Delegating, travel & super heroes

It's that time of year again, when most of my work time (and a sizable chunk of my other time) is taken up by planning the fall shows/workshops/conferences.  Thankfully, due to having hired wonder girl, I am able to delegate my tasks and not completely loose my marbles.  As much as I have enjoyed giving workshops, and working with artists to hone their acrylic skills and find their voice in it's expression, I am feeling a gathering sense of relief as I pass this task on to some very capable, inspiring and talented teachers.

This fall I will be giving a couple of workshops in California, at the always a blast, Learning & Product Expo: Art! in Pasadena.  Dates for the workshops are now up on the website.  I will also be giving one or two workshops at CHA this year (Jan. 2011 Los Angeles), but these have yet to be confirmed.

Beyond these few workshops, my professional path redirects me, and I take on the roles of Tri-Art Acrylic Education Program Director, Writer (book three is taking shape!), and Factory Girl (this role is too complicated to describe with any accuracy or consistency).  If you are looking for workshops with a similar style and content to the ones I have given in the past, there are will be a whole new string of them being offered, primarily in Canada, in the coming year.  Look for them on the Tri-Art website.

There is a lot of travel in store for me again this year, so if you are interested in booking a lecture or book signing, let me know!  At the TAAEP (Tri-Art Acrylic Ed. Program) we are designing a series of New Acrylics Books related workshops, some exciting plans simmering in that pot right now, stay tuned!


  1. I'm loving the new look to your blog Rheni! Looks GREAT!!!

  2. Hurray for delegation. And I agree, the blog looks fantastic.

  3. Thanks guys, glad you like it. I'm experiencing a creative burnout period, and it's good to continue to get positive feedback, as it might just be the thing that can lure me back into the fray.

  4. Fingers crossed, then. Hate to see anybody suffering from burnout like that.
