WOW2 begins with drawing basics, moves through developing backgrounds, adding pretty embellishments, & ends with creating adorable animal friends. In addition, WOW2 features beautiful healing, introspective, & non-violent communication ideas & methods that uplift the heart & feed the mind.

If you want to learn to draw and paint whimsical characters and animals then Whimsy II would be the course for you to invest in. There are a lot of courses much like it online, this one has more detailed information plus the healing portion just rounds it out to make it a complete experience.

“A lovely art course intertwining art techniques with self-healing and spiritual growth. It offers plenty of opportunity for feedback from the artist who creates a safe, welcoming and fun learning environment at all times =)”
“Very enjoyable, relaxing, friendly, and knowledgeable. I was really amazed at how much you care about the people who sign up, it is not all about the money. When you reached out to those of us who do not particapate, I am one of those, it made me feel that I wasn’t a number and that you are an angel!” Alana Churchill,

“An artful, intuitive, wacky, fun, learning experience.”
– Leesdy Medina

“Its fun and will get you creating. Its non-competitive, relaxed, supportive.

Tam is incredibly generous with her time. Lessons consist of videos each week, PDFs, live upstream chat and critiques. This is where Tam really shines as she takes each persons uploaded drawings and gives very specific visual suggestions by manipulating the images in Photoshop. Can you imagine the time this must take?

I was super engaged and really enjoying the whole Group experience. There are some wonderful artists involved, lots of beginners and people rediscovering their artistic talents. It is a nurturing experience. The forum around the lessons is very active and Tam is completely involved. Having the course leader putting energy into the discussions makes such a huge difference. I have so much admiration for her. She really has created a happy place for making art.

What I got out of it: I am really having fun just being free and drawing whimsical characters! I have at least one that wants his own book I have started experimenting with techniques, incorporating my photography. I am having so much FUN!

Highly recommended!”

Jane Davenport, Byron Bay, Australia

“This course is easy and pressure free. You will learn so much while having fun you won’t believe it. Tam is a great teacher with no pressure or judgement. Her videos are very clear so, it’s easy to do what you see her demonstrate. This course is a good mix of serious, funny and just being human. Sign up… you won’t be sorry.”
-Sherree Givens

“This is an amazing course that can take even the most basic person that draws stick figures and turn them in to someone that will not only be a better drawer but will love thier drawings and feelings of accomplishments. Not to mention the feeling of being a better perosn for having done the internal as well as external work.”
– Heidy Sutherland, Australia
