January Guild Happenings

Greetings Painters & Happy Holidays to All!
The Northern New Jersey Face & Body Art Guild is kicking off the new year with a new master instructor! We've been able to reel in the one & only Christina Davison for our January meeting.

Please note many of the meetings this year have altered dates to accommodate schedules so that we can bring you the best of the best for your learning pleasure. (Also note that the January meeting is NOT at the Rescue Squad. Details are below!)

***MONDAY, January 12th, 2015
Doors Open 6:15 - Demo Starts @ 7:00
NOTE LOCATION CHANGE FOR THIS MEETING!!!!
Fitness Factory (same strip mall as where Giggles Play Station used to be)
350 Route 46
Rockaway, NJ 07866
Free to current members, guests warmly welcomed for $20

Thanks to the East Coast Convention, Christina (Amadazzle) Davison will be in from Texas and is making her way to the NJFABAG meeting for an evening all things horses. (Full face horse, cheek brony, pony side design, and side face zebra)
Anyone familiar with Christina's work knows that her animals are A-MAZ-ING! She's had several FabaTV classes posted that include just a small portion of what she creates. (Its how I overcame my fear of painting the dreaded monkey!)

They may look complicated, but Christina is a veteran festival painter -- she can crank these babies out -- and you can too! (Mark Reid will tell you after working the Texas State Fair with her, he redesigned how he paints the muzzles on his famous cats....and the panda on his festival board...Christina's!)
Be sure to come to the meeting & take advantage of having such an incredible talent right in your own backyard. (And she's staying to do a workshop the next day....you wont want to miss it!!)

IMPORTANT DATE CHANGES and A LOOK AHEAD ....

January:  Our meeting is moved to Monday, January 12, 2015, 7 p.m. at the Rescue Squad, with workshops to follow at the Bella Faccia Studio on Tuesday January 13.  Christina Davidson: AMADAZZLE, Amarillo, Texas

February:  Our meeting is moved to accommodate Kapital Kidvention and will be held Wednesday February 11, 2015 at the Rescue Squad is Friends and Family Night:  FREE to all attendees.    Our own Guild members will present what they learned at the conventions in the previous three months, followed by Open Jamming.

March:  Pashur is coming the second week, March 11 to the Guild on Wednesday and doing Party Caricatures Class on Thursday March 12 at Bella Faccia Studio.

April:  Fresh off the season 1 of Skin  Wars: Sean Avram is coming for the second week of April:   Face painting at the Guild on April 8, and then body painting on Thursday. If interest is there, he will do a reptiles class on Friday, April 9.

May: Donna Nowak, Airbrush Master and maker of PROAIIR and DIPS will be to our meeting on May 6, then a follow on airbrush boot camp for the two days to follow:  Thursday May 7 for beginnners who do not have or haven't used their equipment, and Friday May 8, for those who have used equipment for tattoos only--take it up a notch and earn more!


This year we are going to experiment with some different timing on the workshops.  When possible to do so, Teachers will split their one day workshop into two half day workshops ($75 each) and they will be offered in the afternoon (1-4:30 p.m.), and then in the evening (6-9:30 p.m.) on the designated day.  Afternoon participants will receive a reduced price if they stay into the evening, and have dinner.  In this way, we can pick up those that have full time jobs, and those students who might be able to take a half day off, but not a full day.  It also give the instructor a chance to do some of their own work, in the morning after the guild.

Hello fellow guild members:

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy being part of this group and meeting all of you. If you attended this past guild meeting you had a real treat! Freehand glitter tattoos are awesome. I had almost given up on my glitter tattoo business due to all the personal kits one can get and I found it a hassle to switch between the glitter and face~painting.

Now doing it free hand it will take the same amount of time and wow. The effects are splendid. Thanks to Diane for bringing Tal Thompson to NJ. And Kerry, Your work was magnificent. Thank you so much for sharing it!

Sincerely, with smiles and sparkles too,

Corinne
