Hello everyone! I have some wonderful & exciting news! Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts has written a 2nd book! It’s called ‘Ever After: Create Fairy Tale-Inspired Mixed-Media Art Projects to Develop Your Personal Artistic Style’ and I get to give away a copy! Let me tell you a bit more about Tam’s new book in case you haven’t heard about it yet!

Let me tell you a bit more about Tam’s new book in case you haven’t heard about it yet!

Based on one of Tamara’s popular series of online classes, Ever After addresses the most frequently asked question she receives from her students: “How do I develop my own creative style?” In addition to the beautiful art lessons created especially for this book by Tamara and eight other noted mixed-media artists, each chapter offers creative exercises that invite readers to explore stories, their symbolism, and a specific aspect of style development as they work toward and ultimately achieve their artistic goals.

• The Story of You. Explore the experiences, feelings, and ideas that stir your passion, and how to adapt and change motifs and other visual elements to make them your own.
• Inspiration: How to Find It, How to Use It. Examine how to stay open to inspiration, incorporate it into your art practice, and integrate it into your artwork.
• Comfort Zones & Productivity. Learn strategies for working through your fear and dedicating time to your artmaking.
• Dealing with Challenges & Deepening Your Voice. Find guidance for starting a mindfulness practice to help you deal with harsh feedback, and for allowing yourself the joy of continually evolving your story, your message, and your style.
Ever After will teach you to tell your own unique stories through artmaking so that your wish—to become the artist you’ve always wanted to be—is sure to come true! Guest Teachers
