A new round of my charcoal portrait class The Many Faces of Charcoal is going to start in just a few weeks! I’m so excited about this class, and behind the scenes I’m working hard to get everything ready on time so that the registration next week can open smoothly. 🙂

And what’s more: I’m going to give away one free spot! Yay! So continue reading below to find out more about this class and how you can enter the giveaway.

About this class

The Many Faces of Charcoal is an online charcoal portrait course which runs for six weeks.

Each week we’ll start with an exercise to get familiar with the supplies and loosen up a little. Then we’ll do a full, in-dept project in which we’re going to create a charcoal portrait from start to finish. Every project will be different, using different techniques or styles. I will show and tell you exactly what I do and why I do it, so you can learn & practice the techniques and implement them in the future in your own style.

You get lifetime access to the course website and all videos can be downloaded, so you can keep them forever.

Doing this class would be such an amazing opportunity to develop my art style with portraits as it is my favourite subject to create 💗 shared on facebook

    I forwarded your Giveaway for MANY FACES OF CHARCOAL on my Facebook page so it will reach all my friends on social media.

  58. I shared on FB. I’d love to win this class. I haven’t painted in 2 yrs because I’m in a painting dark hole and this class would help get back my mojo.

  59. I started drawing with charcoal this year. I am loving the way charcoal allows me to be soft and also dramatic in the way I draw especially faces. It’s dirty, and fun .
    I love Juna’s style with people drawing, it just speaks to me, I can tell straight away its her drawing.
    I loved the video from the Rijks Museum, what a wonderful way to show the art.
    I would love to learn in this 6 week course .
