About Art Opera, Pricing, Creation, Event Coordination!

Hi All,
As you are now aware Art Opera Registration is now open! Now I wanted to take the time to explain to you about the event, some details, pricing, layaway, a la cart and how events work!
Everything about this event was created based on the desire and passion of having an event which has diversity, recognition, inspiration, fantasy, and artful magic, all under one roof in an area I believe was longing for it. Putting something like this together is not easy and isn't something you put together on a whim, just ask any event coordinator. These events take alot of research and careful planning, precision, organization and attention to detail are key to run/host an event like this.

You also must be considerate to your fellow artists and community and try not to run an event the same time as another, that hurts both sides of the parties, embracing one another is more rewarding. As far as payment is concerned these events are always going to be more costly then a normal workshop at an arts center, fair, store or small venue and not always will the classes be taught all day, especially when you are given the chance to learn from 4 to 5 teachers over 2 days, cutting down the time doesn't mean you are cutting down on learning or technique, but instead allowing for you to learn from more then 2 teachers.

The pricing is based on the hotel/event location, seat/place rental, teacher fees, food, supplies, electrical and other fees. These should all be considered when you are searching to host, teach or learn at an event.

The ambiance, your peers, guest speakers, food, treats and surprises are priceless, no money can mark them, these are your memories, your adventures waiting to happen, to become magic. An event is what you make of it, you could be in a room filled w/treasures or a room w/o treasures, its the company you take, good company that can make your situation shine bright
Events are investments of your time and money, but also they are good investments, a one of a kind forum with like minded people, a great source of networking, you can't beat that kind of networking and marketing. They unite us all together, a sister or brother hood of friendship and fun.

With Art Opera I wanted to do something for the tri-state to bring that artful magic to fellow neighbors and invite our out of state friends over for some fun and artful magic. With the economy up and down, I wanted to be able to offer this event as: a la cart, and w/layaway, w/multiple hotel/motel locations and near transportation routes so that everyone can have a chance to come and enjoy.

A la cart pricing is based on hotel rental, food, teacher and seat rental that is how pricing was configured for the a la cart class fees. Full registration is based on other fees.
I wanted to give you all an insight on how these things work, so that you better understand the process, and can feel more connected to it.

One more thing about Art Opera, this event will be the first to give recognition to people in our field, a thank you to the industry professionals, new comers and fans, I call this the AOA: Art Opera Awards. Ballots for voting will be posted on or before Oct.1 running through March 1....Once voting closes, the ballots will be counted and the awards given out on April 7 at orientation. If you want to recommend a person to me for AOA, email me their names.
I hope you have gained an insight and understanding of art opera and events in general, remember I am always here to answer questions!
Magic and Joy!
Lisa! to register
