Well our family is about to move to the DC area and I am so excited about all of the art galleries and museums. We are going to have so much fun exploring our new digs.
Here is a place that looks interesting, it is called Workhouse Arts Center. It is on 55 acres of land and offers gallery space, classes/workshops, cooperative studios, performance and theatre venues.
According to the Workhouse Arts Center website, “The Workhouse Arts Center is a project of the Lorton Arts Foundation. The expansive complex, once a correctional facility and now a center for arts, culture, and history, has a rich past and an exciting new presence.”
Do you live in the DC area? Have visited any galleries or museums? I would like to hear which ones you recommend.
Yes, it is true. Jeanne Oliver is hosting another E-Course. Back in January I signed up for her Creatively Made E-Course and it was well worth it. Not only was I inspired to create, but I also met wonderful people, was able to watch videos about other artists and how they started in the world of arts, along with video tours of their studios, and best of all Jeanne is such a genuine instructor. I received many tools and the course was only $48.00.
The next E-Course is about building a business. To get a complete list of what is covered please click here. Jeanne is also giving away ten spots! Be sure to visit her blog and see the rules on how to enter.
Good luck! I hope you can be a part of Jeanne’s E-Course. Please be sure to stop back and leave a comment if you sign up or if you win a spot.

I participated in a free webinar last month with artist Jill Berry and it was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend the webinars. They are free, a way to stay inspired, learn new techniques, and meet other artists.
Yesterday I signed up for Jeanne Oliver’s, Creatively Made E-Course. The cost is $48 and it includes many workshops, inspiring video, opportunities to share your work with others, and make new friends.
I am really excited about this and hope it will keep me motivated and give me a jump-start for my 2012 goals. Sheila, from Blessed and Distressed, is the one that helped me discover many creative blogs, books, and workshops. Thank you, Sheila!
Please be sure to visit Jeanne’s blog for details: Jeanne Oliver Designs. She has extended the registration until January 16th due to numerous requests.

For those of you in the Kansas City, Missouri area be sure to visit Beadz Galore. They offer free beading classes. The only requirement is that you buy the supplies needed for the class at their store.

I personally would like to learn this crochet technique. There are videos on YouTube and it looks intriguing. Auntie’s Beads has some of the best videos on many beading topics.
My crocheting skills have not been utilized in quite some time, so I will be taking a class in person for this technique and then practice some other techniques watching videos from Auntie’s Beads.
If you are interested in jewelry classes Urban Arts and Crafts will be hosting several different classes. Please visit their website for more information. All photos in the slideshow are courtesy of Urban Arts and Crafts Facebook Page.
I am taking two of the jewelry classes and a friend of mine has taken soldering classes there and really liked it. They also offer a wide variety of classes (knitting, crochet, sewing) and sell art supplies, yarn, fabric, embellishments, etc.
Learn something new during 2012 or develop a skill further.
Today I am sharing several workshops that I have taken at The Peackock Cafe with Sheila. You can get a glimpse of Sheila’s talent on her blog, Blessed and Distressed.
In an earlier post I recommended a soldering book by Lisa Bluhm entitled, Simple Soldered Jewelry and Accessories. It is an excellent source for soldering with great photos and instruction. Along with Lisa Bluhm’s book is Sally Jean Alexander’s book, Pretty Little Things. It is a beautiful book full of treasures and ideas.
It turns out the Sheila has taken workshops instructed by Sally Jean Alexander and has learned amazing things. Taking workshops is a wonderful way to gain skills because you can always learn something new. I learned some tips and techniques that have really helped me in soldering.
The Peacock Cafe is hosting their last workshop this Saturday the 19th. If you are in the Kansas area be sure to check it out. It will be a fun one.
