DIY Traveling Show and Marketplace with SK

I'm Goin' to DIY Painters Boot Camp

Dagsboro, Delaware
Three intensive days of workshops, learning, teaching, giving and taking...
My kind of fun.

We will split up into companies of six to eight. Each company has been given weeks of challenges preparatory to the actual event. Each challenge comes with time intensive research and labor. And must be accomplished and reported by a certain deadline to comply.

A few of these challenges have been:

Pick a team captain and a team name, start a private Facebook group for your team.

Create a Make and Take craft for the Saturday Market Place. You will be teaching your craft to a group of thirty. You have one hour to have this Saturday craft class finish.
We came up with a Pumpkin Bar. Pallet pumpkins would be made and brought to camp. All  kinds of bedknobs, buttons, piano parts and broomsticks, you get the idea, will be attached to each crafters pumpkin after she individually paints her pumpkin. 
I am delighted, and a bit taken aback when my designs were selected. SK Sartell, Custom Artist.  Work selected for Give and Take Market.
Create a social media promo advertising your team make & take using Canva or PicMonkey, Photoshop. Include- Team Name, photo(s) of your project, date & dress of the event and convey the message that $10 admission buys a whole DIY day experience.
Learning to post Facebook updates on a schedule.

Create a LIVE Facebook Video and post. This was so difficult. It's hard to look at frankly.
NOTE: Remember, these challenges would come to us on a spur of the moment and have a heavy deadline...Debi is fierce, I tell ya.

The entire point is to make sure each of us campers are up to date on every valuable tool which can help us market our individual skills. Brilliant, Scheming woman. Debi is determined make us more valuable and knowledgeable by start of camp. I am so LOST. Learning curve is tough, but doable.

As the days flash by, each new challenge forces us to step out of our little comfort bubble. AND get to know our company mates. Who each have amazing stuff to add to the mix of success.

This is the place to be for like minded people. A once in a lifetime chance to mingle with a few of the country's best artists. 

Yup, that's me right there. Going to travel across the entire country to breathe some crazy artist air.
