Express Yourself is an in-depth online Workshop that explores how to successfully convey a whole range of human emotion into your mixed media portraits. In this class I show my secrets for creating beautiful and expressive faces, full of feeling !
There are 9 Lessons.
Each one has a multitude of emotions to explore.
Preparing your Express yourself journal and creating a helpful ‘Emotion Map’!
Building on The Emotion Map from lesson one we start to flesh out detail in quick sketches.
It’s all in the lips
A lesson involving socks and a lemon that will have you looking at eyes in a whole new way!
Take a face from childhood into adulthood.
Downturned faces can evoke gentle feelings of shyness or being coy, wistful, dreamy or sleepy.
The power of eyebrows!
Determined, haughty, arrogant and beautiful upturned faces
Everyone loves a happy ending!
Express Yourself has as 9 detailed and carefully structured lessons devoted to deepening your creative skills and confidence.
The classroom is supplemented with a private community on Facebook just for sharing artwork from this workshop.
The classes are video based. I talk you through each of the art supplies, what they do and show you how to use them through a variety of drawing projects and exercises.
Let me just emphasise that you don’t need all the art supplies in the universe to complete your Homework. You can use whatever art tools you have. You will learn new ways of using what you do have, and be able to pinpoint what you may like to add to your creative life in the future without expensive trial and error.
I suggest these as essentials for all my classes:
I loved this class! So much fun and I learned so many things. Can't wait to see what the next class will be. You are an amazing teacher Jane!
Watching the flip through the final video, I kept thinking, "I drew a face like that! I have faces just like those!" Look what we accomplished in just two months! So glad I still have unfinished classes of yours waiting. Will keep me busy until you reveal something new. Happy to be on this journey together.
Jane once again you have provided a fantastic class full of skills and tasks and techniques and most importantly lots of laughs. Another group of artists has been connected via Facebook and we have also learnt a lot from each other. I'm way behind as usual and I'm so glad that we have this class for a year. Thank you so much Jane. You are amazing
All of these people that live in our pencils and pens are facets of ourselves that want to be heard.!
