Abracadabra ziggidy zoo, ala kazam, bippity boppity BOO; iiiiiit’s BLOG HOP & Give Away Tiiiiime! :) Weeeee! :)
Soooo, not long to go until Ever After 2017, my newest collaborative fairy-tale course will go on sale (17th May)! But before it does, we like to basically throw a mahoosive give-away arty blog hop party! :D It involves dancing singing, eating lots of muffins and singing Disney songs together (♫♪ under the sea … under the sea ♫♪ a dream is a wish … your heart makes ♪♫)! ;)
If you’re new to me and the blog, let me tell you a little about Ever After:
Ever After is my newest collaborative course! We ran it for the first time last year and it was a great success! It is a rather magical course because it has a ‘Fairytale Theme’ AND a in the second (full) package we focus on style development too! I’ve been running art courses for so many years now and really wanted to finally offer an in depth course where students could focus on developing their own style!! (The question: “how do you develop your own style” is the top nr 1 most frequently asked question in my inbox!). It will run over 4 months, starting July 1st.
If you’re not ready for style development yet then you can just buy the 1st package on its own which simply is an awesome mixed media art class with a fairytale theme taught by some of your most favourite artists and fabulous teachers in our beautiful mixed media community! Each teacher has chosen a fairytale and will let their fairytale (or myth/ magical story) inspire their lesson). I’m excited to let you know who will be involved today! We will let the fairy tales inspire our paintings and our story telling. The messages and symbolism of these tales and myths can help us develop our own voice, to be truer to ourselves and creative story telling abilities, I’m so excited to share the beautiful lessons with you! :)
Additionally we’ll look at how we can start telling new and different stories based on the original fairy tales (eg: how about Snow White saves the prince instead?) Or how about Alice on a motorcycle? How about twisting and changing the fairy tales so that your wish comes true? The options are endless and super super fun!! :)
The style development segment is going to be so full of information, hints and tips, special assignments, a big juicy workbook, informative videos, demonstrations on how to derive inspiration and then take ideas to develop your style, self discovery (style development is all about getting to know yourself and telling the story of YOU, you know) and so much more. I’m super excited about this course – students too LOVED it last year! :)
I hope you’ll join this course. It’s suitable for beginners and the more experienced! I’ve been running many courses since late 2008 and have made MANY students happy over the years! :) Read all the love, positive feedback and testimonials on THIS PAGE.
So who will be teaching on Ever After 2017?
An amazing group of artists and teachers! Check ‘m out! ->
+ Visionary Artist and Teacher Flora Bowley, will be contributing to the Style Development Segment only.
I’m very excited about this fabulous group of people who all have varied yet related styles which lend themselves well to the fairy tale themes of the lesson and also the style development segment of the course. :) Are you getting as excited as meeeeee?! :)
