While you are on the PPANE site remember to book for the PPANE Conference Sept 12-14 to be held in Nashua, NH. Michael and Tina Timmons will share how they developed a profitable business specializing in Art Decor and show how they enhance images to win Awards. The Timmons presented an evening session in CT in May but this is a full day program expanding their material and giving insights into what Judges look for.
Randy Kerr will speak on Saturday night and Sunday morning, sharing his positive approach to Lighting. He’s a wonderful instructor: just ask Rene Genest, Catherine Maynard or myself because we were all fortunate to take a week long class with Randy and Doug Box at N.E.I.P.P. 2 years ago.
Canon Explorer of Light Ken Sklute will be presenting his approach to creativity on Sunday afternoon. He will share tools and techniques to go beyond simply capturing the scene in front of you. Instead of seeing him speak in a vast hall to thousands of people at ImagingUSA, you get a more intimate presentation at PPANE. Come and be inspired by his dramatic imagery.
Woody Walters will be revealing his secrets to Illustrative Portraits during a full day on Monday. Over the years I’ve had instructors rave about his brushes and techniques but never heard him speak in person so this is the perfect chance to learn how he incorporates smoke and lightening into his art.
As if these inspiring sessions aren’t already enough value for your membership, there are Scholarship Drawings of $250 up to $400, a Trade Show, Cocktails and an Awards Party to kick up your heels. Watch the Challenge Print Competition on Saturday, take a close look at the North East District Print Display on Saturday or book a 15 minute 1:1 Mentoring session with an IPC Judge on Sunday morning.
As always, book at PPANE.com. See you there.
