Conventions 2019 by Diane Marie Kellogg


Hello! It's that time of year again. The fun of attending a painting convention, there's nothing quite like it. Whether you go to attend the wide variety of classes or take in the exhibitor floor with all the goodies, it's something you don't want to miss. With a wide range of locations, you've got so many choices. Many are themed and the fun to be had is endless. Meet your favorite teachers, the designers you love. Try out that new product, see demos and learn new techniques.

One of my favorite things to do at a all the creatively painted clothing and bags that attendees model as they shop.

I've compiled a list of conventions, conferences, and expos for 2019 for you. I've listed the name, location, website and dates below. I've also included the theme when it was available. If you have any additions to the list, feel free to contact me here.
