Willowing Arts | Life Book 2018
“Life Book, a celebration and honouring of YOU”, is a year-long mixed media art class organised by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts.
Tam is joined by 34 incredible artists, crafters and healers who are all gearing up to share their art, crafting and personal growth techniques with YOU!
With a holistic approach to creativity, self-development and healing, you’ll be creating several loose mixed media art journal pages per month which by the end of the year you will bind into a glorious journal (a Life Book)!
This year you will also be able to try out other art crafts like art doll making, photography and jewellery making and we will also provide you with nurturing and nourishing personal development activities (like yoga and conscious dancing) to support any personal development you’re undertaking.
Your final book with your art work in it will function as wonderful keepsake that you can treasure for the rest of your life!
In this offering, inspired by poetry and music, Amanda explores the concept of beauty and vulnerability and how the artist's devotion to living a beautiful life, might be expressed on paper.
Bonus lesson is an extension of this, using creativity to express gratitude for the beauty brought into our lives, by others.
Dirty Footprints Studio | Embody
Self Paced | Unlimited Access
The most ever changing, wildly delicate, and beautifully complicated relationship we’ll ever have in our lives is with our own body — and that’s exactly why artists throughout the ages have never stopped creating art that expresses, explores, and honors this precious gift.
In 21 SECRETS emBODY a talented team of teachers are willing, eager, and even a little nervous to share with you how their art and body powerfully connect.
As usual, 21 SECRETS emBODY is a 150+ page downloadable eBook with 25+ hours of videos, full colored photos, templates, and clear instruction that will guide you through various mixed media lessons and art journaling adventures. Though what makes this 11th edition of 21 SECRETS probably the most powerful edition yet, is that the teachers are opening their hearts in a brave and vulnerable way.
In 21 SECRETS emBODY we use mix media art and art journaling to get really honest about what’s it’s like to emBODY our own bodies. The teachers explore many important topics that have impacted their life and art making, such as self esteem, sexuality, weight, body image, chronic illness, and aging to name just a few. All while sharing a potent peek into their approach and techniques behind their creative process and perspective. Plus because this is an edition totally dedicated to the body, of course you’ll also find lessons in portraiture and figure painting too!
Amanda's lesson is an approach to witnessing our most vulnerable selves, through taking boudoir style selfies and journaling with our chosen photos.
Amanda walks you through the whole process, from styling to editing to holding your own hand, with loving kindness.
