About the event

Painting over a magazine image is a great way to practice painting portraits, flower’s or whatever subject matter you choose. I like to select a photo with a lot of contrast, my preference is a close-up of a women’s face.

Students will learn multiple mixed-media techniques for creating a beautiful background creating layers and depth using collage paper, acrylic paint and stencils. Together we will create our backgrounds from the techniques we just learned. I will be there to walk you through the process step-by-step and I always recommend approaching this process with a playful, non-judgmental and exploratory spirit!

Classes include technique demonstrations as well as independent working time for you.

Once we have our background, it’s time to bring in our focal point. I will demonstrate different shading, highlighting, sketching and painting techniques to bring your Image to life. Following the demonstration each participant will begin creating their own Unique Painting.

At the end of the Workshop, you will walk away with a plethora of surface texture altering and layering & painting techniques You can play with these learned techniques at home, even touch up you’re painting at home and soon after practice, you’ll be pleasantly surprised of your growth! 

Every student will leave with a finished painting ready for hanging.
