Default any teachers around the Rhode Island area?

Hi, I just ordered an artisan w/ co2 pedal control and would like to recieve some sort of formal teaching about the basics of engraving. I have ordered some books and a dvd, as well as the needed equipment to get started. Any help in finding someone would be very helpful.

If you are having a hard time finding people check out steves vids of him doing the SR johnson knife and practice plate. He also has a video page of how to get started with your airgraver. Best thing to do with anything you start or learn is to take your time.
