Jasmine Becket-Griffith

Updates from Jasmine!



Exciting update this week!

The biggest news is that yes, I'm going to be teaching a painting/art business workshop next November.  I've made my own event page for it here many more details can be found here on the official site, and more details below. November 17-20th, 2016 in Nashville - Myself and a fantastic group of professional artists make up the faculty - It's a four-day workshop and symposium where students will create artwork, attend lectures and get specific advice on building their business. We'll be living, eating and working along side each other for the full four days on an idyllic campus in the hearth of Nashville.
There is a limited number of spots - 45 students in all. It is expected to book up completely.

In other news - my solo show "The Four Seasons" is coming up on Saturday!  The evening of December 12th at Pop Gallery here at Disney Springs (the new name for Downtown Disney) in Florida - details are here.  Details and some sneak peeks are below.  And yes, they will have my new coloring book there too!

In fun news, I'm doing another figurine GIVEAWAY!  This time for a the complete set of all of the "Three Fates" figurines, each autographed personally by me.  The giveaway is through my Patreon here - with a member being randomly chosen at 8pm EST on Wednesday, December 9th.  As long as you are signed up (subscriptions start at literally $1) you will automatically be entered.

And finally just a head's up - several Limited Editions are almost SOLD OUT. "I Vampiri La Sorelle" here , -"Faces of Faery 226" (with the Wolf & Dreamcatcher)here , and "Beauty and the Beast" here are each sold out at Strangeling.com and there is literally one Limited Edition canvas of each left . Last chance to get one at the regular price, after these are gone there will just be the final #25 auction which usually goes for quite a bit more $$$.

I'm teaching at an art/art business workshop next November!  Myself and a fantastic group of professional artists make up the faculty - It's a four-day workshop and symposium where students will create artwork, attend lectures and get specific advice on building their business. We'll be living, eating and working along side each other for the full four days on an idyllic campus in the hearth of Nashville.

So basically I can sit there with you and help you paint, teach ya to paint, you can watch me paint, we will have our meals and all that together, various professional artists will be on hand teaching classes and giving lectures, business stuff, painting stuff, you can bring lists of questions and we'll run through anything you need to know.

There is a limited number of spots 45 students in all. It is expected to book up completely. November 17-20, 2016 In Nashville, TN.

Several wonderful instructors (self included, hehe) will make up the faculty. Stephanie Pui-Mun Law (I love her!), Peter Mohrbacher, Sam Flegal, and more - you can see us all here - Instructors

FAQ is here


Sam Flegal is in charge - if you have specific questions, contact
sam@samflegal.com with any specific questions.

This year attendees will be staying on campus in the dorms at the Scarritt Bennett Center just steps away from our work and lecture area. Students will each have their own rooms and will share a bathroom with one other adjacent room. Meals are also served on site in a giant Hogwarts style hall. Must be seen to be believed.

COST IS $1500
This cost covers all instruction, lectures and demos along with room and board.
We will be providing a work area for all students, but they must bring their own materials and find their own transportation to and from the venue.

NOTE: If you live in the Nashville area or would prefer to stay off-property, you can get the same package (MINUS the dorm room accommodation) for $1200

All students must be at least 18 years or older.

There are 45 tickets available for sale that will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. The signup page is here, definitely sign up sooner rather than later!

Yes - this Saturday night is my Four Seasons show at Pop Gallery!  Located at Disney Springs (the new name for Downtown Disney) here at Disney World in Florida, this is a FREE event, all ages are welcome.  I'll be there from 6-9pm Saturday night in person to debut the paintings, sign autographs, giveaway postcards, chat, take photos, say hi, whatever.  =)

Each of the four paintings for this event will be representative of one of the four seasons. Designed in harmony either as a set of four or hung individually, each will feature a fairy iconic of her season, with various animal friends. Backgrounds are inspired by 19th Century Romantic landscapes. Bright butterflies will tie the four together as well.

Each of the Four Seasons original paintings is a 16"x20" acrylic painting on panel, will come in an ornate frame (the four pieces will be in matching frames), and will be priced at $6400.
