Join the ONLINE WORKSHOP!
If you have purchased my book elsewhere, you can still join in all the fun and register for the workshop only!
I adore drawing faces and playing with colour! It helps makes me feel inspired and happy. The reason I teach is because I want this for everyone. Whether you want to make art as a pastime or as your profession makes no difference. As long as you enjoy the process rather than being fixated on the end result, you will keep at it. Growing and glowing! I would love to help you create the artful faces of your dreams.
The Online Workshop brings the book to life! As I created “Drawing and Painting Beautiful Faces’ I filmed the whole process. I will be going in to my Face Math (TM) Methods in depth and further explaining concepts from the book.
I have designed the Workshop to have 8 weeks of Lessons. But you have Lifetime Access so you can take your time and re-visit the materials, although I will encourage you to keep to my schedule, just because I want to see you get the most from the Workshop! I have a full list of FAQ’s for your reference here.
Things may change, but this is my planned Lesson list:
- LESSON 1: Art Materials, organisation and Warmup!
- LESSON 2: FACE MATH (TM)
- LESSON 3: Longitude & Latitude
- LESSON 4: The Features in Detail: Eyes, Eyebrows, Nose , Ears and Lips
- LESSON 5: Hair ( yes, finally a whole lesson on hair!)
- LESSON 6: In Depth Exploration from the book with a focus on turned faces.
- LESSON 7: In Depth Exploration from the book with a focus on different skin tones.
- LESSON 8: In Depth Exploration from the book with a focus on collage and wild color.
The Classroom will open on my Art School on March 1st.
The Classroom will run as a ‘Live’ class for the first 8 weeks, and then be open for self-guided study. A ‘Live’ class simply means that the Lessons are revealed week by week, rather than all the material being available when you start the class. You don’t need to be at the compter at a certain time ie: I won’t be appearing on your screen Live.
You will be sent your class Access in the a week prior to the class.
PLEASE NOTE: The book is an integral part of the Workshop, and you must have a copy to participate.
