RECIPE FROM THE STUDIO




Photograph by Cheryl Poulin

Hi everyone! Cheryl here from the studio!

It's almost September already and I've been real busy all summer long painting everything in sight.. including walls!

Wait until you see the workshop projects I've got lined up for you. I've had them posted on the website for a while and they have been filling up fast. But I'll keep adding more over the next few weeks.

Here are the featured workshops.

Enjoy the recipe at the end of this short newsletter. Oh, and if you like this newsletter, by all means share it with all your painting friends!

Hope to see you at the Open House!

Best regards,

Cheryl

I'm really excited to be hosting an Open House on Sunday, September 11, 2011. I'll be here between 10am and 5pm with some morning refreshments and afternoon wine and cheese. Come on by with a painting friend or introduce someone new to the studio. The more the merrier!

I’ll have all the workshop projects on display for you to see and I’ll show you the line up for future projects too!

I'm looking forward to seeing you then!




REFER A FRIEND

As you know, I always appreciate having new students in the studio. So I thought it would be great to offer up a little something if you refer someone to the studio!

Simply ask a friend to register for a workshop who has never painted here before and I’ll put your name in a box for a chance to win $50.00. Ends Oct. 31, 2011.

I look forward to seeing new faces! And good luck!
