NJFABAG Meeting
Wednesday
September 3, 2014
Greeting Artists!

What was is that crazy old uncle used to say when you were a kid?  "You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose...but you can't pick your friend's nose."  

This month the NJFABAG is going to put that to the test...sort of...because in September we welcome the premier Master Artist of the Nose...Margi Kanter! 

It has taken us a while, but we've finally been able to snag this amazing artist for some creative fun & learning.  Mark your calendars & make your plans now to join us on September 3 for an evening of cartoon faces & animated nose art by the artist who made it acceptable to "pick your nose" in public! 


Margi Kanter
"Cartoon Eyes & Mouths"
Join us at our September meeting and learn from the creator &  best selling author of the "Pick Your Nose" series & "Quick Picks"  face painting books.  
Margi has developed a unique & whimsical style of "bringing art to life" -- come meet this incredible artist (international instructor, yogi, eternal optimist, sage....) 

The eyes aren't just the windows to the soul...they are also one of the keys to expressing the mood of any character you paint! Follow along as Margi shows us how shape, size & placement can transform any character you paint from cute to menacing or from happy to sad with a few simple strokes of the brush.  And lets not forget that frown, grimace or grin to add even more to your design.

Paint along...learn a new technique...buy a book....grow....
(You should have your FAB or Wolfe white & black with you)

Sunny Summer Greetings!
We hope everyone is having a safe & successful summer season.  The Northern NJ Face & Body Art Guild is thrilled to have Val (formerly Lampkin) Daft as our guest artist for our August 6th meeting.  Val left a very successful face painting business behind in the UK when she moved "across the pond" but thanks to her tremendous talent and knowledge she has already reprised it here stateside.  In addition, she has become the US rep for FACE, the only international certification organization for Face Painters. Please join us in welcoming her to her first appearance at the NJFABAG and as always, leave with some new tricks & a whole lot of know how! "What is FACE?"  Better come and find out!

Val Daft
Wed, Aug 6th 7-9:15 pm
(Doors open 6:15 for set up, socializing & shopping)
 

Val will be covering a large range of topics at this month's meeting.  Be sure to arrive early so that we can get it all in!

  • The history of FACE and the importance of certification.
  • Working with Agents - tips & tricks

But she has so much more to tell us....how can we fit it all in? We're glad you asked!  
 
"HOW TO KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY!"  
DAY LONG, HANDS ON WORKSHOP:   Thursday, August 7 
9:30 A.M.-4:30 P.M. with a break for lunch.  FEE:   $125.
This class is about how to crank things up several gears to a high professional standard. Shift yourself out of being A BIRTHDAY PARTY painter, to becoming an agent's favorite, WITH CORPORATE WORK. Designs you can build on with genuine child appeal that also keeps parents happy. Fast designs that look so professional, tips worth those extra few seconds, and how and when to spend 10 minutes painting a child to keep the client happy. Simple tricks to follow to get the most out of every stroke. 

Valerie has been a professional face painter and body artist for 15 years now, in the US and the UK and is steadily booked by agents and pulls in her own work. She has also won many awards, from FABAIC Masters, to FACE Design and Photo and numerous others. A founding member of the Human Art Collective, a fine art body painting group, and a body painter for PRIDE SF at City Hall, a VIP event, booked direct by the client. 

For the first time Valerie is going to pull apart what her business is, and how it ticks. This class is unique. Known as a design master, she will teach you her rules of design, and then you will approach your own free styling with more confidence after this class.  Valerie still loves what she does and is completely engaged by it, keeping herself happy too. 

I guarantee you will not think the same about your business after this class; it's all about walking that fine line of keeping everyone happy.

Léa Selley - Festivals & Fairs
Free to Current Members
Walk-Ins warmly welcomed  $20
Léa Selley will be on hand at our March 5th NJFABAG Guild meeting to bring us into the world of painting at Festivals & Fairs.  She will share her wealth of knowledge; her do's and don'ts; and some of the designs she has perfected in festival settings.  

See Léa's post on our Facebook page.

BIO- Lea Selley

If you want to really get experience face painting then setting up a face painting booth at a festival is the perfect outlet for your creativity. I started my face painting career in living room birthday parties and then large corporate events.... but the Comic Conventions were calling my creative spirit!  I set up my first booth at the Calgary Comic Expo and for the past 5 years I try and outdo myself.  Last year I had custom back drops, tables, multiple TV monitors playing video content of me face painting, print materials, matching face painting stations, awesome bold menus.... 
It is pretty much The Ultimate Face Painting Booth!!!  Not only do I have experience setting up my own booth but I also know how to stand out when there are multiple face painting booths at the same event.   I have worked for two years at the Texas State Fair painting alongside artist such as Christina Davidson, Mark Reid, Wiser Oner, and Saskia Timmermans to name a few.  This was a fast paced, highly competitive environment - what a thrill!  Working as a painter in a booth is a great place to get work experience as you have to learn to paint fast and really well!  

I also have extensive experience body painting at adult events such as Sturgis Bike Rally working with Mark Reid, Lawren Alice and Wiser Oner, a little different environment than children's festival lineups but pretty much the same principles apply - paint hard and fast, keep the lineup happy.... and if you have fun you will definitely get a tip!

I look forward to meeting you at the No. NJ Guild and in my Workshop!

Due to a lack of expected attendance (Twist and Shout,  Kapital Kidvention) and a strong desire by members to participate in the February activity...and perhaps snack on some Valentine's treats, the next meeting has been moved to Wednesday, February 12, 2014.  6:30-9:30....bring your mirrors!


*NEW February DATE*:
Wednesday, Feb. 12
Bring your cheapie mirror, or a nice one, and you will have an opportunity to paint a mirror.  You can also paint your kit, your palette box, or your tip jar.  Those that painted last month had a great time, and are sooooo proud of the new mirrors they crafted with their own artistry.  All supplies EXCEPT MIRRORS are provided.  Guests are $10.00 to join us. 
 March Meeting

Get on the FAST TRACK with Lea Selley, The Tattooed Lady, from Canada, here on a US tour.  This high energy lady has done it all, and has all kinds of tips and trick to share.    Her graffiti Eyes are clearly for any age group, especially those tweens and teens too cool for face paint. Awesome YOU TUBE videos and products!  A  hands on Workshop, Thursday 3/6, including supplies is available for $125.
April Meeting
Wednesday April 2
GIna Niemi of Epic Body Art will teach us all about Fast Festival Faces, in preparation for the warm weather.  She will offer hands on demonstration of the awesome Chameleon brand.  Followed by an all-day workshop that answer every fair question you might have.

We give out prizes, have contests and often raffle off convention registrations and gifts from vendors.  BUT you must be a member to win.  Non-members pay $20 per class for each meeting, unless other fees are specified.  But to join, it is only $50 per year, and your membership runs for 12 full months!  Why don't you join today? Lastly, you get the privilege of shopping from our vendor at 20-30% off of Mehron and Wolfe products.

Sincerely,

JANUARY 2014

January 2014



Seasons Greetings Artists!
We hope you had a joyous holiday season and are ready to hit 2014 full steam.   To help get the ball rolling, the No. NJ Face & Body Art Guild will be having not one, but TWO meetings in January.   Please read on for all of the details -- 2014 will be bringing some very exciting things -- be sure to JOIN US! 
Sub-contractor or Employee?

 

We are kicking off 2014 with an important legal topic that impacts all of us!
Do you sometimes hire other painters/entertainers?  Do you do contracted work for other painters?  Do you know if you are a sub-contractor or an employee?

As some companies in our face painting world are finding out -- the NJ Dept of Labor is watching small businesses carefully.  Knowing the difference between subs & employees is just one of the things we all need to understand to keep our businesses on the "up & up".  
 
January 7th, attorney Jacqueline E. Crosby, Esq. will give a presentation on the legal issues related to independent contractors versus employees. Jacqueline Crosby, Esq. is a New Jersey employment and family law attorney licensed in New Jersey since 2007.  Jacqueline founded Crosby Legal Seminars in 2009 to educate the public about various areas of the law in addition to assisting business owners in the areas of hiring and employment law compliance.  
 
Jacqueline's contact information for private consultations: email: crosbylegal@att.net, phone: 800-584-0963. 
 
Dress Up Your Mirror!!

 

It's not ALL business this month!
Our founder & president Diane Spadola has a fun project lined up for the beginning of our Jan 7 meeting.  

We all carry a mirror to show the kids their transformations -- why not make the BACK of the mirror exciting for the rest of the crowd?

Diane will be supplying all of the paints. brushes and samples of designs.   
You supply the mirror (must have plastic backing) & the sense of adventure.
   Please check out Margaret Mauthe's Facebook for more designs.   


We hope to see you all at our TUESDAY Jan 7th meeting...and again on
Wednesday, Jan 22nd for the always entertaining MARK REID!!!  Lets kick off 2014 the right way!!!
 
Sincerely,
 
Jamie Saks

SEPTEMBER 2013

Great meeting this week with prizes and fun raffles!!!
Wednesday Sept 18th 
Shop at 6:15, and class is at 7 p.m. 
We're going Stencil CraZy with "Z"!

NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR ALL!  

Please know that on September 18, we are going to have some very special announcements.  Several of them have to do with FABATV, and one I will share with you now.  It is the Test Drive for FABATV, which allows you to check it out by subscribing FREE for the day.  This appeared in the NEW Illusions magazine this month. Be sure to check out who is available, and which classes you want to take on that day, then clear your calendar, and play all day with your paints and MASTER Instructors.  it's FREE, without obligation, and you will love it, as I do.
Then the next deal, will be announced at the meeting, and it has to do with ways that the GUILD can earn Silly Farm Gift Cards, by encouraging our members to subscribe to FABATV.   So if you decide to buy an annual subscription, make sure you tell FABATV that Diane Spadola sent you, and you will help get the program rolling.  All benefits from additional sign ups will go the GUILD.  

Lastly, just like last year, I have gotten a FREE REGISTRATION to Kapital Kidvention to raffle off.  This year's Global Registration Day is in October, so this year, we are doing our raffle early, so you don't have to sign up through the web site for the convention, IF YOU WIN!   And somebody has to win, why can't it be you?  

Q:  what do we have to do to win? 

A:  I'm so glad you asked!  1)You have to be a member in good standing, as of September 18.  
    2) you have to be present on September 18 to win.
   3) You have to fill out a short entry form with one question on it, and your name
   4) You have to agree to some minor stipulations about videotaping one or two face painting classes at the convention...it's easy and I can show you how.  
NOTE:  preday and post convention classes are at your own expense, as is the hotel, but I am going, so you can share with me, if you like.  

Last but not least, I am putting together the calendar for instructors for the 2014 YEAR and it will be the best ever.  If you have a request for someone specific...make sure you tell me.  For right now, I hope to have Lea Selley, Pam Trent, Erika Harrison, and perhaps a photography instructor......Let me know what will make 2014 YOUR BEST GUILD YEAR EVER!!!!!

The Magic of Rainbow Cakes- Next Meeting:  January 9, 7 p.m.
Dear Member,

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 9, with shopping at 6:15 p.m. and instruction to start at 7 p.m. Please join us at the United Methodist Church, 903 S. Beverwyck Rd., Parsippany, NJ to learn how to use these fun blended cakes to enhance your artistry,  increase your speed, and  WOW your clients with MAGIC!
  


Original Artwork by Marcela Murad and Heather Green









                   Objectives
If you paint side by side with another artist, you have a chance to discover new techniques and tricks.  At the holiday party we discussed rainbow cakes and learned that each of us may have a different way of applying them, to make a great design.  


So, four members agreed to demo their techniques for your benefit.  Join Jamie, Diane, Michelle and Patti as they teach you the ins and outs of rainbow cakes.  This is a HANDS-ON Class and you need at least one rainbow cake, a medium round brush, a sponge and perhaps black or white, or both, to participate.  Bring your notebook and your camera.  

 

"These are a few of my favorite things..." Game -  
or "I can't live without....."
How many times have you been grateful for that one thing in your kit which makes you a better artist?  Bring it to this meeting!  Share your tool with others by giving us a chance to try it too.  We are playing a great game this evening, where you hold your tool/makeup/stencil/brush, and the rest of us have to use it to make an incredible design.  No pressure, everyone is working together!  This should be fun, instructive and VERY Creative.  SHARING is what sets us apart from other industries...so be prepared to participate in this fun creative game, and everyone is a WINNER!a

We have lots to discuss, dates, officer positions, and plans for the new year.  If you need to renew your membership, you may do so at this meeting.  Please join us.  Non-members pay $15 to attend.  Non-member young artists pay $10 to join in.

Then the next day; Friday, June 22:  Diane will be hosting a workshop at Giggles, entitled:  Jay Bautista, tribal secrets unleashed!  $125 per person for 9:30-5 p.m. 

This workshop will cover details on the elements of T-4 tribal design and also the incorporation of these lines into the animal shapes that Jay is so famous for.  And that's only in the morning!  Then the afternoon will be about Jay's fantastic eye designs done with background blending, black and white lines, tear drops and dots.  His faces take less than a minute to paint, but have crystal clear line work and detail.  Let this master show you how.  Lunch is on your own. 

 

Jay painted for years for Enjoy Your Face in Orlando, and only comes up north a couple of times a year.  Don't miss him and his rare ability to make even the novice, a better painter!  

 

Mail your check for $125 to Diane at 11 Chelsea Drive, Randolph, NJ  07869.  Seats are limited.  

 

Sincerely,

 

Diane Spadola
