Special Summer Event


Surfaces’ Creativity Exchange


June 22nd – June 24th

Join us at Surfaces to learn, share, network, and celebrate with other decorative artists.
We will spend 3-days creating a variety of wall, ceiling, and cabinet samples.

These are examples of the sample range. Finally samples will be available beginning in March.

The HOST/HOSTESS EXCHANGE: Local finishers are invited to host an out-of-town attendee. For each artist you sponsor, you will get $50 off your own registration. Spend time with your Facebook friends or have us help make the connections!
The TEACHING EXCHANGE:  Experienced talented local decorative artists will be teaching full-sized samples of their best-selling finishes.  In exchange, they get a price break on the attending the other classes.
THE RECIPE EXCHANGE:  Do you have a favorite finish to share with other artists?  The finish must be your own creation using Faux Effects products. Send a picture and written directions to by Friday, April 29th.   For your finish you get $75 off your registration. Each afternoon, we will recreate the recipes on quarter sized boards. You will leave with a notebook of new finishes and recipes. A cookie exchange without the calories!
THE SOCIAL EXCHANGE:  We will offer group activities after hours including a tour of Dark Horse Distillery and evening on the Country Club Plaza.  Stay over Saturday and join us for a trip to the Bottoms for junking and lunch alfresco in River Market. When you register, you will receive a menu of activities with costs.
THE MONEY EXCHANGE: Starting at $800 for 3-day classes.  Out of Town attendees can save $100 in the recipe exchange.  Local artists save by hosting a visiting artist.
THE SAMPLE EXCHANGE: I will teach 3 wall and 2 cabinet samples each day.  In addition, a local guest artist will teach 1-2 samples each day.  Your recipe book may include up to 20 new finishes.
SPACE is limited. Registration will open Friday, March 4th.  Samples will begin posting in mid-February. I am currently contacting local finishers interested in teaching or hosting. If you would like to participate, contact me at the above email or by calling Surfaces at 913-888-9996.
