Seminars

We have relocated our corporate headquarters and our residence to Riverton, Utah.  Check our schedule of seminars for one that fits your schedule. We have semi retired in our home in Utah. Being semi-retired means I only have to work half a day, and I get to choose the half I like, the first 12 hours or the second 12 hours. I will spend most of my time teaching, sculpting and managing our artdolls business. I will travel from time to time, but not nearly as much as I have for the past twenty three years. It is time to slow down and enjoy my sculpting and teaching at home. I can teach for much less money at home, so I will pass those savings on to the you. For now, I have reduced the cost of the seminars from $495 to $395. The three day seminar will include learning how to sculpt a one-of-a-kind doll and the supplies for the workshop. We also have a costume maker to assist us in completing the costumes during the class.  

We are so close to all of the hotels that I can provide transportation from your lodging to my studio each morning and at the end of the class each evening. The classes last eight hours each day,so at the end of the day I will drive you back to your hotel.  By the way, we are limiting the classes to four students.

Participation in the Professional Class is by invitation only. Each year the top artists from Jack's seminars are chosen to join this professional workshop. This intense, week-long class prepares the artists to show their dolls at major doll shows in the USA, and Europe. The purpose of this class is to introduce the serious artist to the world of professional doll making through magazines, shows, Internet and networking with other professionals. This premier class is held only once a year. Please call toll free 800-290-9998 and speak directly with Jack about this class.

Private Seminar

If you wish to speed along your progress toward becoming a professional doll maker you may wish to take a private class. The three day private courses are held upon request and time availability throughout the year. During the private class you will learn how to make the head, hands, shoes, body, hair, makeup/paint, professional stand and photography. You will leave the class with a finished doll including the hidden stand and a photo of your accomplisment in the class.

The private classes are not for everyone, they are only for those who are serious about becoming a professional doll maker. The curriculum for the private course is the same as the courses given to the Masters and Professional students, only it is one-on-one.

The course includes airfare to Salt lake City, Utah from any location in the USA, lodging and meals. Mr. Johnston will meet you at the airport and see that you are well cared for during your stay.
