We are celebrating 5 years of 4Experts at Big Picture Classes! We are thrilled to announce Becky Higgins, Heidi Swapp, Nic Howard and Stacy Julian as our expert line-up in 2012. We join you in anticipation of these four 12-week workshops, hosted in unique and custom classrooms, designed to provide the very best that BPC has to offer. When you take a 4Experts class you not only get top-notch education, you become part of an active and exciting community of friends from across the county and the globe. Watch the videos below and make plans to spend quality time with Becky, Heidi, Nic and Stacy in 2012.

Note: Registration for each 4Expert workshop begins approximately eight weeks before the first day of class. If you're not yet a BPC member, click here to register so you can receive email notification when registration opens.

January to March 2012
Stacy Julian | author and blogger

There are twelve inches in a foot, twelve people on a jury and twelve colors on the color wheel. Twelve is the symbol of cosmic order and the number of space and time. Twelve is also a brand new 12-week 4Expert experience with me! In essence, twelve is my personal scrapbooking pledge for 2012 and I want to share it with you. Join me January through March for an exercise in authentic storytelling, inspired scrapbooking and creative flow. Together we'll make preparations for twelve pages a month and compile a Photos I Love commemorative project. Register for Twelve and look forward to twelve weeks of instruction, twelve months of personal and artistic expression and dare I say, dozens and dozens of delightful ideas.

The Art of Observation
April to June 2012
Heidi Swapp | author, product designer and blogger

How do you describe your NOW? Where do you see beauty? List 10 things that make you smile! How do you show love? What amazes you? What do you look forward to? What is the favorite part of your day?

For hundreds of years, artisans, poets, playwrights and musicians have translated their most personal observations into the main subjects of their art. How are your 'observation' skills? During our 12 weeks together, I'll lead you in making more careful observations about life and using those fresh observations as a springboard for fabulous scrapbook pages …while learning some fun new techniques and cool artistic ways to pretty much thrill you while you create! After 12 weeks and 12 scrapbook pages, you will go forward with a whole new outlook on capturing what you want to remember.

Dimensional Details - The Expanded Version
July to September 2012
Nic Howard | author and blogger

How would you like to spend some time with me in 2012, learning all of my favorite techniques to create beautifully detailed layouts? I am back with Dimensional Details - The Expanded Version.

This workshop was a huge hit in 2010, and the basis is the same but I've added new and updated content! I'll teach my own spin on techniques such as building backgrounds, creating embellishments, and working with photos, titles, frames, and borders. Week after week you'll get step-by-step instructions, plenty of examples, tips and techniques. From the layout base to the smallest embellishment, if you love the detailed look of layered pages, you won't want to miss this class!

Project Real Life
October to December 2012
Becky Higgins | author, product designer and blogger

My motto—Cultivate a good life and record it—is at the heart of everything I do with my blog, my products and certainly in my real life. I invite you to come along and spend some time with me during the last quarter of 2012. As I go about preparing for the holidays, creating fun things and organizing around my home, I will share ideas to inspire you, tips to motivate you and insight to enlighten you.
