In its first year, the crowd for LBX managed to totally overwhelm the air conditioning units inside the Pasadena Convention Center. If the sweaty handshakes and glistening brows were any indications, the show was off to a strong start. Stronger than I think anyone expected. Talks and demos filled to capacity long before they started. Lots of people rubbing elbows, literally and figuratively. It felt like in its first year, LBX might have already outgrown its venue.
Last year I was welcomed as a member of the faculty instructors for The Fantastic Workshop put on my the folks at 1 Fantastic Week. And I'm thrilled to announce that I'm coming back this year as a faculty instructor again!
Last year I had the pleasure of attending The Fantastic Workshop as an attendee. I brought a notebook and a list of questions with me and left with over 30 pages of incredibly insightful notes and answers to questions I didn’t know I had. It’s hard to summarize such a rich personal experience but I can say that it was revitalizing, informative, and I’m incredibly excited to be joining as an instructor this year to share that experience with you from the other side.
As an artist, entrepreneur, and educator, I am well aware of the wide spectrum of options available in the world of art education. College courses, ateliers, workshops, books, magazines, tutorial videos, local artist gatherings, conventions, discussion panels, online forums – there are so many different resources for finding your individual path to growth as an artist and creator that it can often be overwhelming to decide where to focus your energy. But I would argue that there is one important factor that can mean the difference between a positive and a negative outcome in any one of those categories: the experience.
