Vaillancourt Folk Art Weekend … the Results!

Joan, my mentor painter at Vaillancourt Folk Art, has put the finishing touches on the chalkware Santa that I created at Collector’s Weekend earlier this month.  And, it’s on its way to my door.  I can’t wait to see the finished figure.

I’ll be featuring the Vaillancourt Studio in the Christmas issue.  They are one of the few artisan workshops still making things the “old-fashioned” way in the USA!

  1. Dear Connie, he is so fabulous already I’m sure it will be a wonderful finished piece of art!!!Thank goodness that some things are still being made the old fashioned way in America!!!
    Hope you are doing well.

  2. I still can’t believe that I create this … on my first ever attempt at painting! Think what I might be able to accomplish with some practice and a plan. I had a wonderful mentor. 🙂

  3. I am looking for information on older Vaillancourt Santas. I purchased and older house and the family gave us 21 Santas. Most of them date back to 1985-1991. There are also several larger Santas that I can not find any information on. We would like to sell the items but are not sure the best way to go about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
