Busy, busy happenings at Oasis Studios & Gallery! Â My dad and I got the central heat working so it won’t be so bone cold. Â That means that we can have the Midnight at Oasis parties! Â Now I need to line up some guests. Â :)
SEVERAL of you have already signed up for membership at artisticbiker.com! I truly, TRULY appreciate each and every one of you. Â Please take the time to poke around and try to break the site. Â I’m writing a full guide to go out with the welcome e-mails in the future and I want to be able to address as many confusing issues as I can. Â MOST of what is available to you as a premium member will be found under The Classroom link on the upper left column. Â There are plenty other things to come, but I am trying to make sure everything is quality as I go. Â One thing I definitely need to know about is if you are a premium member and you see a paypal button anywhere, please tell me. Â Once you subscribe, all further content is free to you.
We didn’t have a show this week so I wasn’t able to get next week’s password out. Â A quick note about the passwords, if you try to access the site on Monday and the password doesn’t work? Â It’s because I haven’t gotten around to changing it yet. Â That means the previous password is still active and you can look at the last newsletter to find that. Â I shall endeavor to be more diligent in the changing of the passwords. Â I just don’t want them changed before the newsletter goes out, and I’m usually on my way to work when that happens.
I didn’t have any announcements to make this week, but if you have one, you can always email or dm me with a link to the info and I will add it to this newsletter. Â It’s my way of giving back to those who have given me so much.
The Classroom site isÂ http://www.ustream.tv/channel/oasisgalleryok
The password for this week is: shading
Drawing Class: Â The Shadow! Tuesday night 6pm central. Â This week I will demonstrate how the combined shapes and textures for shading on an object. Â We’ll look at something shiny, something rough, and something furry. Â Something OTHER than me.
Painting Class: Wednesday night 6pm centralPopcorn Finale! Whether this thing is done or not, this is the finale. Â I’ll finish the shading and highlights and demonstrate finishing techniques.
The past classes are moving into the Pay-per-view side of ustream and on artisticbiker.com as well. $2 lets you view them online at Ustream, $5 lets you download them at artisticbiker.com, and a $10/month membership gets you unlimited downloads from the site.
