$ 185  

Drawing faces is based on a formula....but how far can we push that formula to create expressive, interesting faces? As I continue my drawing journey, my faces have moved to be more and more abstract. In this class I’ll go over the techniques and principles I use to draw expressive (and yes, maybe weird) faces. We’ll concentrate on line quality, mark-making, different views, and exaggeration
 

Instructor will provide:

handout
stencils and stamps for sharing
collage fodder for sharing
 

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

Your art journal
9x12 Watercolor or mixed media paper pad, student grade is fine (I like Cason XL). We need lots of paper to play on!
Acrylic gesso
Acrylic paints
Marking tools like Scribble Sticks, Stabilo All pencils, etc.
Spray bottle with water
Paint brushes
Wipes/paper towels/water container to wash brushes
Gel medium
Gel plate, any size should work fine.
Your favorite stencils.
OPTIONAL One or two small canvases or wood panels, if you want to create on a substrate other than paper. Or, you can skip the canvases/panels and just work on paper. Up to you.
Plain collage paper tissue or deli paper
