In case you haven't heard about the first ever polymer clay and mixed media adventure called polymer Clay Adventure I want to share a little about how it has come together. Over a year ago Kira my business partner and I decided we wanted to host a retreat that anyone, anywhere in the entire world with access to a computer could attend. Let's face it retreats can be expensive, with travel, the cost of the retreat, babysitters, time off from work and the family etc. can really set you back a pretty penny. We wanted everyone to be able to enjoy the community aspect where everyone gets to know each other and to be able to learn from their favorite artists without breaking the bank.
After a ton of planning which is still going on we were able to pull it off.we gathered 22 super talented artists together from all over the world and will be introducing the first year long retreat which you can attend from the comfort of your home. There will be 2 new classes every month, there will be interviews and pajama parties and live chats and demos and so much more! This is going to be some serious fun! You will get all 24 classes and all of the events for only $99. I know that sounds impossible but it's true, we have far exceeded our expectations and as of this writing we have almost 500 people from all around the world attending. The event doesn't kick off until January 1,2015 so we expect there will be many more people joining us.
So how do we think we can pull it off? Kira and I met online 8 years ago and we have never lived closer than 350 miles form each other almost everything we have done we have done virtually. We have learned the ins and outs of producing online video, communicating online, chatting and recording video online and so on. We have learned what works and what doesn't, we have learned how to make things user friendly and easily accessible, we have learned the best way to communicate and share online and now we are sharing it with the world. Don't get me wrong it's a huge undertaking but we have no doubts we can do it and do it great! Heck I think the hardest thing so far was convincing the teachers that we could pull it off. We are so happy many of them could see our vision and decided to join us. We know it will be an amazing adventure.
