David Vernon (c) 2011
Can you believe that is really 2011 already? Well there is so much planned for this year and I am beginning to wonder if I can add more items to the list that I have already. A big event that we will be a participant will be the CAG (Ceramic Artist Guild) CONVERGENCE Conference July 17-23, 2011. I will be teaching 5 classes during the conference from my new patterns pictured above. We will be painting and sharing the news about the Heritage product family with ceramicists from around the country and maybe from around the world. At the conference I will be teaching teaches the floral designs using the Heritage arcylics/mediums on ceramic bisque. I am really looking forward to participating at this event, which will be held at the Corban University, Salem, Oregon. I have never been to Oregon so this will be an adventure and a little vacation as well. I really cannot wait. The conference should be exciting where we will meet many new ceramicists and painters. The conference will provide lots of classes and activities. I am hoping that I see many of my friends at the conference.
Now on another topic, I would like to remind everyone that we have 3 great seminars planned already for this year. Do not miss Sandy Scales in April, Tatiana Sholohkova in July, and of course the one and only David Jansen in September. Pampered Palette will be providing something special, not just the pampering that we provide during the seminars, but attendees will receive FREE a Pampered Palette notebook (project pictured on the front cover)(suitable for taking class notes) for Sandy's seminar, a FREE tote bag (project pictures on the front and back) for attending Tatiana's seminar and a FREE Pampered Palette apron for attending David Jansen's seminar. Why would we do this? Because "WE ARE THE PREMIERE STUDIO FOR THE DECORATIVE ARTIST" and we want everyone to enjoy the pampering that they will receive at Pampered Palette. So, do not wait, visit http://www.pamperedpalette.com/ and reserve your seminar seats today! Space is limited.
