"Atlanta Plaster Boot Camp"

You will do 100 sq. ft. of each: Marmorino, Calcenova, Metallo and Veneziano. After you sign up for "boot camp", but before class begins, you will pick your own colors.

This class is designed for 9 to 5 but could run over. You will leave with the confidence to do almost any plaster finish. We will have staging furniture for you to take pictures of your rooms for your portfolio. Linda and I both will run this class and help each of you to complete 4 works of art. This will only be held at our Atlanta location. The cost of the class will be $2,000.00 Part of the cost will go to re-sheetrock the walls and buy new crown and base. Class size is limited to 8.

If this was a paying job you would make about 5 grand in one week. So if you are a decorative artist already, you will learn how to work more effectively in order to achieve these kind of goals. If you are new to applying Decorative Plasters you will have a jump start on how to work efficiently.

We share with you what has worked for us, including actual pricing for all of the plasters and a business plan to help you market yourself. This is a proven plan that we successfully have used ourselves for years. You will be able to practice along with the DVD to perfect your technique

This is also a certification class and we will include you on our website. You will also be included in our national marketing of Applicators. You will receive our 14 DVD set, 2 fan decks and have access to the estimator. Not to mention access to our Certified Applicator Forums.

The dates are as follows:

October 15th thru the 20th

November 5th thru the 10th.
