ACRYLIC ART CLASS AT THE CENTRAL ACTIVITIES CENTER IN PHENIX CITY

Tom Corley continues to teach at the activities center, but due to circumstances finds himself
stretched thin and not getting things done as he am accustomed.

His new assistant, Janice Crain will teach the October class and already has 20 students

Tuesdays of the month.

The center is located at 1500 14th street in Phenix City (old Central High School) and is open to all
Seniors over the age of 50, for a $10 annual membership fee.  
Cost is $40 per month and all supplies but brushes are provided.  Contact: Tom Corley @
334-298-7480 or email   
tomcorley3@bellsouth.net

Class size is limited so please sign up early, or notify Tom Corley (334-298-7480)  to

You are invited to Darla Bostick’s 10th Annual Ghost Ranch Workshop/Retreat in Abiquiu, NM  1-7 October
2017.  Includes digital photography, watercolors/acrylics, pencil, ink, incorporating text and mixed media work with
options for plein air painting and comfort of a group activity room (floor to ceiling vista views). For 7 days/6 nights you
can relax, enjoy, and create. Lodging and meals included at Ghost Ranch property. The Georgia O'Keeffe Landscape
Tour takes you where she painted from the local, magnificent area scenery. Visit the O’Keeffe studio/home on tour.  
Space is limited to 16 participants. Bring materials you love to work with (or try something new) and join us! The
workshop fee is $550. Room and board at the Ranch are not included and are their rates—which has recently been
redesigned to provide the ultimate discount for those sharing a room, so bring a friend! Unclaimed rooms will be
released 25 August. Currently there are 12 spaces left!

Come and see for yourself why Georgia O’Keeffe loved Ghost Ranch! Last year each participant received $300+ in art
merchandise in their welcome bag…and door prizes exceeded $800!

Artists -- ever wonder why no one is beating a path to your door to buy your product?  Even though
there are some successful artists who have a plethora of commissions, if you don't get out there to show
what you can do, you're not going to have much success.  Join a Gallery or look for area art shows that
can be a venue for what you produce.  Look for artist friendly shows, and learn from them.  
Coincidentally, Arts on the River is one of those shows.  It's easy, not out in the boondocks, and there is
a
Helpful Hints page in this site to help you if it's your first time.  
YOU CAN LEARN A LOT FROM YOUR CUSTOMERS!  Pay attention to what people
say, and get a feel for what they want.  
ART DOESN'T HAVE TO MATCH THE SOFA!
There are subtle ways to make a painting fit in, such as a mat or frame.  Sometimes it's
the contrast that calls attention to a piece of art.  If it's something they really like,
encourage them (gently) to consider a purchase.
SHELLEY FLEISHMAN will be a participant in this
year's Chalktoberfest in Marietta, Ga. Her art will
be at the doorway of Markay gallery on Winter
street. In chalk. No rain!

She's also working on her largest encaustic
commission ever!  A 4 x 6  piece that incorporates
silk prints of family photos. It's a challenge to work
that big with the melted wax and blow torch. She
says she can barely reach across it.
