We're throwing an art party and you're invited! Come celebrate the creative magic of Theresa Disney and enjoy an evening of Fun! and Food! and Games! 

Kick off the new year with a fresh collection from Theresa, who mixes mirth into her paint and specializes in smile-inducing artwork. Feel free to don a costume, throw on a party hat, or come dressed as your favorite color. We promise to start your year off with a creative spark! Don't be surprised if you meet a guitar-strumming gorilla....he is totally harmless and 100% entertaining.

Theresa's sense of playfulness and joi de vivre will be in full swing - it's a party not to miss!

 

Workshop with Melissa Menzer: Mini-Mod Vignette + Retro Lunch

Jan 30th, 2016

Location: 211 East 1st Street, Sanford, FL
Time: 9:30am to 4:00pm
Mini-Mod Vignette Workshop

Create a nostalgic keepsake nestled inside a 1950's miniature container. Melissa will share her sculpting techniques and access to her stash of vintage goodies. Each pariticipant will recieve an antique miniature box, cup, or unique container to build their vignette in. You may create any animal or person you desire.

Taking cues from the mid-century modern craze, Melissa has dreamed up a perfectly kitschy 1950's menu that we'll serve on her retro linens and tableware.  

Lunch and all supplies included. Cost: $150

Barbara and Terri have been coaching home-based artists with their professional savvy for years. Topics include learning how to make your business stand out in a crowded market; creating a fan base of collectors who will generate word of mouth endorsements and do the marketing for you; how to get your products in front of repeat buyers; and how to make a lot more money without putting in a lot more time.

Friday, February 19 from 6 to 9pm and Saturday, February 20 from 9am to 4pm. Cost: Early bird registration $97 before January 15. After January 15: $147.
