Limited Time Five Dollar Classes, WOOO HOOO!!!

You aren't going to believe how many classes are available for $5.00 each for 1 month of access!  Check it out! 

Take a Class at The Art Studio for $5

For one week only, you’ll get the deal of a lifetime. You can take as many classes at The Art Studio @ SNR as you like for only $5 each.  It’s our way of thanking you for being a part of our awesome community and a great opportunity for us to show you how incredibly talented our instructors are.

Class content may include PDFs, videos, slides, templates, sketches and/or cutting files, depending on how the instructor has set up their classroom. You’ll also have full access to the instructor, either via a private group or e-mail. This also depends on how the instructor has set up their classroom. Full details are listed in each class description, so you’ll know what you can expect when taking the class. 
You can purchase each class at the $5 price between November 17, 2012 and November 23, 2012. Please note that you’ll only have access to class content for one month rather than lifetime access as you would with the regular class fee. At the end of the month, if you want to, you can renew the class at a deeply discounted price. If you purchase the renewal, your access to class content and materials will never expire.
There are no promo codes to enter. Please note that there are a few classes that aren’t eligible for the $5 price and they will be clearly marked. 
So make it an awesome week and come play with us at The Art Studio @ SNR!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
