Our 2015 trip to Italy was amazing and inspires me yet.
Our Classes were really fun, and the newly trained Faux Artists are dynamic. It somehow seems that each class is better than the last.
Look out for those enthusiasts who no doubt
will create some beautiful Faux before long in Austin, San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and Shreveport.
It has been an absolutely beautiful and long Spring here in Austin, and the Summer promises warmth and sun as always. All classes are scheduled for 5 days and include only
two students. Please look at the Classes page for more

Thank you for your trust and support during our many
years of successful instruction with such excellent products and the many
beautiful interior productions we've created. I have always truly enjoyed each of you
and your energy to be artistic and make our world more exquisite.
I continue on a jouney that dictates "we are each the ones we've been
waiting for". So "go ahead" and create the good you have "imagined". I am.
Sincerely, Lu Goodwin Mark
Now more than ever Decorative Artists who hope to increase their client base, must respect their client's limits. More
importantly, they need a clear understanding of costs, a process
flexible enough to adjust as the project evolves, and the creative
know-how to do more with less. The question to be asking your client
is, "How do we best spend the money you’ve budgeted?"
being said, we all noticed our lovely city and surrounding areas began
to prosper. So please brag about your adventurous
creations that peak the imagination of Austin's Faux Artists and
designer expectations alike. Fun times come upon us
again. Consequently, I'm teaching Metallics and Glazes with
some cutting edge surprises. Come have a look.
Our classes do run full with small classes of no more than two
students at a time. Choose a week
