A class to let go and have fun!
CLASSROOM IS OPEN!

Access to the class minimum 5 years
Hello my wonderful creatives!
I have become completely hooked on inventing characters and watching them come alive on canvas. I love the FREEDOM when I create.
In this class, we'll explore painting characters that are unique to you, where quirky noses, unique hair and enormous handbags are welcome. :) Be open for anything!
Let's have some fun and express it through some irresistibly fun ladies... if you don’t know how to draw a face, don’t worry, we will practice together! This class is for ALL levels.
I hope you'll join me! This promises to be a whimsical class full of discovery and exciting techniques!
Here’s a description of each of our special projects
LESSON 1 - VARIOUS EXERCISES TO GET FAMILIARIZED WITH DRAWING FACES
How to place light on a face
Get inspired and creative with hair
Creating different brush strokes
LESSON 2 - PAINTING INTUITIVE LADIES
I'll guide you through my process of how to energize the canvas with spontaneity and then move to a more observant and intuitive state. We will examine where our ladies are leading us! ;)
As you witness my process of my painting I will be giving you guidance for your own project.
LESSON 3 - LADIES WITH A PLAN
In this lesson we will be more intentional with our choice of theme and we will plan this piece out in our sketchbooks through a process of brainstorming and thumbnail sketches.
We will draw from the techniques and experiences we had in our first painting but this time with a bit more direction.
BONUS LESSON - ACCESSORIZE THE LADIES
In this super fun bonus lesson, I will show you how I add whimsical 3D accessories to my ladies! This is where your imagination can really fly.
