The Wall Wizard is scheduled to Edutain at many of our Fall Shows! Brian Santos to share painting tips and tricks in Corpus, San Antonio and El Paso!

Brian_Santos_clearback2Learn painting tips and tricks and how to hang wall coverings in a flash with seminars all weekend from Brian Santos.
Santos, a fourth-generation painting contractor and author of best-selling how-to books, uses “edutaining” demonstrations in his television appearances and how-to’s for industry giants like Sherwin-Williams, Imperial Wall coverings, Home Depot and Lowe’s, and at home and garden shows throughout the world to create wall magic whether it be with paint, paper, or fabric.
Over a more than 25 year touring career, Santos has developed a series of “Wizard Workshops” that educate and empower audiences with simple tips, tricks, and techniques to help them tackle projects around the house with confidence.
Catch Brian’s “Wizard Workshop” to say “I can” to your next painting projects, he will show you how a trash bag, some lip balm and cling wrap all become painting tools, in ways you never could have imagined and you already have them laying around the house!

anne-rueAlso, on our celeb stage, Anne Rue of HGTV’s Design Star and the Travel Channel’s Hotel Impossible Designer will be sending you home with easy, professional design tips and behind-the-scenes insight as well!
Anne’s interiors can best be described as an organic extension of her clients’ personalities. Her inspiration for interior design grew out of her love of fashion. Rue’s grandmother taught her to sew at the age of eight, and she began her career by designing her own clothes. Building upon her childhood devotion, Rue initially earned a degree in fashion design from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale before further cultivating her keen eye for details with a degree in interior design from Seminole State College. She earned her stripes as a design student working her way through college before eventually opening Anne Rue Interiors in 2000.
