Have You Seen Our New Website???

Wowza!  I don't know if you've checked out our website lately, but we've made some great improvements to it and it's got some amazing new features!  We thought we'd take a moment to introduce you to a few of the new features.

When it first comes up you'll see this:

There is a standard navigation bar on the top left side of the page which allows you to move between different features on the site, like the calendar and the blog.  There's also a running photo carousel at the top of the page which includes some of our more important upcoming events, and as you continue to scroll down you will see some of our recent blog posts.  Then you will find a really convenient new feature on the right - our current calendar of events.  As you notice in the screen shot below, when you scroll over an upcoming event a little box will pop up that gives you more details:

If you click on the event you will be navigated to the detailed class description page.  

For now, though, let's take a look at the how the first page of the Calendar section will appear if you click on the "Calendar" link in the navigation bar at the top of the page:

Awesome, right?  You can see the name of the class, any sample photos, the date, time and the cost... all the pertinent details are right there for your perusal.  Now here's another feature - if you look carefully at the photo below, you'll see that there is a blue box highlighted in the bottom of the Copic 101 class:

If you click on that little mixed media box, the displayed classes will change so that only classes about mixed media will appear:

That's pretty exciting, right????  

Now, from the main calendar pages you can click on the individual classes and be taken to a page with more detailed class information.  Here's where you will find details on what to bring to class or any other special information specific to that class.  For even more convenience, if you're a techno junkie, there's a link in the center of the page that allows you to add the class information to the electronic calendar of your choice:

As you continue to scroll down the class description page, there's a section for you to make comments and ask questions.  Who knew? 

Pretty amazing, right?  Michelle and her husband Lee have been working overtime to bring us these great new convenience features and they're STILL working on even more exciting changes (I know what they are, but I'm not telling yet.... bwah ha ha ha ha....)... just keep your eyes peeled!!!
