Mikki Senkarik and Jack White invite you to attend an Oil Painting and Art Marketing Seminar in Santa Fe.

Many of you have asked if we teach our oil painting methods or if Jack does individual art career consulting. At the insistence of our gallery director and several of our readers we have decided to do a two-day Seminar just prior to Mikki’s annual Labor Day Event at the Santa Fe Art Collector Gallery. This is a first, we’ve never done any kind of seminar like this before. Our Art Marketing and Teaching Seminar will be in the Historic Hilton Hotel. The dates are August 31st and September 1st. We can only accommodate a very limited number of artists. Please contact the gallery as soon as you know you can come. Gallery number is 505.988.5545. Any of the staff can help you.
Jack and I have come up with a bare bones seminar fee hoping any one can afford to be part of this exciting experience. We decided to charge only $300 for the seminar; this does not include travel, hotel or food. Polly, with the Santa Fe Art Collector Gallery, is working with the Hilton on a special room rate for those attending our seminar. They are setting up a contact person to handle all of the reservations. You may share a room with another artist to reduce the cost of your hotel stay. The good thing for you is our Santa Fe Art Collector Gallery will direct you to the person to make your hotel reservations as well as give you assistance in finding the best places to eat. Santa Fe is one of the finest places in the world to dine…bar none.
Don’t wait to call for your seminar seat. We do ask you please be prepared to pay for your spot when you call the gallery as spaces are limited.

Mikki Senkarik will paint a demonstration piece, explaining her marvelous and powerful double primary palette paint mixing system. She will teach her painting techniques, brushwork, the mediums she uses and the trick to cleaning brushes so they last for years. Mikki will show you step by step how she makes a painting. One of the unique things you will learn is the power of using a threshold. At the end of the seminar the demonstration painting will be auctioned off with a starting bid of one penny.

Jack White is a master artist and author of six excellent art marketing books. Many say his art marketing books are the best ever written. He will individually go over your art portfolio, giving suggestions on how to improve and market your work. Jack’s goal is to spend some private time with all artists who attend. He will teach how to get in art galleries and what to do after you are in. Some of you might want to hear him speak about how to sell by listening. There is no question, Jack is a great salesman and knows how to close without putting any pressure on the client. He will teach you how to sell like a three-year old. Think about it, have you ever been able to say NO to a sweet, little child? Jack’s Website: www.jackwhiteartist.com
What to bring? You will NOT need to bring any painting equipment. In this two-day seminar there just isn’t enough time to have you set up to paint, watch Mikki do a demonstration, have Jack talk about marketing art and get an individual review of your portfolio. Our goal is to provide the basics that will help you grow as an artist. We will teach you how to improve rather than conduct a paint along where you only learn about one painting. So bring an open heart, a note pad and something to write with. You may take photos, tape record the sessions or use a video camera. Use whatever will help you retain all of the career changing information we offer. We will also provide a packet with a stack of material covering painting secrets and the double primary palette. Our promise to you is if you make the effort to come we will give your our absolute best. Your Seminar fee will be refunded if you are not 100% satisfied.
You are free to ask questions at anytime Mikki and Jack are speaking. Remember, this seminar is for YOU. You are the only reason we are doing this. Our goal is for you to leave shaking your head in wonderment at all the things you have learned. The Seminar will be conducted both days from 9:30 till noon. We will take an hour and a half lunch break, allowing you to go to one of the neat eating spots nearby. Then start back up around 1:30 and go till 5:00. If there are any lingering questions we will stick around to make sure every one is answered.

We look forward to seeing you in Santa Fe and giving you two Texas sized Hugs, Mikki and Jack
