I found Tamara Laporte through a couple of artist friends when I was asking for a recommendation for a multi-teacher class, she and Lifebook came highly recommended. I am not exaggerating when I say that following along with Tam as she teaches you to draw and paint adorable whimsical girls has so changed my life in magical ways.
Tamara Laporte Online Mixed Media Art Classes
The most famous of Tam’s classes and now the subject of her first-ever book, “Lifebook” runs annually with an early bird pricing showing up in December through January and then for full price the remainder of the year. You really could join in at any time because for your art class purchase you are allowed do download ALL of the hundreds of video’s so you could go back at any time. The thing you would miss however is the amazingly supportive community that Tamara and her team work to create in the Facebook and Ning groups that comprise all the other artists and artists in training. You’ll find brand new mixed-media people like me, to professional artists, side by side going through the weekly lessons together. At first, it IS a bit intimidating, I won’t lie, but the support you are given when you share just a bit is a bit humbling and has brought me to tears a few times, not only for the support and help that I have received but when I’ve seen it with others in the class.
Tamara has also created a couple of stencils for mixed media artists that I simply adore and use all the time in my art journal but I’m not sure where you can purchase them now.
