Classes at Rubber Stamp Events Mesa_
We are excited to announce we are bringing our 2017 Watercolor Workshop to the Rubber Stamp Events in Mesa, AZ this November! Class will be held on Friday, November 3, and you can choose to attend at 8:00 AM or 10:30 AM. In this two hour class with Bonnie Krebs, learn to create beautiful watercolor paintings using rubber stamps, markers, and a brush! For several years, Art Impressions has introduced stampers all over the world to their exclusive technique that creates beautiful watercolor scenes. They are easy to use and versatile for all users. You will leave class with your own stunning scenes; no two designs are alike. In our watercolor class, you will create four card samples with our new Watercolor Mini Project Series. Our instructors will take you step by step through the basics of building scenes sharing helpful techniques with hands-on training. You will receive a free, exclusive stamp set, only available for 2017 class attendees (a $20 value)!

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Art Impressions workshop I took last weekend at the Scrapbook Expo in Schaumburg, IL. I've been enjoying all of the You Tube Tutorials (working my way through the list of Watercolor Wednesday tutorials) and have built quite an extensive wishlist in addition to the cart I keep adding to. Thanks for all the beautiful inspiration.
