Special Offer: Creative JumpStart 2020 just $45!

I am having a very special sale in response to these unprecedented and difficult times – Creative JumpStart (CJS) 2020 will be just $45 through the end of April. Yes, this is the online workshop CJS that started back in January – the Super Power edition. I know many of you are at home these days and looking for activities, a sense of community, and artistic inspiration. Join us for Creative JumpStart!

Here is the promo video to introduce you to our amazing group of 31 artist teachers. They have each contributed a lesson with the theme Super Power:

These super talented artists are sharing their artistic Super Powers with you through a project or technique lesson. There are 31 teachers and 31 lessons, spanning a wide variety of styles and media. The goal is to JumpStart YOUR Creativity. Learn more HERE.

And check out a peek of some of the artist’s lessons below:

Creative JumpStart is also about Community. The goal is to have a place to get together with other creative and artistic people. In the classroom you can comment on lessons and share your experiences and ask questions. There is a Show & Tell page where you can share your artwork and see what other students are creating. And of course we invite you to interact on social media with hashtags like #cjs20 and #creativejumpstart20.

We are a community of over 1000 people – and now is the perfect time to join in and make some new online friends :)

Already participating in Creative JumpStart 2020? Come back to the classroom and say Hi! Maybe revisit some of the lessons that you loved or techniques you haven’t tried yet. Show & Tell, post on social media, let’s get the conversation going and all enjoy a break from things with some artistic FUN. 

These are unprecedented times of crisis and now more than ever we can see the beneficial powers of artmaking and getting involved with arts communities.

This special sale ends April 30th at 11:59pm EST. Sign up today!

Announcing Creative JumpStart 2020: On sale today!!!

I’m excited today to announce Creative JumpStart (CJS) 2020! What is CJS? It’s a one-of-a-kind online mixed media workshop, now in it’s 9th year, designed to kick your creativity into high gear throughout January 2020. And it goes on sale TODAY!!!

With the Creative JumpStart workshop you will learn techniques, discover new materials, and connect with other artists and crafters. Learn more HERE.

I’m proud to be the founder of Creative JumpStart and one of those artists, called “JumpStarters.” See for yourself what it’s all about:

Creative JumpStart 2020! from Nathalie Kalbach on Vimeo.

How does it work? Throughout January participants get access to 31 downloadable videos from 31 featured artists. With easy-to-digest 10 minute lessons, you get over 5 hours of video content.

And today only, you can get CJS20 for just $40USD. You better hurry though, this Cyber Monday Sale ends tonight, December 2 at 11:59pmEST. Sign up HERE.

The Theme this year is “Super Power”. There is no doubt about it: art can be beautiful, personal, and really fun to make. It can capture a once-in-a-lifetime moment, feeling, or idea. And artists can influence everything from the walls of a home to world events. If you think about it, creativity really is a Super Power! Whether you are creating simply for the joy it brings you or creating to share your ideas with others, that is a pretty awesome pursuit.

So we asked our artists: What is your artistic Super Power? Is it a tool or technique that helps you achieve your unique style? Is it a way of thinking, organizing, or planning that leads up to a finished piece? Is it something else entirely? What Super Power do you use to create?

They have created video lessons that explain and show their artistic Super Power in action. They take us step-by-step through their creative process and signature art making style. Creative JumpStart 2020 is this collection of mixed media lessons to help us learn about different artistic Super Powers and how to use them in our own artmaking.

Find out all the details and sign up TODAY:
