SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND MORE

I've been having a great time lately with my school programs. Last week I brought my Fast Draw assembly and workshop to Sherman Elementary School in Olympia, Washington. The week before I was at three schools on the Washington State coast; in Raymond, South Bend and Willapa. If you would like information on my unique school programs, click here.

Just a few weeks ago I conducted my Painting in Paradise Workshop in Rarotonga, in the Cook Islands. In my workshops I demonstrate how to paint realistic tropical flowers in watercolor. The participants raved about Rarotonga all week, stating that their time on the island was one of the highlights of their life. Our next workshop is set for this coming August 8. If you would like to see my flower paintings and learn more about the workshop, here's the web site: http://bronsmith.googlepages.com (To see this web site full screen, copy and paste the URL)

AUTHOR ILLUSTRATOR SCHOOL VISITS

Greetings:

Thanks for stopping by my web site.

Author/illustrator School Assembly news update: I recently returned from two author school assembly and workshop programs in rural Illinois. I visited Nash Middle School in Clifton, and Chebanse Elementary in Chebanse, Illinois. Both towns are about an hour south of Chicago, in corn and soybean country...corn and soy fields as far as the eye can see. I had never spent time in that part of the the country, so it was a special treat for me. Everyone was so kind and hospitable. If you would like to learn more about my school assemblies, author visits, or illlustrator school visits, click on School Programs on the left. Also: www.squidoo.com/school_programs. Or call me at 253-841-7944. I'll be glad to answer your questions.

Over on the cartoon map side, we're just releasing maps of Fernley, Nevada; Ephrata, Pennsylvania, and a cartoon map for USC, Los Angeles, that will appear in their alumni magazine. In the works: Tuskegee, Alabama: Barbados in the Caribbean, and Fullerton, California. We're also looking into doing a series of cartoon maps of all of the major cities in India, beginning with New Delhi. I'll keep you posted on that. To see my cartoon maps, click on Fun Maps on the left.

Would you like to learn to paint in a realistic watercolor technique... in a paradise locale? Then you need to check out my Painting in Paradise Workshop. (To see this image full screen, copy and paste this URL: http://bronsmith.googlepages.com) There's still time to sign up and there are still spaces left. To ramp up the excitement, we're holding the workshop in one of the garden spots of Planet Earth... Rarotonga, one of the most exotic and beautiful of all the South Pacific islands.

If you would like to more closely follow my school, cartoon map, illustration, workshops, and other adventures, you'll find me on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Bron_Smith.

NEW PIZZA MENU

Greetings:

Thanks for stopping by my web site.

So you're a restaurant owner and you need a new menu for the summer tourist crowd. If you want a menu that will make you stand out above the rest of the pizza parlors in town, then check this out. It's the new menu that I illustrated for Coburg Pizza Company in Coburg, Oregon. To see this web site full screen, copy and paste this URL: http://coburgpizza.com.

Or maybe you're looking for a painting workshop to attend, but you want it to be more than just a painting workshop; you want it to be the vacation of a lifetime as well. I've got the perfect workshop for you...it's my Painting in Paradise Rarotonga Workshop. In Rarotonga, a paradise island in the South Pacific Ocean, I will show you how I paint tropical flowers so that they look lifelike and realistic. Some have mistaken my flower paintings for photographs. These pictures are worth a thousand words, because words can't describe what Rarotonga is like...you have to experience it for yourself. So here are the pictures and info for the Painting in Paradise Rarotonga Workshop. To see this web site full screen, copy and paste this URL: http://bronsmith.googlepages.com
