FIRST TIME ATTENDING?

Here's Some Helpful Information!

The CREATIVE PAINTING Convention started in 1992,
and is held in late February each year in Las Vegas.
We offer over 100 classes for all skill levels.
Just select the classes you want and CALL to register.
We accept Mastercard, Visa, or Discover.
We offer shopping with booths selling paints, brushes,
pattern packets, videos, and so much more!

Class Skill Levels:

THERE ARE MANY PAGES ON THIS WEBSITE TO SHOW CLASSES!
(Just scroll down and use the navigation box below to tour each page.)

BEGINNER: You have little or no painting experience,
or you are trying a medium which is new to you.
Don't be shy - You'll be with others who are all there to learn.

INTERMEDIATE: You have the basic skills, brush control, and a good
understanding of fundamentals for the medium being used.

ADVANCED: You have extensive experience and skills
for a class taught at a brisk pace.

Class Sizes:

REGULAR CLASSES: Our classes are usually limited to 27 or 36 students,
arranged in either 3 rows of up to 12, or 4 rows of up to 9 per row...
You'll never be further away than the 3rd or 4th row,
so it should be easy to see what the instructor is presenting.

EVENTS: These sessions are often expanded for
48 to 96 students, seating arranged in rows of 12 ...
A projector and large screen are often used,
making it easier to see what the instructor is presenting.
Presented and sponsored by exhibiting vendors,
these events tend to sell out quickly. Our "Events" are a
wonderful and fun experience, and allow you to see the newest
products, trends, and designs, at a very reasonable cost.

POST-CONVENTION SEMINARS: These are sessions presented by
selected teachers. Seating is limited to 27, usually 3 rows of 9.
These are more detailed and intricate projects, and therefore
take 2 full days to accomplish. Some have a Friday evening
opening session (6 - 9 pm), and then go all day Saturday & Sunday.
Prices are somewhat higher, so only a $100 deposit is charged
at the time of registration, with the balance due at the start of class.

Lodging:

We highly recommend that you stay with us at the Tropicana Hotel.
Their remodeling is complete, and the facility is 1st class.
We have special group rates in effect for the convention.
All your classes and the exhibits are under one roof!
You'll find it VERY convenient to just use an elevator to get from
your room to the classes, with no need to go outdoors with wet paintings!

Travel:

BY AIR: Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport is just minutes
from the Las Vegas "strip". Taxis are convenient; It's a short ride.

BY CAR: The Tropicana is at the Southern end of the Las Vegas Strip. There's
plenty of FREE parking available at the hotel, either self-park or valet.
