If you haven’t heard, we’re celebrating the new year with an Art & Soul sale. Each week, for the next few months, we will feature an instructor and the classes they will be teaching at upcoming events. During that week only, if you sign up for one of their classes you will receive a 20% discount on the total cost of the class. This is a great opportunity to try a new instructor, delve into a technique that might appeal to you, or just venture out of that “comfortable art” box. Register for the class online, as usual, and we will credit your account, accordingly. This week our featured instructor is Stephanie Rubiano. She’s teaching three classes in Vegas, all of which look very exciting, can’t wait.

Deadline for registration is Friday, January 1st. Available for new class registration only. Not acceptable to transfer from previously registered class in order to receive discount.

Stephanie Rubiano

Stephanie is a mixed-media artist who creates dimensional works within shadow boxes, using a variety of uncommon objects. Her love of nature and fascination with Victorian photography is apparent through her combination of antique photographs and real butterfly or moth wings. Bits of text illustrate her irreverence for straight-laced Victorian society and lend a whimsical air to her pieces. Stephanie’s inner science geek is assuaged by her writing the scientific name of each butterfly or moth specimen on the back of the box next to her signature. 

Stephanie teaches sold-out workshops at national art retreats and has had work in past mediums shown in galleries and boutiques across the United States.  She is an emerging artist on the art festival scene. In October of 2008 she participated in her first nationally-ranked art festival, the Bayou City Art Festival in Houston, TX and placed 2ndoverall out of 300 national artists. Her work has graced the covers of magazines and books, as well as been the subject of articles and how-to projects.
