Woohoo!! Only 13 more days until I hit the road and head to the MAX convention in St Louis! I’m super excited to be road trippin’ with an entourage of Minnesota painty friends, and to be teaching three convention classes AND one post-convention class! I’ll also be running a table in the vendor room. If you’re coming to MAX, be sure to swing by and say hi! I’ve only ever attended ONE convention within the US and that was right in my home state of MN, so I’m super excited to meet so many artists I’ve only known via Facebook! Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram (@paintertainmentdotcom) as I’ll be posting pics of our adventures in St Louis!
Here are some descriptions of my convention classes:

Thursday, April 20, 2:00-4:00: Window Painting Post-Convention Class
This class is a post-convention class, so it is NOT included in your convention registration. The cost is $75, and space is limited, though I still have just a couple spots left as of the writing of this post, if you’d like to snag one! $75 will be a STEAL for all the information you will get in this class! You can easily make that back plus a lot more on one window job. I am not wasting your time having you practice painting on glass…you all know how to paint with a brush, and you have windows at home. In THIS class I will teach you all of the in’s and out’s of window painting, and how I turned my covid pivot turned into an incredibly lucrative addition to my services. I will walk you through the process of painting windows, but will also tell you what supplies you’ll need (and how little you can get away with when you start out), what to watch out for, tricks of the trade, how to remove window painting, and how to keep painting windows in the winter months. I will give you a step by step plan to take yourself from never having painted a window to soliciting window jobs in your area, marketing tips, and additional learning resources. I’ll even with you my own window job contract, and the rates I was paid for the windows I have done to date. If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of getting into window painting, do NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!! I will be boiling down everything I’ve learned the hard way over the past 3 years into 2 hours of gold for you!
If you are just thinking about this class or are planning to register, be sure to connect with me in my Facebook event page where I will be communicating with those who are interested! Once you register for the class, you will be invited to a private group for class attendees ONLY, where we can share our progress into the super fun world of window painting.
