Certification Updates

Upcoming Events
For those of you who are local, I will be teaching a basic Marker Rendering class on Thursday, April 21, from 7 to 9pm at DIVA Gallery in Eugene. We'll cover basic marker care, techniques, choosing papers, and airbrushing,. If you are interested, please contact DIVA, at www.divanow.org

Standard Certifications, North America
There are classes open all over the country right now, as Spring and Fall are the most popular times for classes. Check the following list to make sure you don't miss out on a class near you. Classes are filling FAST, especially the Intermediate classes, so get your applications in right away! A few minor changes to the upcoming list of Certification Classes, as Jennie Black will no longer be hosting Certifications, but she will be teaching plenty of consumer classes at her local stamping stores in the LA area.

Just to remind you, retakes are only $40, and it is always a good idea to hear material a second time. I personally will be teaching Las Vegas, San Diego, Coos Bay, and Berne, so come visit me if you haven't experienced one of my classes. Otherwise, look for classes in your area that might be taught by someone new. After you've taken one of our Certification classes, sign up for an Intermediate class, as that's where the real fun happens.

For international Certifications, please visit my class updates from last month.

Intermediate Certification
Intermediate Papercrafting Certification classes are popular! These classes are open to ANYONE who has taken the standard Certification class, and who wants to learn how to color and design more like an artist. The Phoenix class was a huge success! This class is a MUST for the serious papercrafter. Sure, we discuss coloring, but this class also shows you how to think like an Artist, and take your work to a whole new, objective level.
