This weekend I coordinated a workshop with Rick Berg our instructor for the Federation of Canadian Artists of Calgary. Rick Is an amazing artist and probably the very best art instructor there is, Hands down!! As coordinator my volunteer job consists of applying for approval after the artist and myself work out his costs, I arrange the room rental and prepare the food and coffee plan. Probably the most difficult thing is keeping track of people who signup for the workshop as there are three ways they can do this, through a fca voucher, paypal or cash/cheque. I like to leave the emailing to Sonja who assists me with fca workshops. I make the purchases of materials we will require and hopefully am able to get sponsorship from gift certificates and or artworks for further FCA opportunities. I prepare all the financial documents always with a break even balance. I enjoy getting to know the artists while arranging for their workshop and love to watch them paint. I hope that artists who attend the workshops have a wonderful experience of social interaction intertwined with the best instruction available.
