Distinctive Brushstrokes Home Seminar
October 24 [prep night] - 27, 2013
Dear Painting Friend,
We would love to invite you to join us for our 13th Annual Home Seminar team taught by Judy Diephouse and Lynne Deptula!
Our seminar piece this year is A Delightful Duet, two interchangeable table tops on one wrought iron table base. We'll have fun painting the Holiday table top design featuring charming elements complimented with a delicate strokework border. Then you'll paint the All Season Floral table top design featuring lovely floral elements you'll enjoy all year long. The cost for both tops with one base is $100.00.
You will receive a complete painting pattern with multiple photographs for the seminar project. Paints will be provided by DecoArt Americana. We will have some specialty brushes available for sale, but would like you to bring your favorite painting brushes and supplies to class.
The surface for the class will be purchased from Distinctive Brushstrokes, but please feel free to bring in additional surfaces of your choice if you are an energetic painter.
For the seminar, we will be using the video monitor system. Our ladies LOVE it...up close viewing for everyone. Every seat is a great seat and this system makes for a very enjoyable, relaxed and educational experience.
Then there's the food...each seminar day will include a mid-morning snack break, delightful lunch prepared by Lynne and Judy, a mid-afternoon pick-me-up with our fabulous Snack Fairy Terri, plus a selection of beverage choices throughout the day. The hotel provides a complimentary breakfast. You will be responsible for your own dinner, but we do arrange a group reservation for our ladies if you wish to join us. We have two terrific husbands and several generous friends who have offered their transportation services to our painting friends!
