The Heart of Art – A Free Art Course

I just wanted to let you all know about my wonderful friend Tam. She is literally one of the nicest, kindest and most generous souls you will ever meet and I feel so privileged to call her my friend! I could probably write a whole blog post about how wonderful she is, but I’m getting off topic!

Since a couple of years ago Tam has been running several art classes online. World of Whimsy where you learn to create whimsical characters and complex mixed media backgrounds. Awesome Art Journal, a course about everything to do with creating art journal pages. Fabulous Faces where she teaches how to create more realistic portraits and the rules/techniques behind front facing, three-quarter and profile portraits. All of these courses were (and are, as they are available on DVD) incredible and helpful, however the only downside for a lot of people was that you did have to pay for them.

To help out those that can’t afford her courses, she is now offering a FREE COURSE!! It is a four week course that will cover some really exciting techniques and will also focus on healing through art. I seriously can’t wait! Below is a video where Tam explains about the course.

Head over to and sign up! I know I mentioned this before but IT IS FREE!! (Classes usually cost around $60) Another great thing about her courses is the amazing community of people who take them. It’s such a nice place to share art and get inspired around like minded individuals who won’t judge you. Hope to see you there!!

  1. Oh well done Tam, that’s such a nice gesture! I know how good her classes are for developing creatives, particularly those struggling with self-confidence/self-worth issues. I hope it’s a big success!

  2. awwww. thank YOUOUOUOUOU :)))

    it was SO lovely to see you this Saturday!!! xoxo

  3. I’ve just signed up the colour me beautiful face class – I’m so excited! I’m going to check this out too. Thanks for sharing xx

  4. Hey Iris, I forgot where I got your domain from, but I was just browsing by and thought I’d let you I’m adding you to my domain. I hope you don’t mind? Anyway, that’s very nice of Tam to offer a class for free that’s worth $60.00 bucks a class. I think? Anyway, I’m into drawing but I can’t draw all that well; at all. I have to look at the picture in order to draw it. I can’t draw on my own. It’s like something doesn’t trigger off in my brain to try and draw something on my own ya know? Anyway, I’m rambling. I hope to hear from you soon!

    • Hi Jamie, if you want to you should join the class! It’s really fun. I’m the same as you, I can’t really draw stuff without looking at an example. I really struggled (and still do) with that, you know that ‘not good enough’ feeling, as if drawing from an example is somehow lesser art. But lots of famous painters obviously did the same! They’d have models posing for them or they’d set up a still life and paint it.
