Hi Jenn!

So glad I just registered!

I do have a question: I'm a french mixed media artist and would love to submit my art. I heard that it's better to send you original artwork but this is not easy for me because I'm on the other side of the Atlantic and my artwork is often pretty big (large paintings) or heavy/fragile (plaster, assemblage). What is the best way for me to submit? Prints? Digital files? On a CD or through email?

Thanks if you can address this question in the webinar!

I am an artist with  day job and can not  be on-line for a webinar from 1-2 on a Thursday.  Will there be a recording available for use later?

Hi jenn, I'm from australia and wondering if you will be putting a link up of the webinar afterward, as it might be a little early in the morning for me, lol

Yes, we'll definitely address your question. I can tell you now though, that we prefer NOT to get original unsolicited art work. I'll explain why in the webinar--so get those submissions ready!

Gabi294 and viceldor--yes, go ahead and register for the class and even though you can't make it, you'll get an email with the follow-up information sent directly to you. If you don't register, the information will still be available but you won't have access as soon--and it won't be mailed right to your inbox!

Hi Jenn,

Thank you for letting us know that the information will be emailed. I didn't realize that the time was Eastern when I registered. I, too, have a day job.

Is it good to make projects in different colorways? I love using lime in my work but realize that color may not appeal to everyone. So would it be good to make a project in a "bright" colorway and an "earthtone" colorway?

I'm looking forward to the webinar.  This weekend I met three artists who are using unusual materials to make distinctive, delightful art.  I spoke at some length with each of them and took some photos of their art.  Because neither of them is comfortable with writing and I'm a writer as well as an artist, I wonder if you can use "how she does that" rather than "how I did it" articles.   Cordially, Mary Cartledgehayes

I came home from work to see todays webinar and I could not access it.  There were no special instructions prior to the session. This was disappointing.  Frustrating and a waste of my time by interrupting my work day. Too bad the download was not User friendly instead inaccessible

I'm disappointed that I couldn't get into the webinar.  Looking forward to seeing the taped version.

How do we access the taped version? I registered, but ended up having to be away from the computer this morning. I got the confirmation email, but did not see anything about how to access a taped version.

I registered for this webinar, but could not attend. I am still waiting to get an email with a link to the recorded version. I thought maybe if I clicked the link to the webinar, it might redirect me to the recorded version, but no luck.  When will this be available? Thanks!

Is the link up for the recorded webinar? I tried several times to get on the web, couldn't, so dialed in and listened on the phone. That way I couldn't see the slides, however. I've looked several place on this site, and couldn't find a link to the recorded webinar.

Hello, Jenn-

I also was not able to see the webinar live last week, but was waiting for the link to the recorded version. Have not been able to find info on the link as none was emailed. Would appreciate any help with this.

Thank you-
