Want to earn some extra money?
Do a Workshop!

How would you like to earn some money? Would you like to share a particular skill you have in creating art? The Longmont Artist Guild is looking for art instructors to expand our workshop program. You provide the studio space (usually in your home) along with your "expertise" on a particular technique or project. LAG will get the word out for you so you can get lots of students. No commission or fees to LAG as long as you are a current member. You can charge $10 - $25 per person, depending on the length of the workshop and what you provide. You can always send out a supply list and the students bring their own. To offer a workshop, get ideas or advice, just email us at:

LAG Artists' Around Town
Christine Jarvis is a mixed media recycle artist who creates one-of-a-kind mixed media paintings, paper collage and 3 dimensional works of art. She combines discarded items such as paper, fiber, paint and metal such as in "Renaissance Woman" and "Girl Robot" She tore apart old magazines to create the collage "Boulder, Colorado". When viewed at a distance you can see Colorado mountains and trees. When viewed up close you notice tiny houses and people's faces. She is fascinated by the world of science, thus showcasing her 3 dimensional "DNA Strand" and "Andromeda's Worlds" paintings. She is inspired by everything and everyone that crosses her journey through life and hopes that it is reflected in her works of art.

Christine Jarvis is currently offering her art for sale in the Holiday Art Show at The Great Frame Up on Main St in Longmont. The Art Show will run until January 2019. If you have any special requests, you are welcome to contact her at 970-261-6261 or you can pop over to her art studio.
Janet Strickler has published her newest project, a set of 60 inspiration cards called Grateful Every Day.  The front of each card has a colorful abstract background of her artwork or photography, and a topic to be grateful for (for instance, Grateful for Furniture or Grateful for Color,) and on the back of the card are questions and prompts to help you discover more gratitude around that topic.  These cards make great prompts for a gratitude journal, or conversation-starters at the dinner table or at the office.  They also make wonderful gifts, if you know someone who would like more gratitude in their life!  They are available on her Etsy shop with free shipping through the end of the year, at
Jill Rumley just opened her online store featuring a 2019 Calendar of her artwork.
