Weekly Newsletter Volume 33 | February 10, 2020

What a busy week we had! Lots of new product is arriving almost daily it seems. Watch social media for sneak peaks.

Layle Konar is coming to Creative Escape March 27&28. She will be doing 3 albums. Registration is now open!

We had no electricity yesterday and some amazing students and staff powering through. Nikki managed to teach in the dark and people's projects looked so cute. Nikki's March classes are now open for registration as well.

Our electricity is out today as well but scheduled to come on around 2pm. We are here, open and ready to help.

We appreciate everyone's patience and support as we continue to navigate our new register system. In closing out past classes that were purchased online, email notifications were sent that your item has been shipped to you. We apologize for the email. We were marking classes as complete instead of pending to reflect in your accounts.

Growing up Greek, we always celebrated lots of life's milestones. If you ask anyone that knows me, I LOVE celebrating birthdays in particular. Registration for my Birthday Bash craft weekend has opened. The entire weekend will be full of fun surprises in store and at the event. (Due to feedback that it was father's day weekend, we shifted the event from Sat/Sun to Fri/Sat.)

Have a great week!

Local Artist Lexi Grenzer
This month is all about creating an illustrative style of work with our watercolor and detail pen work.

Drawing & Watercolor

2/05, 2/12, 2/19 and 2/26
Single sessions $40
9am to 11am
Join Lexi for a decidedly modern approach to sketching and painting flowers. You will sketch and paint several flowers each session. This will be particularly enjoyable for those of you who like art journaling, card making and mixed media. 

Drawing & Watercolor
Thursdays in February
2/06, 2/13, 2/20 and 2/27
Single sessions $40
6:30pm to 8:30pm

Join Lexi for a fantastic technique filled day of mixed media techniques. Our main focus will be on the basics of chalk pastels and basics of encaustics (beeswax), but there will be so many amazing mediums to enjoy throughout the day. This is considered a beginner course to both pastels and beeswax, but even if you've done both, I think you'll find fun new ways to explore.
