Weekend meet and greet...

This weekend I will be at The Paint Spot in Edmonton showing some work and talking to people about art instruction ideas. See you there!

What media, style or technique interests you the most?

"Art is now so much more than traditional art materials." The kinds of art made by recreational artists last year: 30% were multi-layered (mixed media collage, handmade books, cards, scrapbooks or 3D Art); 23% were drawings; 17% were paintings; 18% were digital art. From the Artists & Art Materials Study 2009. Which means almost half the art created last year was not just watercolour, acrylics or oils.

We're networking with art instructors, various clubs and organizations to embrace this new era of creative expression. To this end The Paint Spot is inviting over 25 instructors to promote themselves at our store on May 15. See below for more details, and look for a greater diversification in our art workshops classes and new products coming this fall!

your partner in art-making,

Kimberly Fjordbotten
