  40. Shauna Ferrell

    Last year was so much fun. I’m so excited for this years lineup of teachers and what everyone has in store for us. I can’t wait! Hurry up July 1st!!

  41. bonnie sato

    This class looks like it would be a good way for me to “let go” of perfection and wanting my art to look realistic. At 67 years old, I need to play and use my imagination. I love the colors and free looking characters in the ad post. I am looking for some enchantment and my own style.

  42. Angela

    How exciting is this! So many artists I admire are teaching in this course! And what a course! Style development, fairy tales, awesome artists. Yes, I’d love to join you all in this amazing adventure. I would love to learn better techniques for developing and focusing in on my own style and interpreting that style through the various mediums we work with. Thank you!!! <3

  43. I really love fantasy and fairy tales. As a kid – and even now – I love reading about fantasy and fairytales.

    I think this would be the perfect course for me. I can honestly say that art and fantasy has both saved my life on many occasions. I’ve lived with arthritis and fibromyalgia for years now (I’m 26). Art really helps me a lot in my life. I don’t really have a lot of money, being unable to work, but I would love to be a part of Ever After and learn more.

    Also, your art is amazing! I’d love to learn from you. <3

    Shared your blog on Twitter and Google+.

  84. I would love to win a spot!! I am exploring 2d art and loving it but have limited finances for classes. I am a 3d artist (metalsmith) but have taken on a foster baby (she’s 9 months old now!) and find it difficult to get into my metals studio with her around. Painting/drawing etc is something I can do more readily with her napping etc. It is helping to fill a creative void. I subscribed to your newsletter. Thanks for the chance(s) !
