Each year, the Show brings together more than 100 U.S. and international artisans and dealers, including a number of I.G.M.A. Artisans and Fellows. They offer collectors unique, well-crafted 1-inch, 1/2-inch, and 1/4-inch scale miniatures from around the world.

2014 Good Sam Academy Workshops

Here are three more of the workshops that will be offered at this year's Good Sam Academy. The classes will be held from Oct. 13-17 at our Morgan Hill, CA facility, immediately following the Show. The workshop space is divine--airy, big and light. It is a fabulous opportunity to learn new techniques from miniature masters in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. Come and join the camaraderie.

17th Century Still Life Oil Painting. Instructor Johannes Landman, IGMA Artisan.

Upholstered Wingback Chair. Instructor Kari Bloom, IGMA Artisan.

1:144" Scale Victorian Cottage. Instructor Nell Corkin, IGMA Fellow.

The Academy was designed to be an open environment where teachers and students interact with each other before, during and after classes. Seasoned miniaturists work alongside novices and are encouraged to work together and share ideas. One student wrote, "Instructors and students left with a sense of having been part of something much more rewarding than the organizers had hoped to achieve."
