New images from Navajoland were added to the Best of 2015 Gallery.
The May Print of the Month is available. The slight delay is due to our Navajoland Workshop which was scheduled at the beginning of May. You can see it above and order it on the Print of the Month Page.
Navajoland 2016: If you missed this years's Navajoland Workshop join us next year for the 2016 Navajoland Workshop. You can read all the details and register now on the Workshops Page. Natalie and I lived in Canyon de Chinle for 7 years and Navajoland is our second home. Coming to Navajoland with us is much more than just attending a workshop, it is an introduction to Navajo life, art and culture by Natalie and I.
Natalie and I returned from the Navajoland Workshop a couple days ago. This is our last Regular Spring workshop. Our next workshops are Little Known Workshops and are not announced publicly (please see the Workshops page if you are not familiar with these unique events opened only by invitation).
The workshop was fantastic and we say a big 'thank you' to all of you who attended and made it a success. We look forward to seeing you all again soon on another workshop. Now that you have participated in one of our regular workshops you qualify for our Little Known Workshop Series. Just let us know if you want us to include you on our Little Known Workshops email list.
Thank you again for joining us on this adventure. Every workshop is a lot of fun and a lot of learning as we customize the experience for each group according to our teaching goals which are different for each workshop. And each workshop benefits from the Briot Philosophy which by the way is the focus of my next essay.
Don't miss the Artistic Composition Mastery Workshop on DVD announcement above. I will have more information as the release date nears but for now this is exciting in itself. if you want to pre-order it you benefit from the special offer price immediately, no need to wait! If you already have one or several Mastery DVDs you know what to expect. This new one, number 8 in the series, will not disappoint. In fact it is one of my favorites because it focuses on artistic composition which is a subject I love and use in all my work.
Coming Soon: the Alain Briot

This is an event you don't want to pass up with a program that is world class in every respect. Check out all the details now on the Summit Description page. Registration is open but keep in mind that you need to act fast because the event is already half sold out due to the large number of pre-registrations we received from Alumni and previous Summit participants.
