Workshops, classes and more!

Workshops & Online Classes with your favorite Sketchbook Challenge artists.

We keep our commercial presence to one monthly post so that we can share other opportunities to take workshops, purchase art or enjoy other offerings from all of us. Check out our workshops and  books. Thank you for being a part of the Sketchbook Challenge! It's an honor to share this journey with you.

Textured Silk Flower Vase Workshop with Sue Bleiweiss  at Ink About It in Westford MA on April 26 and 27,2013:
In this class we’ll transform silk fabric into a richly colored textured surface that we’ll use to create a vase filled with beautiful flowers. Although we’re working with fabric we won’t be using a sewing machine for this project. In this two part class we’ll spend the first class together creating the textured surface and painting it. Then once it’s allowed to dry overnight we’ll spend the second class creating the vase and flowers. No experience working with silk fabric required –just a sense of fun and adventure!  All the registration details for this class are here on the Ink About It website.  Registration is limited to 12 students so call Ink About It at 978-392-0321 to secure your spot!

Kick off Your Heels Call for Art Shoes:  A fundraiser to raise money for donation to the  The Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California.

Important dates to remember:

December 1, 2012: Call for art shoes issued
February 15, 2013: online registration opens
March 15, 2013: submission deadline

Shoe criteria: Start with a pair of purchased shoes.  Shoes must be womens size 6 and above with at least a 3" heel.  They should be a pump style shoe.  No boots, sneakers or sandals please.  

You can alter your shoes in any way you like but you may not cut the heel off to create a flat shoe.  Cut, drill, manipulate, string beads, draw, cover, paint, collage etc. the surface of your shoes.  Your only  personal  artistic style and/or the skies the limit.  The artwork cannot exceed 4" beyond the shoes.  The high heels don't have to be wearable, but more like art pieces that stand on a table and they must be able to stand on their own without props.  

All of your embellishments must be firmly attached to the shoes so that nothing will fall off when they are shipped to their buyer.   Visit the Kick off Your Heels blog here for more information.
