Today’s JumpstARTer is my friend Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. I can’t say enough wonderful things about her – she is an amazing artist, awesome teacher and I love her personality. Spending time with Julie is the best 🙂 And therefore…I would love to share with you some time with Julie today!
Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is a mixed media artist and painter. She lives in New York City in a small apartment with a big art studio. She has had artwork and articles published in multiple books & magazines (including her column in Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine), hosts the TV show Scrapbook Soup (PBS) and the Adventures in Arting podcast, designs products for art-making, and blogs six days-a-week at balzerdesigns.typepad.com . Her yet-to-be-titled book will be released by Interweave Press in 2013.

But wait – there is more- Julie also has a giveaway for you!!!
“You can win a seat in one (your choice) of the twelve workshops I’m offering as part of “Getting Started”: a collection of online classes intended to educate and empower. “Getting Started” is all about getting you started with a wide variety of mixed media techniques and supplies. I have chosen a collection of my most-used supplies and techniques to share with you. These are the tips, tricks, and materials that I use virtually every day in the studio!
Each mini class is hosted on a private password-protected blog and your classroom access never expires.
As the moniker “Getting Started” indicates, these lessons are intended to cover the basics of each topic for those with little to no experience with the topic. Lessons are always a mixture of technical information (why this glue, why the paint works like that, etc.) mixed with my own personal taste and tips on how/why I use certain products and/or techniques. From design principles to gesso, there’s a class to answer all your questions.”
Here is what you have to do in order to be able to win this giveaway:
