A word about classes — Dina Wakley, Kendra Krebs, Marianne Walker and more!

Edgar Allan Crow and the Runaway gang wanted to make sure you had some info about our upcoming classes.

First, we still have room in Dina Wakley’s first class when she comes June 8 & 9 — and the waiting lists for the other two aren’t all that long (and we’re looking at ways to expand the classroom’s capacity just a touch), so you may still be able to get into those as well. There is more detail on her classes if you click the “Classes” tab.

Second, we want to remind you that Kendra Krebs comes to Runaway pretty regularly — and she is offering her wonderful classes about watercoloring the Art Impressions way in both April and May. You can see find that information on the “Classes” tab as well.

Finally, Copic® artist and author Marianne Walker visited Runaway during our Copic® Color Celebration. And we jumped at the opportunity to have her come back and teach some techniques from her “Copic® Coloring Foundation” books. And you know where you can find that info? On the “Classes” tab, of course!

Remember to sign up for these — and any of our other classes — by contacting Runaway by e-mail at or by telephone at (503)881-6270. Of course, we’re always happy to see your smiling face in the store — and we’d be happy to sign you up then!
