The workshop is 52 weeks of 1-3 lessons a week with different teachers. The first week was with the creator of Lifebook, Tamara Laporte, someone whose classes I have taken in the past, and artwork I greatly admire.
Our first lesson was a warm-up exercise having to do with our word or mantra for the year.
So much fun with vintage and scrapbook papers, Neocolor II crayons, paint, washi tape, and rubber stamps on 1 page!
Our next lesson was also with Tamara and she demonstrated how to draw and paint a whimsical face to create a Beacon of Light to encourage and inspire us throughout the year.
One of the things I love most about Tamara's teaching style is how she breaks everything down (via video) into simple steps using easy shapes and brushstrokes to follow. She is a very calming and lighthearted teacher as well - very easy to feel comfortable even if it's your very first time drawing a face.
I am so excited for what is to come! Watch this space for more as I share my Lifebook journey with you.
