ArtyParty

 

 Come join Tamara Laporte and Jane Davenport for 2 wonderful days making art, making friends and exploring the beautiful natural settings of the South Downs in East Sussex near Lewes & Brighton (UK)! :0)

You will have the opportunity to be taught by artist extraordinaire Jane “Danger” Davenport who is a widely exhibited & licensed artist, prize-winning author, avid Art Journaler and very popular teacher of creative, mixed media workshops. She is an art supply GURU, has a cool online store called the Institute of Cute and is based in Byron Bay, Australia

You will also be taught by Tamara Laporte (moi!) who is a mixed media artist, illustrator and art teacher to thousands. She loves making a creative mess and has an unhealthy obsession with brayering paint. Her work has been published in several magazines and she is deeply passionate about helping people get in touch with their creative fire. She would love to help YOU too to get in touch with the artist in you!

About the Workshop

Jane and I plan to share our mixed media art hints and tips with you! We’ll show you how to draw some wonderful whimsical characters, create beautiful backgrounds, explore fabulous art techniques and you can pick our brains on whatever it is you’ve always wanted to know! The groups will be small so there is plenty of space & time for personal interaction with both of us. :)

You’ll spend one full day learning from Tam and one full day learning from Jane. Lunch is provided at the house and we can go for walks around the neighbourhood after class or in our breaks. If you’re staying around a bit longer you can also explore the popular towns of Brighton & Lewes which are very nearby.

It will be a fun and intense whirlwind of a weekend, creating whimsical, beautiful, mixed-media faces and figures. Lots of drawing and painting techniques for making gorgeous artwork and letting your creativity flow from your heart and onto the page.

Be prepared to laugh, make friends, create fabulous art, have fun and explore the beautiful natural settings around my house set in the beautiful country side of East Sussex.

Participants are best served by having completed at least one of my (and/or Jane’s) online classes. This is so you are warmed up and ready to wring the best out of us and the workshops. You will feel comfortable and eager to move beyond the basics and into more exciting territory if you are familiar with our styles and teaching styles.
