Fairy Tales and Art: The Perfect Giveaway!

I have always been drawn to fairy tales, folktales, and myths. As a child I was drawn to them on a gut level.  As an adult I've studied them from a Jungian perspective, which has made me love them even more.  They are powerful stories with transformative power.

I have always loved art too.  Creating it, admiring it, owning it.  Since retiring from teaching (High School English) in 2014, I have spent most of my time painting.

Now artist Tam LaPorte has created a new multi-instructor mixed media art workshop called Ever After - it's all about fairy tales, and each instructor is giving a way a spot!!  I am entering this wonderful giveaway, and offering you the opportunity to do the same.  One of the wonderful artists taking part in this workshop is Effy Wild.  You can enter her giveaway by clicking here: Ever After Giveaway
