as some of you may remember, I was teaching a children’s art camp over summer at the palos verdes art center. well, I’m thrilled to announce that I have been invited to teach a one day art journaling workshop! (I’m also teaching a weekly ‘mommy & me’ style art class…but more on that later…)
the workshop I will be teaching is my ‘illustrated mini portraits’ class. this was a course I developed a while back while I was painting a lot of figures into my journals (like the one seen in the flyer above). registration is now open, and if you’re in the so cal area you can make a day trip out of it! did I also mention the pv art center is just beautiful? here’s all the details:
ILLUSTRATED MINI-PORTRAITS // ART JOURNALING
Saturday, 2/20, 10am-4pm (with a one hour lunch break)
This art journaling course takes you through the process of creating a two-page journal spread that includes an illustrated portrait or figure. Through step-by-step instruction, we will begin by building preliminary layers within our journal pages using a variety of mixed media techniques. After building up a foundation, you will then learn how to plan, draw and paint an illustrative style portrait into your spread. This portrait instruction also includes variations of how to approach drawing the face and features, contouring using multiple layers of color, and detailing facial features in pen.
go here to register, and I hope to see some of you in class! xo
