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.

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! :)
