Down the rabbit hole...


I just turned 38 on the 15th and celebrated with passion! In recent month my art took into few exciting directions with teaching online and discovering fresh ideas in creating art. I was invited to teach in 3 placed through online video tutorials in 2016, two of which Life Book 2016 (2 entries) and Stencil Girls Products (I will be making there 3 entries next year!), and third multiple teachers workshop which I am not allowed to reveal just yet (but soon!). Meanwhile my 1st workshop Creating Soulful Art With A Story have began and sky-rocketed to the stars with positive feedback from 200 hundred students and all the incredible artworks they have created:



And here is one of the numerous feedbacks received:

I spent yesterday morning and evening watching all the videos and the whole time I was saying "yes, yes, YES!" Sometimes you find an artist that just helps you grow and I definitely found that in Annie. - Jennifer Congora Perry

More testimonials and student artworks you can see HERE. Registration is still open and I am available for support until end of September.

While the workshop was unfolding in all it's beauty, I've been buzy collaging and journalling to my heart content. I created a series of 12 of these cute 6.5'X9.5' Alice in Wonderland Cards that I just adore. I have been wanting to do that for years and finally decided to go ahead and make my childish dream come true. To make these collages I re-purposed baby first words cards:



And here is the result:













And last, but not least, please have a look at this amazing review this talented writer Elizabeth Cooper wrote on my workshops. Being a professional writer, Elizabeth was always fascinated with story art, so she took my workshop on Creating Soulful Art With a Story to discover new ways of exploring her interest through paint. This well written and very positive review left me surprised, humbled and very inspired as a teacher:

My new workshop and video-fun collaboration with Tallulah


Just an update on what I've been up to recently... I have taken a giant leap towards online teaching these past two months, so at home I teach art to Tallulah (or she teachers me?), and online I teach other artists, or shall I say I share all my art experience, tips and tricks with all of you – wonderful creative souls. This is one of the artworks I created for my workshop: AnnieHamman-Apple

The workshop is already full and registration is closing tomorrow, Friday 28th. It's called “Creating Soulful Art With A Story” and starts on 7th September 2015. Although it is only 1 week workshop, it has 8 comprehensive instructional videos and might take 2-3 weeks for students to work through. Good news is – I will be available for full support for the duration of whole September. Registration will ten re-open on 1st October on a self-study basis. More info here (if PayPal button there is gone, it means registration is closed).

I was also excited to receive invitations to teach on other 2 large and popular workshops in 2016, but on that I will talk in a few days. For now it’s a SECRET and I hope you can keep it just for few days longer. :)

Me and Tallulah have been busy experimenting with collaboration on painting faces, taking turns on various stages of the face, and pulling each other into different directions. Well, she definitely pulled me into her direction. I started out with sombre palette, but she moved me into more loose, more abstract and more vibrant face. Her contribution have definitely gave it a more layered intriguing look. Have a look at this fun fast paced 10 minutes video of our collaboration:

To read more about Tallulah Jade Rainbow and her painting process, and also to see more videos of her painting large abstract paintings, please visit her personal blog: rainbowgirl.co.za

Tallulah is a professional artist who held her 1st solo art exhibition at the age of 3 at Bellini Gallery, here in Hermanus, with approximately 30 canvases displayed.
