new online class this summer!
I have been hard at work on my online class for this summer and I can not even begin to tell you how excited I am about it! it is coming together wonderfully and is loaded with techniques and projects! I think I have worked harder on this class than I did when I wrote my books, and if you have read those you know how full of information those are!

Well you are in for a treat with this class!! If you sign up we'll be spending 12 weeks together, making art, learning techniques, creating projects -- you'll come away refreshed and loaded with new inspiration and ideas! Think of it as an arty summer camp for your creative soul!

This online class isn't just a blog with a password. It's Audio, Video, Slide Shows, Handouts, Chats, Message Boards. I will be there with you to guide you along and it will be a truly interactive experience. I can tell you that gals at Big Picture Scrapbooking REALLY know how to put a high tech online class together and you will not be disappointed!

Full details are below and to register, click here!!

This 12-week class allows you inside access into artist Claudine Hellmuth's in home studio. Claudine will provide inspiration and a lifetime's supply of mixed-media techniques to incorporate in your scrapbooking layouts, journals and mixed media projects. The techniques you learn will build on each other and culminate in artistic projects, including: art, home d├ęcor, fashion and of course scrapbooking!

Claudine has traveled the world and is now @home and online at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Join Claudine and her kitties for detailed instruction and product explanation, delivered in colorful handouts and slide presentations so that even the newest artist will feel comfortable; and if you've been working with paint for a long time, there'll be many techniques that are new to you! Come get your hands a little dirty and experiment with new products and tools. Let Claudine guide you through each new technique and you'll leave this class feeling like a pro!

You can sign up for the class and then decide what you want or need to purchase from there. I'll work with you to make it work!
  • How long does the class stay active for those who registered? Students will have "forever access" to the class materials, which means that class will end Sept 28th (so there will no longer be teacher interaction), but students can go back at any point in time (as long as BPS exists) and access the class materials, gallery and message board! WOW!
  • I am not a scrapbooker: don't worry this class like all my other classes (and books) are heavily technique based. You'll be learning versatile techniques that you can use if you paint, collage, journal, create altered books or scrapbook and more!!

Claudine, this class sounds super. Question: with summer vacations coming up, will the class videos, etc. be available after the 12 weeks in case we need extra time due to being away, etc. Thanks!
Woohoo! I've been waiting for this to open registration - just signed up and so excited! I'm so glad you are doing something online for those of us int'l and not near a big city you visit :) Thanks!
Annie -- good question! I asked and here's the answer! I also updated this blog post with all the same info as below:

Students will have "forever access" to the class materials, which means that class will end Sept 28th (so there will no longer be teacher interaction), but students can go back at any point in time (as long as BPS exists) and access the class materials, gallery and message board! WOW!
I've signed up Claudine. I'm so excited. I can't wait!
Hi Claudine! I just signed up -- cannot wait! (This is funny, I can't spell and I typed "singed" up at first, but that's true, too!)

Two questions for you!

1. Is there a 'kit' packed up online to purchase the materials needed instead of purchasing individually?

2. If not all products are needed, and we will decide what we need, by the time we get them, wouldn't there have been a week or more into the course already?

Thanks! :)
A Beautiful life - there isn't a kit per se but there are links in the supply lists where you can purchase at a discount.

The supply list is every little tiny thing I am using in class. I think easily you can get by for the first little bit of class with paints and medium and see what you might have already on hand that you can use.

don't forget that the class stays up "forever" so once registered you can go at your own pace so the class never moves along leaving anybody behind!
I'll be spending my Summer At Home with you! Thanks for doing the class. I've gotten most of the supplies, but have a few questions--what is a combover comb? Does it say that on package? and what is 4x4 album used for...can we get 6x6 binder album instead? I'm thinking BoBunny.
Your Mystic Paper class just wasn't enough for me and I won't pay for CE so this class is best value and option! Hurry up July!

this class sounds great!

I'm not a scrapbooker, but I'm a mixed media artist and illustrator.

I'm working on new ideas but I feel I need some "encouragement" to be more motivated.

And I definitely love your work!

If I will be able to fit the course in my budget, you will find me ready to start on the 1st of July
... From Rome, Italy!

Thanks for this opportunity!
With love,
I so wish I could take this class but just can't do it. I hope everyone has a great time and I know they will learn lots. I have been an admirer of yours for many years dating back to the days when you taught at Art and Soul, ArtFest, etc.
