Welcome to Northern NJ Face and Body ART Guild
Shawna Del Real -- cancelled
Unfortunately, Shawna did not get enough signups in her classes in July to pay her travel to the East Coast. As we have discussed, the workshop fees finance the travel for our instructors, since the guild does not pay for their transportation. Without workshop fees, there is no way for them to get to our area, unless they are coming for another reason. (most aren't). The topic for the July Meeting will be "Bring On The Bling" and members will have a chance to make their own bling cluster, win some bling, buy some supplies for making clusters, and win prizes that may or may not be related to bling. So get your BLING research going, since we are going to have a fun game, where you provide the bling trivia answers!!!!

IMPORTANT DATE CHANGES and A LOOK AHEAD ....
July: New Date: Shawna Del Rea will offer to us a class in extreme beauty tips and facial aesthetics on Wednesday, July 8 at the Rescue Squad, and then a one day class, Thursday July 9: Time TBA “The Art of Beauty, a fusion of makeup and face painting workshop” Then on Friday, July 10, Shawna is doing a Sugar Skulls Workshop Time TBA followed by the Guild Annual Pot Luck Barbecue. Come and Join US!
August: Tal Thompson of Art Factory and Ybody Glitter Tattoos, will be here on August 5 for a marketing class at the Guild Meeting. Then Thursday, August 6, 1-4:30 and 6-9:30 p.m. is HENNA DAY! Come learn all you can about this beautiful and relaxing art form!
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 Posted August 9, 2013
