AFAC 2010 Conference For Artists, March 6-7th

Metro Hall, Toronto

We are very excited to announce that the 2010 Conference Agenda is now
available and it's double the size of last year's conference and art show!

We have increased the conference from 1 to 2 days and we've doubled the
number of qualified expert speakers giving conference presentations,
demos and workshops - all are packed with valuable information and
advice artists need about the latest art materials, techniques and
guidance for successful personal and professional development, including:

- understanding the new acrylic paints;
- encaustic painting demos;
- understanding pigments in watercolour;
- abstract techniques using oil paint and cold wax;
- demo with water-based oil and palette knife;
- pastel portrait and pet drawing;
- crystalline and brayer paper demonstration;
- painting and drawing with Japanese paper;
- cartooning and it's life lessons;
- sculpting in stone and wood;
- creating special effects in your photography;
- when to use good stretchers; and
- framing ideas - the finishing touches to make your work sell.

There are business and professional development sessions about:
- new art history perspectives;
- how to become a professional artist;
- how to prepare an effective Artists Statement;
- how to get more media exposure as an artist;
- improve your public speaking: how to talk about your art so people
- how to market your art without selling your soul;
- how to market yourself effectively as an artist or a photographer
using the Internet; and,
- new techniques to help keep you thinking creatively as an artist.
