Happy New Year
Have you broken any New Year's Resolutions yet? I haven't because I didn't make any!
I did set a few goals for the year regarding my art work and painting channel, so it's too early to know if I will make those or not.
As I mentioned last month I am planning to develop painting classes that I can provide as a live web-streaming video directly form my new studio. I have started researching and testing how all of this "streaming stuff" works. It is a little complicated but I have managed to run about three short streaming "tests" through the You Tube Livestream Service. So it will work from my studio thanks to Verizon FIOS fiber-optic service but it takes a lot of computer horsepower to do all the encoding, previewing and streaming.
My thoughts are that I will do one oil painting class each month on the third Wednesday of each month from 1:00PM - 4:00PM (Eastern Standard Time) - the same days and times as my oil painting classes that I previously provided at Britton Falls.
I may add some watercolor sessions before June if there is enough interest.
So the current schedule is as follows:
Class 1 - Oils January 20, 2016 - 1:00PM - 4:00PM (same time each month).
Class 2 - Oils February 17, 2016
Class 3 - Oils March 16, 2016
Class 4 - Oils April 20, 2016
Class 5 - Oils May 18, 2016
Class 6 - Watercolor Workshop for Beginners June 15, 2016
Class 7 - Oils September 21, 2016
Class 8 - Oils October 19, 2016
Class 9 - Oils November 16, 2016
Class 10 - Oils December 21, 2016
Email me with your questions or if you have any preferences.
All classes will be recorded and if you sign up for a class and can't watch it live, I will give you a password-protected link to download the video so you can watch the class on your computer at your convenience.
Each class will cost $10 - January Class is free. I need to work out any technical bugs and this class may need a little extra effort and a little understanding from my students.

New Website Launched
My current website is getting old and Google has changed the rules for what websites are supposed to look like for them to "authenticate" them and put them in their search engine. Therefore I have picked a New Domain Name, designed a logo and set up a totally new website that will be "responsive" to all devices like cell phones, tablets as well as laptops and desktop computers. This meets Google's requirements and I have it authenticated and launched it on January 3, 2016. The new name is ArtCreatorsTV.com
. Here is the link for you to check it out and let me know what you think.
