want.


We listened to what people liked and have put our best into these projects plus added additional new benefits and incentives to make this the ultimate summer holiday event.  Our designs are exclusive to this event and won't be in any other program or published elsewhere for a minimum of one year. We don't show the photos of the projects ahead of time to keep it fun and also to keep it exclusive to our group.  If you want to see examples of past projects, click here...


It is easy to participate:

  1. Register online or give us a call to register.  
  2. Priority envelopes will be mailed to participants with the goodies. They will start shipping the last week of May.  You will be given written instructions for getting additional online materials in your packets.
  3. To participate during the "live" event, open your envelopes in numerical order. One per day.  Follow the schedule with dates you will be given.   If you are not participating each day, you can join in anytime during or after the live event. You will be able to open any of the days in any order after the projects are opened online. Online materials will go up in order, each morning at 8 am CDT. Once they are up, they will remain available for a minimum of one year

Once a month we will have an online class with a single exclusive project.  It includes a video where you can paint with me at your own pace and on your schedule.  Our club projects include more than ornaments, there are signs and larger cut outs too.

The videos feature "how to" lessons, tips and techniques you will want to try.  You will also get a pdf that includes your photos, instructions, supply list and linework.  We can include larger photos and sometimes multiple photos to work from.  It's GREAT!  You can download the pdf's and have unlimited access to the videos.  You paint on your terms.@

The classes will be up online by the 15th of each  month.  Club members will get a password sent to them the night before each class becomes available.   Most projects will be adaptable to multiple surfaces so you can use things you might already own or have access to.  This year there is an option of purchasing all the surfaces for the year.  That way you have the surfaces in your hands ready to work on the project when it becomes available.  All 12 surfaces will be shipped in a Priority Mail medium size box in January or when a person joins throughout the year. Club members also will be offered opportunities for extra savings on other workshops, products and events throughout the year.

Here is the deal:  The online club runs January to December   If you join at a later date during the year, you will receive all the previous months classes but you will not benefit from previous special pricing or offers. . 

The Creative Online Classroom Club 2015  is one online club class per month starting Jan. 2015 and you have access 24/7, 365 days a year.
