This year, Chris Haughey helped us “Gear Up For Art” at the 2015 SDP Conference & Expo. Her Conference art took us on an adventure into the world of mixed media.
Next year, Debbie Cole CDA, the 2016 SDP Conference artist, will take us on “An Artful Journey”!
Read what Chris said about her 2015 Conference experience, and what Debbie Cole CDA has in store for everyone in 2016!
“I wasn’t sure how receptive students would be to the unusual techniques that were involved in my special event, “Gear Up For Art.” This class took a different approach using DecoArt’s new Media line. Everyone loved the fresh, saturated paints; they had so much fun applying them to the background, layout, color and dimensional embellishments of the design. I was beyond thrilled! In addition to traditional painting, we scraped, stenciled, flicked, and even finger painted! My thoughts to sum it up – don’t be afraid to venture outside the box. Try new techniques, products and mediums. It will open many creative doors and the possibilities are endless!”
“I am thrilled to have been selected as the 2016 SDP Conference Artist. I love the theme, “An Artful Journey”! My head has been spinning with design ideas ever since I heard the theme. What can you expect? New techniques that everyone will enjoy; a project that incorporates innovative products that you can take home; an experience that will take you on “An Artful Journey” like no other. I know that the SDP Board is working hard to make the 2016 SDP Conference & Expo a wonderful event. I look forward to seeing you all next year!
