Upcoming classes with Jan Schoonover

As any of you that follow my blog know, I just spent a couple weeks with Jan. He's got a few classes coming up and I'd like to plug them here.

In Sheridan and the Rocky Mountain Leather Trade Show, Jan will be teaching a class on carving, embossing and coloring a Boston Bull Terrier on May 18-19, 8am to 5 pm.

On Thursday, May 20th, Jan will be teaching a class on hairing techniques from 8 am to 12 noon. From 1 pm to 5 pm he'll be teaching a class on painting leather with acrylics. In this class Jan wants to teach how to mix different colors using the primary colors and how to blend colors when painting. This sounds like a very interesting class and I wish I was going to be there to take it. For more info on these classes, or to sign up for them go the Leather Crafters and Saddlers Journal website.

Then in June, Jan is planning to head to the Pittsburgh, PA area to teach a class on either a wolf or a bear on the 26th and 27th. Approximate cost for the class is $200. For more info on this class, you can contact Chris Kearns at
