I just wanted to touch base with you because I have been really busy transforming my career into an electronic version of myself so that I can continue to share the world of art, Clever Corvid style, with you! I have some sharing to do:
I have set up a “school” on a new platform called Teachable. Here, I will be posting workshops for all ages and skill levels, including painting party style paintings. Some of the workshops are free, and some have a minimal fee. I have added the northern lights workshop as this is the one that most people enjoy the most. I am working on including the galaxy workshop, and will continue to add workshops until we can be together again in real time! Sign up is simple, requiring an email address and your own password. Here is the link:
If you would like a certain workshop to be added to Teachable, I will try my best to accommodate you. Just let me know what you are interested in doing keeping in mind that I will not teach how to do a painting that is found on the internet, because that is someone else’s artwork. J
I do have some canvases available for sale; 8x10’s are $5 each, 11x14’s are $7.50 each. Supplies are limited so I will allow two canvases per person for sale. Sound fair?
MY WEBSITE IS ROCKIN' AND ROLLIN'
I would also like to share my website with you. You can find it at www.theclevercorvidsfarmhousestudio.com
I have been teaching myself how to set up a website and blog FROM SCRATCH. From scratch, guys!! It’s been a crazy journey and really difficult because I do not consider myself to be very technologically advanced (that’s my son’s department! Lol) but I did it! What does that mean to you? It means that if you subscribe to my newsletter, you get access to my “freebie” resource library that is full of stuff just for you like great family recipes, games, art card printables, colouring pages, music playlists and so.much.more. For real! Here’s the sign up form for that if you’re interested in how the farm has become a part of my creative world and how I have been sharing that through my blogs: https://theclevercorvidsfarmhousestudio.com/contact-us/subscribe-to-email/
BACK IN ACTION WITH RED BUBBLE
I also wanted to let you know that I dug a bit deep and checked out the manufacturing processes for all of the products I receive from Red Bubble. I have not been sharing any of my Red Bubble products since the beginning of the pandemic, simply because I want to keep my customers as safe as possible. With that safety comes knowing where your products come from. Red Bubble is known for having various items printed in different parts of the world. As you will see from the chart I am providing, many of the items are printed in Canada! Pretty cool, eh?
I also wanted to let you know that I will be doing a major clean sweep of my Red Bubble site, mainly eliminating some work, sorting my art into different categories and adding new work, like the fiddlehead collage that I recently finished. Now that I know you can get clothing, posters, stickers, bath mats, greeting cards, post cards, phone cases, mugs, and notebooks from a company in Canada, I am happy to share Red Bubble with you again. Here's the link to my Red Bubble shop. Thanks for checking it out. I appreciate it!
OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS
Finally, I wanted to let you know that I am available for commission work as well. You know me well enough to know my art style, my flexibility with technique and art supply usage, and work one on one with you to create something that you will love forever. If you have an idea in the back of your mind, send me a message and we’ll work collaboratively to bring your idea to life!
Thanks for taking the time to read this letter, my friends. FEEL FREE TO FORWARD THIS LETTER TO YOUR CONTACT LIST AS WELL! I appreciate it. I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. I am sending virtual vibes of happiness and creativity!
