The Revere Academy will offer its first webinar class, in conjunction with the 2012 Masters Symposium class, “Prepare for Success.”  This class is designed to give artists the skills they need to succeed in running their own businesses.

This is a special opportunity for jewelers and artists all over the country to study with Harriete Estel Berman, a professional artist and creator of the Professional Guidelines. The class is open to artists in all media and students at all levels can participate in this class without the costs of travel and lodging that would normally be incurred to attend a class in person at the Revere Academy, in downtown San Francisco.

Webinar participants will be able to view the instructor and Powerpoint presentations in real time via their computer, as will as submit their own questions and images for review by the instructor, much like the students who attend the class in person. Because this is the first time Revere has offered a webinar class, there is a special, one-time introductory price for the class of just $79! For more details, visit www.revereacademy.com/classes/symposium/prepare-for-success/. Webinar participants are required to have a computer with a high-speed internet connection. To register for the webinar, call 415-391-4179.

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.
