News From the Decorative Arts' World
Decorative and Folk Artists recently experienced 6 days of learning and fun at the Creative Painting Convention in Las Vegas, NV, USA. Over 150 events and classes were offered to over 775 attendees. Jo Sonja Jansen, the inspiration behind Chroma’s Jo Sonja Artists’ Colours, taught a wonderful seminar, The Time Keeper’s Garden. This clock featured florals and the bluebird of happiness in bright and sunny colors and was the perfect harbinger of spring and summer!
While at the show, Jo Sonja told us that she is working on 2 new series of colours. Although details are being kept under wraps while these colours are under development, we can tell you that these new colour collections are meant to inspire the newest decorative painter as well as the seasoned professional artist!
A recent survey from the Society of Decorative Painters revealed that 42% of artists create 16 or more projects in a year. With that in mind, why not take a class to get some fresh ideas and learn about new products? The Society of Decorative Painters 41st International Conference and Expo will be held in Chicago, IL, USA, this year, May 13-18, 2013.
