I’m very excited to teach at The Face Painting Shop this August! These workshops will help you take your face paintings to the next level by showing you how to take stunning designs and break them down into easy steps. You will learn how to create designs that have stunning flow, dynamic color combinations, and excellent placement.
In my “Creative Masks” class you will learn how to paint stunning designs by using consistent line work, seamless blending, and contrasting colors. In my “Animals and Butterflies” class I will teach you how to create eye catching face paintings that while come to life by placing them in key areas, having good flow and achieving perfect placement. Finally, in my “Monsters & Skulls” class I will teach you how to create striking monster and skull faces. You will learn the importance of proportion, highlights, and shadows in monster designs.
We will be working at a fast pace so please be ready to learn.
My goal is to leave you feeling inspired with a variety of new techniques you can apply to your own designs. Things to bring: A practice head if you have one, #1, #3, #6 round brush, face painting sponges, a 12-14 color palette, (any brand is fine.) Make sure to book early to secure your spot and I look forward to meeting you!
