Hello everyone!

I have some wonderful & exciting news! I am going to be teaching on Life Book 2016 next year! It’s my 5th year and I am just so pleased to be part of Lifebook and so proud of Tam and her team for making it happen!

First let me tell you a bit more about Life Book in case you haven’t heard about it yet!
“Life Book, a celebration and honouring of YOU” is a year-long mixed media art class organised by Tamara Laporte from Willowing Arts.buttonLB2016-round3-500

23 incredible art teachers are all gearing up to share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU! Themed around self-development and healing, you’ll be creating several loose mixed media art journal pages per month which by the end of the year you will bind into a glorious journal (a Life Book)! You will have a wonderful keepsake that you can treasure for the rest of your life!

You can find out a lot more about this wildly popular course (it has been joined by over 8700 people in the past!) by clicking HERE .

My class is called ‘Shadow Lands’. We will be exploring the landscape of the face by adding shadowy watercolours.  I’m excited to be sharing techniques with you!
favourite-things2Registration opens on October 5th 2015 and the class begins on January 1st 2016.

So if you want to start the year with a fabulous creative BANG and spend 2016 with a wonderful creative community of like-minded souls, learning more about art and how to be kinder and more loving towards yourself, be sure to join once registration opens! 🙂
Please keep this page bookmarked so that you can sign up the moment it goes on sale! 🙂

  • Isabelle

    Thank you so much for the giveaway dear Jane! I would love to win a spot in LifeBook 2016 for the inspiration, community and magic it possesses. In large part due to revelations that occurred during one of the LifeBook 2012 class, my life started to change and I am so grateful. Again, thank you so much for YOU and the magic you share.

  • Tara Medrano

    I am in LB 2015 and really enjoy it. I love that I can work at my own pace, that I can see other’s work (too shy to show my own); and that I am learning so much. This is the one place where we are exposed to so many artists with so many different preferences and styles. I tend to only do faces. For whatever reason when I sit down to draw it is always a face. LB lets me do that but also helps me with courage to expand into other areas. There are so many different faces to draw but I still keep drawing the same style of face. I just need to keep going forward and LB 2016 is the way to do that. I would love a free slot. Thanks for being so inspiring!

  • Andrea thompson

    Thanks so much for the chance to win… Looks like so much fun!

  • Gayle Turner Eckert

    What better way than be motivated all year long, with other individuals that help keep the artistic juices flowing.



  • Aino-Mari Kämppi

    I did all that was requested and here’s why: they are the only way (with scolarships of course) for Life Book to be possible for me, since every cent available goes towards my studies to become an OT. Yet I’d really need some psychological support that Life Book tends to give to people attending.

    Jane and Tam my favourite team!!!! I haven’t had the opportunity to do LB yet but it is on my wish list right after Joynal … Too many fantastic classes to choose from … You offer so many fantastic opportunities to grow and develop as an artist … What is an apprentice artomologist to do?

  • Mandy

    I would love to be a part of Lifebook 2016, because I’m craving balance in my life right now…..this year has been such a big year of changes for me, with my youngest child starting school and me immediately returning to work outside of the home. It feels like everything has been turned topsy-turvy, with my art unfortunately taking a back seat :S It’s time to set things to rights! Not to mention, I *adore* your classes! Very much looking forward to your contribution 🙂

  • N. Perez

    I just love Jane Davenport! I have learned so much from her & am a better artistic. It would be an honor to be a part of anything she is involved with.

  • Tracee Jones

    I would like to win a spot in Life Book 2016 because I am a single mom of 4 and struggle every day. I am an art teacher and give so much of myself everyday to the students, I adore. I give all of myself to my students and my children and I have nothing left for ME. It’s been so long since I have been able to do anything for myself I have forgotten what it feels like. I love my children and they are my life. I am going through a particularly rough spot in my life and could really use some art healing. Thank you for this opportunity and thank you for giving me little bits of happiness through the internet. I adore you and your bright, shining personality. I hope you share your goodness for many years to come.
