[general] John Porcellino Workshop in March 5-9, 2012

Posted 19 Dec, 2011

An announcement from SAW, the Sequential Artists Workshop:

John Porcellino's Workshop is up and running and we're already making arrangements for our attendees. The early-bird price of $250 will go up at the end of the year, so get in now. See more info on the SAW website, here, or just sign up, here

For attendees, we have a separate message:

Hi attendees of the John Porcellino Workshop,

Thanks for signing up, and we want to communicate with you some specifics regarding what you may need or want for the week.

  • Lodging: many of you have located some, or live in the area. Those of you who haven't, please let us know if you would like us to help you find something, however formal or informal. Just email Tom directly at or else
  • Materials: As of this date, John hasn't finalized a materials list. Since there are still 2+ months, there is plenty of time. We'll let you know when we have more info here.
  • Art store: There is a good art store nearby, Central Florida Office Plus (or CFOP), and they will have everything John tells us to order in advance. They are a 15 minute walk from SAW.
  • Itinerary: I believe the plan is to work from roughly 9-5 each day with a lunch break in between. I suspect John may take you on at least one nature walk, in which case, be sure to wear something other than stilletos or flip-flops.
  • Out and about: SAW is right behind a food co-op, and within a 5-minute walk to the Sun Center, where there is a good diner and a Mexican place, Boca Fiesta, plus Maudes cafe, a local favorite. At least two other cafes are nearby and a 5 minute walk: Volta and The Bull. The Bull serves food. There is also a Starbucks nearby, and The Lunchbox, a great little outdoor lunch place. Within a 5-minute bike ride or a 15-minute walk, you have all the amenities of a small college town. Lots of options.
  • Class size, refunds and cancellations: John and I will work to create an exact policy, but certainly that will include refunds if there is an emergency and you need to cancel. Please give us as much lead time as possible as we want to make sure to get people to take your slot if the workshop fills. The class size limit to be about 10 and at the current rate, we expect to fill, so do please keep us informed if you need to cancel. No refunds can be given after the start date.
  • Tattoos: If you want to get a John P tattoo, there are lots of places in town.

If you haven't signed up yet, the price will go up on Jan 1, 2012. We have only a handful of slots left.
Thanks! TH@SAW
