Talk Story | Special Events

Deep down inside of you is a fabulousness just waiting to be found and at Talk Story we deliver opportunities for you to truly shine:

  • ArtBar with Kim Geiser: Most nights Kim will be at the bar hosting a low key relaxing end to your creative day. Simple downtime hanging out with fellow artists and teachers. Kim will share some simple slowdown techniques to help you wind down and relax before going to bed. There will be a small materials fee for those participating.
  • More than Just a Coloring Contest: Remember good old fashioned coloring contests? Well here’s your chance to relive the good old days with fun healthy competition. Create a project of your choosing using the image provided. You can stitch it, paint it, draw it, whatever you want as long as the image is the main design element! The final projects will be put on display in the hotel and people can vote for their favorite project with a dollar. The artist with the most money at noon on Sunday will win a fun prize and the dollars collected will be donated to a local charity.
  • Once Upon a Time Gala Dinner: Jane Eyre, Frankenstein, Harry Potter and Green Eggs and Ham all had something in common – fabulous and memorable characters.  You are invited to dress as your favorite story book character, author or poet and enjoy a festive night of creative eating and storytelling.
  • Sunday Art Trunk: A boutique Art Trunk with 10 exclusive spots available for creatives to sell their art, wares and supplies.
  • Apron Project Showcase: Strength is her Super Power! Back for its fourth year and this time, if you make two – one will go to Australia to be presented in a National roadshow and auctioned off for Sallianne’s Women’s Shelter, the other will be showcased at Talk Story and auctioned off with money going to YOUR chosen charity.
  • Join us in 2019: Artists registered for 3 or more days will have their names placed in a draw to win a 3 day registration to Tinker Tailor Artist Maker in California.  Prize is not transferrable and can not be exchanged for cash.  Prize does not include airfare or accommodation.
