Who is Shortcuts To Perfectly Painted Floors for?
Decorative artists and enthusiasts.You already know a lot about painted finishes. Maybe you’ve been a professional for a number of years, or a faux finish enthusiast who has painted almost every surface of your home. Take the shortcut and skip what you already know and get straight to the meat of painted floors. This class will answer the higher end questions.
Artists who want to offer more than wall finishes. So you already sell glazed and troweled finishes. Your clients want MORE. You want to be able to offer a service that doesn’t compete with wallpaper and isn’t a super-saturated market.
Business owners that want to broaden their client base. You have a good wheelhouse of interior designers that call on your business regularly. Instead of pushing them to sell more, reach out to a broader audience. Go beyond interior designers to home builders, floor refinishers, new home developers and architects.
Busy bees! You are busy with your job, family or other obligations. You’re a busy artist and you’d love to not only learn a new technique. Even though you know adding a new service to your portfolio is the right choice, you just don’t have the time to break away for days at a time to take an out-of-town class.
