WELCOME

to the Beyond the Clay Community info page. I’d first like to thank all of you who make the decision to join me on this journey; to support my arts accessibility work; and to sponsor art class scholarships. When you make the decision to join this community, you become part of a family; a place where you are MORE than just a “subscriber to another membership group”.  

     To me, all my members are like extended family.  Y’all have subscribed and invested in me and my success as an artist. Most of my subscribers may not be able to afford a commission or a piece of my original art but still want to support me and my art.  This has given them that option. Below you will find a breakdown of all the different levels you can subscribe at and what you get in return. If you have any questions – please ask!    

     Once your subscription is confirmed, you will receive an email with the password to access exclusive content. Make sure that you enter your PREFERRED email address when you subscribe (it can be different than your PayPal email) and add info@shawnabarnes.com to your address book. We don’t want all that important info going to your spam folder!

 

     Do you want to support my art business but don’t want to commit to a monthly subscription or invest in any original art? That’s AWESOME too! I’ve created a “tip jar” option for one time payments. YOU decide how much you want to contribute simply by sending money using my PayPal . Me link.

     You can also shop from my “Studio Supply Wish List” on Amazon or on Blick Art Supplies if you’d rather. Thank you for your support!

Within the members only area, you get access to behind the scenes videos about my studio practice, in depth tutorials that elaborate on the free mini tutorials available across my social media pages, exclusive products and content not available to anyone else, first dibs/early access to any sculptures, a discount on commissions..and so much more!  

     In the $5/mo tier, you will be welcomed with open arms into a private group on Facebook. Here, I post polls and engage with my members so that YOU become an integral part of my studio practice.  I share the ups and downs of being an artist and give you a raw glimpse into the true struggles behind the scenes. 

Summary of Perks:

 In the $10/mo tier, you will start getting happy mail in the form of postcards that feature my own original artwork. This one grants you access to the fun picture digital downloads for PERSONAL use OR in depth tutorials. If you consider yourself an ‘aspiring art collector” – select the downloads.  If you are an educator or fellow artist, select the tutorial option. Every once in a while I’ll provide access to both for this subscription level. Downloads will be sent via an email newsletter. Tutorials will be posted to my blog as password protected. When new tutorials are released, you will receive the alert and a copy of the text via email newsletter.

Summary of Perks:

  • Monthly members-only postcard featuring a picture of my work

The $15/mo tier is geared for those who support the idea of healing through creating!! I am using John Morris’ work to help redefine how creativity is defined and perceived. By using this work and incorporating it into my studio practice, I look forward to promoting the notion that it is the process of creation that can hold the key to unlocking immense physiological healing potential in addition to the recognized emotional/psychological benefits. 

You can see an example of what this level helps support by going to my resource center > arts accessibility.

Summary of Perks:

  • Early access/preview to articles, tutorials, teachables/printables I create, and resources for creative arts and how they help a body heal
  • Access to members exclusive products
  • Digital coloring page you can print out (personal use only)
  • Plus all previous rewards under the $10 TUTORIALS level

In the $20/mo tier, you will not only be getting postcards that feature my own original artwork every month, but you also get a choice of 3 different options : a new art miniature every OTHER month, in depth tutorials as they are created, or a set of polymer clay charms (that include 1 that passes quality control standards and assorted “seconds”, experiments, or woops’) sent out monthly! The art miniatures are small resin casts created from original sculptures that I created and then made a silicone mold of. Each mini will either be a members only exclusive color OR an early release color.

Summary of Perks:

  • One of these three options:
    • mini sculpture castings (bi-monthly)
    • access to exclusive in depth tutorials
    • set of polymer clay charms (monthly)
  • Plus all previous rewards (based on selection of “art downloads” or “tutorials”)
