The first year of the Good Sam Academy was a very special and successful event. A really good time was had by all! This year, we are offering the Second Annual Academy immediately following the show. The intent of the Academy is to give students an opportunity to learn how to make high quality miniatures from some of the leading miniaturists in their fields.
|"The 2013 Academy was a resounding success," says Connie Sauve, GSAM Director. "We had incredible teachers, great classes to choose from, and wonderful catered food. A week of fun, miniatures and friends! What else could a miniaturist ask for?"|
|"The bright and well lighted classroom facility for the "Le Bon Marché" 2013 workshop was fabulous," says Bluette Meloney. She taught students faux finishes and trompe l'oeil painting techniques.|
|"If you are not having fun you shouldn't be in this class," Rik Pierce tells participants in his "Medieval Hunting Folly" workshop. Students learned how to use Creative Paperclay to make stone, bricks, etc., and lots more.|
|Student Carolynn Walden is having fun and working hard in Rik Pierce's workshop.|
|"Hot pizza straight from the wood burning oven. Wow! What a treat. Everyone felt this was one of the hallmark moments of our experience," exclaimed a workshop participant.|
