It won't be long until the studio is ship-shape and ready for in person classes!! I have been steadily whittling down the number of boxes after the move. I have my list and I'm getting things crossed off it! Once I get more of my beginner class projects painted and get my finished paintings on display I will set the date. Likely near the end of September.
I'm teaching a couple of online classes in the meanwhile - you could check them out on my home page: Love Blooms and Autumn blue pumpkin sign.
FACEBOOK LIVE Paint parties and demos.
This month - August - I will start doing Facebook Lives again. These are always free. Feel free to watch and join in the painting whenever you are able. Here's the link to my Facebook Biz page. https://www.facebook.com/KeepsakesArtStudio
Here's a Free painting I've been doing on my Biz page. It will be in 3 parts approximately 1 hour each.
Greater Things Sunflower Field
The Free Live painting videos are always staying on my biz page but may become hard to find as I add more things to the newsfeed. So I also post them into the Adult Paint Party group or the Kids Paint Party group if they are easy enough for kids to do. If you haven't joined my Groups, please do. It's a great way to stay connected with all the new things as they happen.
Here are the links:
Adult Paint Party Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KeepsakesPaintPartyCommunity
Kids Paint Party Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KeepsakesKidsPaintParties
I find that Facebook is always changing the LOOK and you may have to search for GUIDES. Currently, there is a hamburger sign on your phone - three stacked lines - in the upper left
OR on computer - click the tab in the menu that says MORE
(depends on how you are viewing the page)
When you get admitted to the group you should see Guides on the menu
Have a browse through to find all of the previous Live Video recordings and the PDFs for the line drawings (tracers), the supplies list, a photo and and instructions for prep.
Greater Things is in Guide 13
You will also want to sign up for my newsletter if you are on my website right now. If you sign up this month, you will get a link to this month's Free design and video tutorial.
The link to sign up is at the bottom of the home page on my website.
If you haven't signed up in the past, please join my Keepsakes newsletter list now. This is how we will stay in contact if social media ever changes or bans me. (It does happen!) You never know...
I don't send Spam or Junk mail - only a monthly (or sometimes twice a month) newsy email with all the links to my Online Free paint parties and upcoming classes, a painting demo and technique tips. I'm going to try to do some challenges and give aways too! You don't want to miss anything!!
LOCAL IN PERSON CLASSES
I will be having an Open Studio in late September (date TBD) so you can come and have a peek. Sign up for classes if you are close. There will be Beginner classes in Acrylics and Watercolours. If you have experience, you might like to try my Open Studio night or a weekend workshop or two - or ALL of them :-)
I'll also be having a sale of all my previous paintings. When I moved I found out all the paintings and painted decor pieces that I had squirrelled away in all the cubbyholes in my last house. I'd like to pare those down even more so there are some items with really low sale prices.
Bring all your friends. Word of mouth is my best advertising!!!
I'll post the date SOON!!
I've also recently started a Facebook page for my own Fine Art.
And I'm on Instagram
Fine Art https://www.instagram.com/debbieeckmierfineart/
More info to come soon!!
I'm getting excited for the Fall and Christmas season - Always such FUN painting to decorate the house each year with new paintings or to give a handpainted gift to that special someone.
Hope you can join me for classes!
Happy painting! Debbie
