19R235C-A - Fabulous Faces

19R235C-A - Fabulous Faces19R235C-A - Fabulous Faces

Creating faces we like can be a challenge for many. But fear not! I have a very simple, step-by-step solution to making fabulous faces you are sure to be proud of! Whether you are a beginner or have a little experience drawing faces, this workshop is for you! We will first focus on learning the proportions of realistic faces and then, from there, learn how to create stylized, or more dramatic and unique faces with character and life in their eyes. I’ll show you several tricks that make creating faces a joy in your art journal, as well as how to give the face some realistic shading and highlights that add depth and character. We’ll work with all my favorite art supplies and techniques including: oil pastel and watercolor/spray resists, stencils, stamps, collage, and tools to create texture, colorful DIY collage paper, adding texture with modeling paste, oil paint sticks for shading and highlighting – just to name a few!  

Materials fee includes a kit of all my favorite collage papers (vintage, patterned, handmade, tissue, etc.), Stabilo Marks-all pencil, and special texture items, as well as shared use of all paint, spray ink, stencils, stamps, extra collage and tissue paper, texture tools, collage medium, and brushes.

Level: Novice and above

Student Supply List:
*9"x12" (or larger) art journal with mixed-media, heavyweight paper (such as Canson XL, Strathmore)
*Shiva Oil Paint Sticks (Titanium White and Yellow Ochre)

Tuition $125
Materials Fee $15
