a mixed media portrait class
Let’s play with color and texture!
In this online class we’re going to create this beautiful, colorful, mixed media portrait. We’ll be using various supplies, such as homemade spray paints, charcoal and pastel, and work in multiple colors, to create a dreamy and soft look.
Working with spray paints is fun and exciting because the outcome is always different, with interesting textures and unexpected results. It’s a great way to learn to work with an open mind, be creative, and embrace any ‘happy accidents’ that might occur along the way.
Working with what arises in front of you and responding in a creative way, that’s what we’re going to do in this fun mixed media portrait class!
The total duration of this class is 2 hours. You can download all videos and course materials, to keep forever. And since this is a self-study class, you get instant access – so you can start right away or whenever you like.
