Thread: Painting/Modeling workshops in the U.S.?

    Default Painting/Modeling workshops in the U.S.?

    Hi there,

    I tried a quick search of the forums and google but couldn't come up with anything so I thought I'd inquire here...

    Does anyone know of any multi-day workshops/retreats in the United States which focus on miniature painting and/or modeling? I know that there are usually individual classes at the big conventions and such but I was looking for something more like this (without having to travel to Europe and learn a new language ): http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/20...uncements.html

    Basically a weekend style workshop in a small group setting where everyone can learn and practice their skills without the rest of a full gaming convention experience.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Where do you live and how far are you willing to travel? In 2 weeks reaper con is going on down in Texas the offer painting classes all weekend not sure if any seats are left. http://www.reapermini.com/reapercon

    Mathieu Fontaine from canada host classes in Canada and did do some classes in the U.S. too but last I heard he had some visa issues over his teaching classes and wasn't sure if he would be doing it anymore. He can check his status on his blog. http://www.akaranseth.com/blog

    You might find a club near you that also does a show. Long island miniature society, meets once a month and has a decent show in November. Most stuff at the show is 54 mm and above but last year they added a 32 mm class. http://www.longislandmodelsoldiers.com/

    Just outside Philadelphia in a couple of weeks is the Miniature figure collectors of America show. They also have a club that meets once a month. It's worth checking out the show, great stuff there last year. Couple of other links on there site may help find other groups.

    I know there are groups in D.C. Area, Atlanta, and oaklahoma, Texas and Boston. You could try http://www.planetfigure.com/ for more info there.

    If your just trying to paint a better gaming figure most local hobby stores should have some people that could be of basic help that you can supplement with some videos. But I agree it's always nice to get some pointers of how to progress directly.

    Last thought you could try http://www.ipmsusa.org/ you may find a local branch near you. they mostly build historical planes and tanks but they may be some help too.

    Let us know where you are located. There may be a member in this forum close by that could help.
