Over the past 8 1/2 years, we have striven to bring you some of the best and brightest artist/instructors available to Cabin Fever and Master Class Camp.  Cabin Fever, in its 9th year is no different and once again, a premier event offering workshops from:  LISA PAVELKA, MAUREEN CARLSON, DAYLE DOROSHOW, NANCY ENNIS, LISA HANEY, LINDLY HAUNANI, ANKE HUMPERT, DOREEN KASSEL, ROBERT LIU, JANA LEHMANN, ANN and KAREN MITCHELL, NAN ROCHE, LYNNE ANN SCHWARZENBERG, and EUGENA TOPINA.  Registration continues for all attendees – click here to register.

Some have asked about the change in format.  The fact is, we listened to what our attendees were requesting – longer classes from more instructors.  The new format offers more full-day workshops and fewer 4-hour workshops with additional class time at a lower fee – bringing attendees more bang for their buck!  If you have questions about the format, just write us – we’ll answer your inquiries as quickly as possible.

Lisa Pavelka, who has brought the polymer community many useful tools and techniques, will be teaching several workshops and will be honored with the Creative Pioneer and Innovator Award for her contributions over the years. Last year’s honoree, Maureen Carlson, will present the award and will also be teaching workshops at the event.  Click here to find out more on the workshops being offered.

February 2016’s 9th Annual Creative Arts Fest – Cabin Fever – is going to rock it once again. There is no other event like it in the US – one where you can choose from 16 talented and highly diverse artist/instructors.

For those who have been patiently waiting for registration to open, we are almost there!  We’ve hit more than a few bumps in the road along the planning way, but it will be worth the wait.

We’ve modified the schedule somewhat to accommodate those who prefer the longer full-day workshops, but also have some 4-hour workshop opportunities and restructured the payment options as well, so we’ll have something for everyone!

Instructors include:

Honoree, LISA PAVELKA, MAUREEN CARLSON, DAYLE DOROSHOW, NANCY ENNIS, NATALIA GARCIA de LEINEZ AND DANIEL TORRES, LISA HANEY, LINDLY HAUNANI, ANKE HUMPERT, DOREEN KASSEL, ROBERT LIU, JANA LEHMANN, ANN and KAREN MITCHELL, NAN ROCHE, LYNNE ANNE SCHWARZENBERG, EUGENA TOPINA, and LAURA TABAKMAN.    Join us on this inspirational journey.

Registrations opens this weekend!

Have you seen what Tracy Holmes has been up to? WOW!  She’s got a great article in the Summer issue of The Polymer Arts Magazine AND she will be debuting her new colour cards during her 2-day workshop at right here in Maryland during Master Class Camp in July.  Tracy’s color and Dan Cormier’s Matrix Cane workshop sounds like a terrific combination!

Artist, author, and designer, Jana Lehmann, will be joining us at Master Class Camp for the first time in July.   I have been drooling over her work which used these graphic patterns in the most unusual ways.  Imagine this patchwork of graphic tiles in bright color blends!  WOW! Check out her Flickr site for more eye candy.

We want to make this a great experience for Jana and all instructors teaching, so if you haven’t registered yet, wait no longer.

Workshop information is available HERE and online registration is available HERE.  Don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have them. See you in 1 1/2 months!





BUILDING YOUR WORK FROM POLYMER SCRAP AND METAL

STILL TIME TO REGISTER FOR MASTER CLASS CAMP IN JULY.

Eugena Topina, originally from Russia, has used her science background in planning and creating new and innovative multi-functional tools for use with polymer and other media.  The stamps, created from scrap polymer and small strips of metal, are exquisitely detailed with simple, elegant lines.  She does not teach very often and we are lucky to have her living here in Maryland.

This will be her first time teaching at Master Class Camp and she is thrilled to be among some of the other talented instructors.  Take a look at some of her other work and you will see the value in learning from her.

Workshop descriptions can be found here and online registration can be done here.

 





GETTING YOUR WORK TO WHERE YOU WANT IT TO BE…ALWAYS LEARNING AND GROWING

15 05 2015

We can see examples all over the internet of work from those who are just starting out (where we were all at one time) to those who have moved their work to the next level and above and are considered “professional” artists.  The Master Class Camp in July is not meant to intimidate, but to help you grow in your art.

One artist whose work I’ve seen grow and change so much over the last few years is Doreen Gay-Kassel.  She is my friend but also a very talented artist who has continued to amaze and surprise me with the extent of her work.  She will be teaching a 2-day workshop on this new technique in July. You can see more on her 2-day workshop here https://polymerclayfests.files.wordpress.com/…/mcc-2015… and REGISTER online herehttps://creativeartsfests.wufoo.com/forms/znmjqnl176o6ft/
