Dana has been advertising on his IG page that he and Steve are offering classes together. Interesting persons can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Doesn't appear as though COVID has affected their schedule--next date is 20-22 August in Sterling, CO. Also doesn't look like this is a BRI sanctioned event.
Ian_Adkins I spoke to Dana on Instagram the other day; I did his season 5 painting and tagged him in it and he was very kind!! I would love to fly to Denver for their class next weekend but unfortunately, getting the time off isn’t really possible right now. I do hope to make it one day though!
Oh that’s so cool! I didn’t know Steve was teaching! I’d love to take a class someday.
Lilikins He kinda dropped off the face of the earth after his dad died, but has reemerged in the last couple years. What happened during that period and why Steve and Dana left BRI is a big mystery. I'd take the class just to find out why.
I had emailed Dana last winter about courses. I was considering driving to Indiana but my work schedule wouldn't allow it. Then COVID started. If they are offering something closer to me I'd definitely go.
Muncie's a fun little town. My wife worked there for a couple years. I somehow forgot The Joy of Painting was at WIPB, even though I did some guest programs at WIPR. I've been kicking myself since. WIPB and the Minnestrista both have original Bobs on display.
happylittletreeshhi They do seem to change up the locations a bit. Quick flip through his Instagram shows IN, TN, and NJ, in addition to CO. You're down south, right? Drop him another line. Savannah would be gold mine with the art school there. (Not that they're interested in monetary gain, of course.)
Ian_Adkins Oh, I relish the opportunity for travel, I just already have my vacations booked for the year; I’ll have to plan ahead next year and make sure I get to one. I live 45 minutes north of Savannah in Hilton Head Island, so Savannah would be a dream come true!
happylittletreeshhi Savannah's a fun town, missus had a conference there in 2010 and I tagged along. I would be tempted to reprise my visit if they did something there. Coronalime permitting, of course.
Fresh off Instagram, new dates for Steve and Dana's workshops, in Winchester, Indiana, 21-24 October and 28-31 October. Steverossdanajester at Gmail. A little closer than Colorado, to those of us on the east coast.
If anyone attends one of their workshops I'm sure people here would be interested in a write up!
