Spring 2014 Creative U Review

Our spring Creative Coach University was here and went.  No matter how hard you try, it just goes by so darn quickly that it barely is a blink.  We did so much in just a few short days.  Our participants work very hard to meet each of the challenges.  We talk about "going outside of their box" a lot.  Many start with trouble leaving what is familiar and trying something new.  What can even be harder is trying to come up with something different from your neighbor.  They learn very quickly that there are no right or wrong solutions.  Just ones that maybe work a little better.

We worked on fun backgrounds, new lettering styles, image transfers and tried out new products and techniques.  We try to include our traditional painting techniques with new techniques and approaches.

Dates are up for fall 2014 and spring 2015 -
