Ever After 2017 with Stephen Lursen


Ever After 2017 - Blog Hop & Give Away! ____________________________________________________

Hello everyone!

I have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Ever After this year! I am so honored and proud to be one of the selected teachers and my hope is to meet new artists and students through this amazing opportunity from Willowing Arts.

And even MORE exciting news is that I can GIVE AWAY ONE SPACE on this magical new collaborative art course! Keep reading if you want to find out more about Ever After and if you want to find out how you can win a spot! :)

First let me tell you a bit more about Ever After in case you haven't heard about it yet!

Ever Afteris a mixed media art & style development course with a fairytale theme hosted by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts in Great Britain. Tam is joined by 15 popular mixed media art teachers who will all share beautiful fairy-tale & myth inspired lessons with you AND we will also divulge all our hints and tips on how we developed our own style and how YOU TOO can find your own unique voice as an artist!

You can find out all the details (and sign up with the Early Bird price) by clicking HERE.

My chosen fairy tale is Peter Pan! My online painting workshop and lesson will be inspired by this fairy tale and I have some cool ideas I’m working through that will help you incorporate yourself into your painting. Essentially I want to show you how you can insert your own personality (and likeness) into a fairytale or story! I've not fully developed my class idea yet, but I'm excited to be sharing a combination of landscape painting, atmospheric perspective, drawing, collage, and painting with you, much like you can see in this painting, but with more characters and elements to tell part of the Peter Pan story:

Registration opens on May 17th 2017 and the class begins on July 1st 2017.

So if you want to start your summer drawing and painting fairy-tales, exploring your own personal story, style, and hang out with a wonderful creative community of like-minded souls, be sure to join once registration opens! :) Keep this page bookmarked so that you can sign up the moment it goes on sale! :)

Now then, onto the give-away and blog hop! :) I can GIVE AWAY ONE SPACE on Ever After (valued at $126 U.S.) to 1 lucky winner, yay! :) And if you follow the blog hop (see below for links and dates) you can up your chances of winning a space by entering all the other giveaways also! :)

How to enter the give-away:

  1. Share this give-away on Facebook with a clever or excited post, and leave it there for at least one week to give me the chance to go through my notifications to see that you shared it.

  2. Sign up to my newsletter
  3. Leave a comment below this blog post letting me know why you would love to join Ever After this year.

    One of the things I’m most excited about with Ever After 2017 is the opportunity to learn from dynamic artists like yourself. I’m looking forward to exploring more styles as I work toward uncovering my own unique style. Thank you for this opportunity to win a spot in this course.
