Teens Painting 101 - Faces


This is a 2 part series, June 16th & June 30th.

Drawing a faces can be intimidating, so it's assumed that painting one is evening harder, right? Well, that is not true! The goal for this series is to teach you how to use light and color to bring a portrait to life. We will use simple shapes and color blocking to deconstruct a face of your choice. These will not be traditional, photorealist portraits. You will paint the image as you interpret it, and your color palette is your own.

Ages: 13 and up - no experience necessary!

Materials: All supplies are included. 

Instructor: Vanessa Frost

As a full time artist and owner of MUSEjar, Vanessa finds inspiration and joy in teaching art. Art is a language that is often forgotten about and it's amazing what happens once it's tapped into. Her background is fine art and film production, with a degree from The University of Vermont. She loves mixed media, and currently works mainly with acrylics, but she is constantly exploring and experimenting with all other mediums.

NOTE: All classes require a minimum number of students to run. Please sign up in advance to help avoid cancellation due to low registration. In the case of a cancellation you will be notified prior and receive a full refund. Please read our class policies.
