Artists, at the heart of it, are trying to communicate. Be it a piece of their story, beauty, sadness or a piece of their soul: They are trying to tell the stories of who they are, who we all are and what it means to be human and alive in this world of ours. - Tamara Laporte

What is Ever After?

“Ever After” is a mixed media art & style development course with a fairy tale theme hosted by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts. Tam is joined by 15 popular mixed media art teachers who will all share beautiful fairy-tale inspired lessons with you AND, in the style development segment, the teachers will also divulge all their hints and tips on how they developed their own style and how YOU TOO can find your own unique voice as an artist!

When Tamara asked me to teach in Ever After 2019, I was so honored and excited. I love the fairy tale stories that shaped my imagination. For my Ever After lesson, we will learn to paint Geppetto String. She is in memory of the unconditional love that Geppetto had for Pinocchio. Check out the class preview below…
