Ever After 2017 Blog Hop

Hello everyone!

I have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on –  Ever After this year! PLUS even MORE exciting news is that I can GIVE AWAY 1 FREE SPOT on this magical new collaborative art course! Keep reading if you want to find out more about Ever After and if you want to find out how you can win a spot! :)

First let me tell you a bit more about Ever After in case you haven’t heard about it yet! “Ever After” is a mixed media art & style development course with a fairytale theme hosted by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 15 popular mixed media art teachers who will all share beautiful fairy-tale & myth inspired lessons with you AND they will also divulge all their hints and tips on how they developed their own style and how YOU TOO can find your own unique voice as an artist! :) Yay! You can find out all the details (and sign up with the Early Bird price) by clicking HERE

My chosen tale is Hades & Persephone! My lesson will be inspired by this myth and I already have some fabulous ideas brewing! I’ve not fully developed my lesson idea yet, but I’m excited to be sharing an expressive style of portraiture, involving layering of different media and glazing techniques! Our goal will be to create mystery, beauty and atmosphere. I’m thinking rich colors, moodiness and emotion….all my favorite elements… similar to some of my other portraits…

Registration opens on May 17th 2017 and the class begins on July 1st 2017.

So, if you want to start your summer drawing and painting fairy-tales and myths, exploring your own personal story and style and hang out with a wonderful creative community of like-minded souls, be sure to join once registration opens! :)
