Mary Beth and Rae!

Join Mary Beth Shaw and Rae Missigman in October as they teach the same 3-day Workshop TWICE — They will be teaching separately and tag-teaming, riffing off of each other — in this extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime Mixed Media Watercolor offering at Ephemera Paducah.

Rae and Mary Beth have been business friends for years as Rae designs some of the most sought-after stencils StencilGirl® Products produces. Both are iconic Mixed Media artists and instructors. But it wasn’t until Mary Beth was taking Rae’s workshop at the Ephemera Paducah Studio last year that they actually met in person and hung out. Talk about clicking! That’s when Mary Beth’s “Aha Moment!” hit that these crazy kids should teach together in 2022!

Think about it….

  • They both adore Mixed Media.
  • They both have been accomplished artists for decades.
  • They both incorporate Watercolor in their art practices.
  • Each has a unique style and way of working in this medium.
  • Imagine the outcome of what you know and do + Rae’s input + Mary Beth’s input? Mind blown.

They will be teaching the same workshop TWICE — two (2) workshops back-to-back — focused on using watercolor in your Mixed Media practice. Register for the option that works best for you. Please DO NOT sign up for both workshop options.

We have some other surprises up our sleeves that YOU. WILL. LOVE.
