Join Laurie in her studio for this 3 day workshop/seminar program.  This program is designed to help people explore, create and establish a success path for themselves in the decorative painting field. 

The seminar will benefit:

  • Painters wanting to explore new outlets and challenges in painting.

  • Anyone wanting a fun-filled painting experience full of tips, techniques, theory, new product and ideas.

  • Crafters wanting to create or expand their business

  • Designers wishing to improve their business and creativity skills

  • Teachers and anyone interested in sharing decorative painting

This program is designed to jump-start your passion for painting.  Whether you are looking for a full-time career, interested in teaching or just wanting some fun new creative painting challenges; you will find it here.

The seminar is divided into a series of mini workshops and lessons.  There will be lots of painting and sessions with topics that include:

  • Creativity Challenge - learning to create outside the box.  Learn to take a basic idea and expand on it and go to the next level

  • Business Basics and Beyond -  understanding sales, profitability and identify business opportunities and pitfalls

  • Tools and Trends of the Trade – sample new products and create projects based on current and coming trends.  Projects are created new for each session and are not repeated from year to year.    We average 2-3 projects per day.

  • Building on Basics and Going the Distance - learn to break skills down and be able to share your talents
