Default Painting classes in Alaska.

Just wondering. I see all kinds of Painting class retreats around the country, and I sure see a few up here in Alaska. What would be your thoughts on a painting class at my shop in Alaska for CNC models?

I could set it up in the middle of the peak silver salmon season, so fishing in the morning, carving and painting in the afternoons.

3 day class. I would provide:

a pre-carved and prepped CNC carving for each day. (Generally when I teach flat canvas painting I want all the folks working through the exact same piece.

than maybe have a Bring your own carving that we could have as a free for all guided "Scott Helps" painting session.

All the paint supplies.

Lunch.


you can check out a few of my painting videos on My FB page Willow Creek Gallery, or one of two on CNC tips and Tricks.

and at least two fishing trips. Shop is on stocked lake, but the salmon river boat launch is just 6 miles from the shop.

We could work through my process for painting wild life pieces.

There are tons of B&B's in the area. So you could bring a spouse.

My costs for Paint, supplies and carved pieces could be kept under $250 per person. The real expense would be travel to Alaska and a place to Stay.

For some of you this could be a tax deduction.


John keeps threatening to come up. I just saw another painting class pop up on my feed, and I am setting up several canvas painting classes for the summer. So thought of your Characters.


Thoughts??

Thereís now way I could do that financially, and I don't own, nor have I ever used a CNC machine, BUT Iím gonna buy a lottery ticket with the express hope of winning so I could be a customer! Be well worth the price just to meet you and John, and hold a fishing rod. Alaska is on my bucket list. During WWII my grandfather tried to enlist, but he had 3 kids so they wouldnít let him in. He asked what he could do to help, they said they needed help building a highway. He quit his job, and went up to Alaska, and helped build the Al-Can highway. Iíve wanted to see Alaska ever since. If I can get the picture to load, itís of my grandfather standing in front of a trading post, in Alaska.

Apparently the trading post is in the Yukon, in Canada.

Epic story. and free coffee and sitting in the boat telling stories is always free if you make it up here.

That is a great opportunity for a wonderful experience for someone. I wish you great success organizing it. I think it is very generous of you to share your great talents with others, you do such beautiful work.

What the Hell, I don't do CNC, never will do CNC, so if I ever get to Alaska, I won't be attending; but if you can do it, I say go for it. Usually not a bad thing, passing along knowledge - unless you're a bank robber or something.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I also think it would be a great experience, especially for someone like me who’s never traveled very far .
My nick name used to be Bubble Boy ,cause everyone thought I lived in a bubble lol .

Would be nice to say I actually visited Alaska once, and it makes it that much better knowing someone when you get there.

Guess I should have renewed my passport
