I am excited!! About what you might ask. For years I’ve promoted Jerry’s Artarama for their wide variety of high quality art supplies. I buy most of my paint, brushes, journals, gesso, canvases and many other supplies to create contemporary mixed media collages and art journal pages from Jerrys. They are a real art store with workers who are artists and knowledgeable about the supplies. One of my favorite things about Jerrys is once a year they sponsor Art of the Carolinas in Raleigh NC which is the largest art trade show in the country. You are able to learn about new products directly from the companies at greatly reduced prices. There is also classes during the show by successful professional artists.
I would think about forming some type of profitable partnership with Jerry’s and this idea became one of those “someday I should.” At the beginning of 2020 I began setting goals on possible strategic partnerships. Brain storming with a blank piece of paper and a pen brought nothing the page remained blank. While on a call with some fellow artists it was time to fill up this blank page with something . Once again Jerrys came to mind but this was the first time I actually wrote down the goal of partnering with Jerrys.
About a week later, I happened to be in the store and it was time to be bold. I asked if there was any type of program for partnering with Artists, the clerk was unaware of any but gave me the name and contact info of the manager. I would like to say action was taken immediately but that did not happen, the managers card was placed on my desk where it sat for several weeks. Instead of making a simple call the “someday attitude returned.” Have you ever done that?
Part of making goals for 2020 was action steps needed, I wrote down that Jerrys would be contacted because it seemed like an easy goal. Guess what? It was a simple email to the manager who promptly responded that my request would be forwarded to corporate. About a week later I received an email from corporate stating they would like for me to become an Ambassador for them!
Once a month I will receive a box of free art supplies from brands like Lukas and Soho. The first box was just requested was able to pick 12 tubes of Lukas paint! How do you like Lukas brand? What is your favorite color? Once the paint arrives we will share and test them by painting some contemporary mixed media collages on our Thursday 7 pm EDT FB live we do from Angela Bruch Art FB page.
My finished mixed media collages or art journal pages will be posted on their website with my social media contact info. So it will be a great way to get free art supplies, have fun and get creative while the same time promoting my work. Most exciting my very first goal for 2020 has been reached ! Have you reached any of your goals? If so which ones, would love to hear about it.
I’ve attached a mixed media collage painting from using all Jerry’s supplies you can also check out my artwork and art journals that have been painted with Jerrys supplies on our website www.angelabruchart.com or our FB business page https;//angelabruchart.com
