Another workshop!

FABAIC is a yearly convention which is held in Orlando, Florida and it is THE place to go to if you are into face and body painting. It's 5 days of classes (taught by the best instructors in the industry), demos and parties and as much as I would love to go, it's probably not going to happen for another few years, at least until my children are a little older.

So while I'm waiting for my chance to spend a week in Florida learning everything there is to know about face painting, I'm doing the next best thing - taking classes (locally) that are being offered by some world-class instructors and artists. Last month I attended the Wolfe Brothers' (Nick and Brian) 1-day workshop in Ottawa and then I (unfortunately) had to miss out on another workshop that was given last week in Ottawa by Mark Reid.

These classes are put together by Shelley Summers, A.K.A. Dotsy the Clown, who runs an entertainment company out of London, Ontario. So far, all of the workshops have been given in either Toronto or Ottawa, which meant a 4-hour round trip (to Ottawa) as well as adding the cost of gas to the price of the workshop.
But late last week, Shelley announced ANOTHER workshop which is going to be given less than 5 km from my house! The very talented Sean Avram will be giving a 2-day workshop (May 17th/18th) at the Best Western Hotel in Dorval and I am planning on cashing in my last banked day-off with work to make it to this one!

Check out Sean's website and if you are in the Montreal area, try to make it to his workshop! I hope to be registering for it tomorrow and I'll try to get some photos from the workshop up in my next post!
