April 2016
Hello everyone, and Happy Spring!!!
We have a few things to discuss...
Roll Call 
We had a lot of requests to simplify the online roll call form. We're updating it and it will be MUCH easier to use! As soon as it's ready, we'll send out an email to let you all know!

We're still working on solutions to the online scheduler; it's much more complex, so it is taking a lot longer!
Please, please, PLEASE make sure that you are using ONLY the approved free class lesson plans! This is SO important! These are the ONLY authorized lesson plans; no deviations, no exceptions! Thank you!

Prior to the acrylic free class, the participants should be purchasing ONE Grumbacher Bristlette filbert #8 brush, and a pack of 9x12 canvas boards. Grumbacher Instructors are to supply each participant with a dollop of each of the 4 student kit colors. (no larger than the size of a quarter!)

Prior to the drawing class, the participants should be purchasing a 2 pack of Koh-I-Noor HB pencils, a 2 pack of Koh-I-Noor 6B pencils, a kneaded eraser, and a Strathmore 400-4 drawing pad.
Supply Order Changes!
There have been changes made to the supply order request process. New limits have been put in place, and it will soon be automated. Here are just a few of the changes...
  • You still need an active, current schedule in our system to request supplies. No exceptions.
  • Requests are limited to 1 request every 14 days.
  • In order to reduce our shipping costs of free supplies, all approved supply orders in California and in all of Canada will now be sent to the instructor's home store. 
  • If you're not scheduling and holding intermediate classes, you will not continue to receive intermediate class supplies.
  • If you request the maximum quantity of all items every two weeks, your order will not be approved unless you have the schedule and roll call to support the necessity of your requests.
  • You will receive confirmation and tracking information for your approved supply orders via email.
If you have any issues with your supply order requests going forward, please reach out directly to your own Grumbacher Education Coordinator here at Chartpak. 
New Lesson Plans!
We have been adding new acrylic lesson plans over the last few weeks, and we will continue to do so over the next few weeks. Go check out what's new!

We also have some instructor shared lesson plans in the queue, so keep an eye out for those as well!
Survey time!
Please help us out by taking this short survey! We're gathering some information that we hope to utilize at a later date; the more responses we get, the better. Thank you in advance for your help!

Until next time,
