Art Supply Giveaway! {Let’s Celebrate the new Portraits Class}

I hope you all had a great weekend!

We had our first week back from vacation and Jack started high school within hours of us returning home.

Jack has always been home-schooled (except for his weekly enrichment school) and I have to be honest that he adjusted much easier than I did:-)

I loved having him home this weekend and I think that weekends will be cherished much more from here on out.

Benjamin has been sick since the day we left California and when he gets sick it usually goes to his lungs.  We spent an early morning at the ER this week to help his breathing and I am so happy to say that he is on the mend.

After loads and loads of laundry mixed in with the other activity of our first week home I am ready to get back into the swing of things.

I think that a awesome giveaway is in order to celebrate surviving the first week of high school:-)

OK, I am really wanting to celebrate the brand new Studying Under The Masters {Portraits and Self-Portraits}!

This new course will be in the same format as the original Masters course but this time we will focus on portraits and self-portraits.

This new course will have 5 artists that will be joining me for a 6 week online course.

To read more about the new course you can read my previous blog post HERE or go directly to my creative network.

You can also register by using the paypal button at the bottom of this post.

This 6 week course begins September 30, 2014 (avail. for 2 years)

Early registration price of $49 and the price will go to $62 on September 1.

The first Masters class had over 1,000 students, the response to the course was incredible and the art that was created blew the teachers away.

To celebrate the new portraits class I wanted to giveaway some of my favorite everyday art supplies and some new tools I have just started using.

I am giving away more than $300 worth of art supplies!

The Matilda Art Bag sold out almost instantly (don’t worry more will be coming the next collection) but before the art bag was created I used one of my camera bags to carry supplies.

I also want to give away one of my Josie Camera Bags that you can you use for your supplies.

The total value of the giveaway is over $450!

    When I lived on Maui on then 1980’s, when Maui was “small town” and not crowded, I signed up for classes from local artists where we would go around the island, upcountry, Makawao, Kula & sometimes the beach, I still have some of the paintings that I did not finish, of course I don’t think they are very good, not long ago I was reading about a small island far away and not crowded off Spain, that sounds like a place I could go and finish the paintings? Or start a new ones! Love your classes and spreading the word. Thank You.

    What a wonderful giveaway! I would love to surprise my daughter, who is celebrating her 30th birthday, with this lovely gift. She was an art major at Duke University in the early 2000’s and has since gotten so busy with her career she has gotten away from her wonderful art. She went to Italy for her honeymoon a couple weeks ago and talked about how she wants to spend more time painting etc. This would be a wonderful incentive for her to get started!! Thank for this wonderful opportunity. Proud Mom

  94. That bag with those art supplies…. happy sigh.

  125. Elaine Neidig commented:

    This is awesome!! I took the first masters course and am surely taking this one. If I could pick a place to create it would be Italy, my grandmother and grandfather came from Calabria. Nana is what we called her, I will never forget her because she instilled such deep faith in me. I am so excited about the course and who doesn’t like art supplies.

  126. Martin Holloway commented:

    I would love to travel to Arles or Paris, or even back to Sedona, Az to paint. I studied with Clair Fry at Scottsdale Artist’s School about 30 years ago. Needing to rekindle the fire I once had for portraiture…Recently retired due to lumbar issues, but ready now to fire on all cylinders!!

  130. I would love to travel to Barcelona, Spain to create art. Also Japan. Anywhere in Japan. I am okay in Japan (I am a whitie and I speak Japanese) 🙂 Perhaps Italy would also be an amazing place to paint. My favorite thing to paint is faces. I am so happy to be a part of this class! September 30th will be here before we know it! <3

  136. What a wonderful give away! Can’t wait for the class to start. My first choice would be to travel to France – Paris, Provence. Oh who am I kidding, anywhere in France! If not, I’d love to go to Scotland – all those old castles, lovely mountains and history!

I can imagine sitting outside with a gorgeous hat or maybe a headband made of flowers and a beautiful French easel creating art.( But a ponytail , sketch book and flip flops would be more me.) I would love to travel anywhere to create art. This could be the mountains with a rolling brook, on a big rock with a waterfall in the background, an open prairie with wheat and windflowers blowing in the wind, the beach with the sound of seagulls and waves in the distance, a cabin in the forest with the sound of birds and rustling of trees and fall leaves, on the porch of a charming, old Victorian home, the steps of an old church with beautiful stained glass windows and old wooden floors or maybe just sitting at the base of a tree in the backyard with a handmade quilt and cup of tea. Thanks for the opportunity!

  174. I registered for this class as soon as I heard about it! I’d love to win this giveaway… sketching is my passionate intention and I would love to get into the habit here in the beautiful NW, in my upcoming trip to France, or just any place I happen to want to record the beauty around me.

    New England is where I would love to create

  176. Cheryl Jenkins commented:

    What a chance to experience some great supplies. I am really excited for this new class; I loved the first masters classes. As far as where I would like travel and create art it would be Spain. I just can’t imagine the sounds, smells and wonderful people of this exciting country, the architecture both grand and simple would be a joy. Thank you for opportunity !

My desire is also to attend an art retreat in San Miguel de Allende Mexico in october of 2015.

  204. Nathalie commented:

  205. Loretta commented:

    If I couldn’t travel I would most likely paint the clients that come in and out of our clinic. Their faces tell a story. Some are talented unknown artist and we display their art called Sunshine from Darkness that our hospital puts on annually.

  206. I have always dreamed of traveling to the English country side and see what I can create there…. There’s something about little cottages and rolling hills that I have always been drawn to… Awesome give away!! I will be sharing on IG & Pinterest!!

  208. Maggie Barbour commented:

    I’d travel along the coast of Oregon with my hubby, a photographer that is unfortunately going blind. We would stop at all the cool places, cool artsy cities, see the ocean, the mountains, the forests, the dunes, the flora and fauna, the boats, the people, and the sunsets. He could snap pictures to his heart’s content, and I would paint them! I want him to see all the beauty he can and celebrate each day of sight we are gifted. 🙂

  284. I just found you on Pinterest and how happy I am that I did. What an interesting blog you have. The world is full of so many inspiring places it’s hard to choose just one place to visit so I think I would like to start in India. It would be interesting to paint with such vivid colour palettes such an abundance of life. I am also pinning your blog.

  285. Wonderful giveaway! I already bought the class the very first day! I was so excited. I would love to go to Italy with you and create art:-)

    I love the pictures you shared from your trips to France and Italy…it looks like it would be an amazing place to go and create art! Or even just heading across the U.S. and capturing the beauty…

  291. Holly C commented:

    I also pinned this post… Thank you so much for the learning opportunities! 🙂

  292. Ooh what a delicious question. Well naturally Italy springs to mind – to soak up the souls of Da Vinci, Botticelli and Canaletto… But then again the South of France was much beloved by the Impressionists for the quality of the light… and let’s face it Paris is surely the mecca of artists. I quite fancy somewhere wild and untamed too – perhaps Scandinavia? Shall I just say Europe to be on the safe side?

  293. I would love to continue to travel the world doing missions work.. So anywhere God directs my feet… There is art to be found even in the most terrible situations

  294. Cindy T commented:

    I’m excited that I will be traveling to Italy with you next summer to do art! I can hardly wait. I’m going to be going to Baja in October, and plan to bring my art supplies with me there, too. Where is it not fun to travel and create art?!!! 🙂

  306. I’ve posted about the give away and workshop on Facebook!

  307. This is amazing and I signed up for the class this looks awesome, If I can draw or paint it doesnot matter where I am it will be all right, but if I have to choose it would be the south of France

    I love art. Art was the beginning of my passion for what I do, I started to paint when I was 10 years old, and I haven’t pain in so long, I don’t have any materials to work with since I move from Mexico, so this will be a great gift for me to start painting again. One of my dreams is to attend to one of your art retreats and the places I would love to go is ether Italy or Greece.

  319. I shared on Pinterest….Thank you very much for this amazing give away, I really hope I can win it and start my artistic skills to be ready for one of your art retreats.

  320. I shared on my business face and on my personal face too…..I think a lots of my creative friends are going to love this post and I am sure I am going to have a lots of like.

  321. I want to blog about your course but I steel don’t get to make my blog to work, it hasn’t been easy for me to create my own, I am so bad with the computer, but I know I need it.

    We haven’t traveled for what feels like forever now because of kiddos medical bills, but oh my goodness, would we love to make art in Europe or Africa, either one. They are so vastly different, both with such beauty. Africa is changing so quickly, that I might have to say Africa before it changes too much;-)

  328. I believe the winner was supposed to be announced Aug. 25th….did I miss the announcement. I can’t seem to find it anywhere 🙂 Thanks!
