Lessons involving mythical creatures and fantastical fun!
Welcome to the Faerie Realm!
I have so long enjoyed drawing and painting mythical creatures and, as you very well may know, I enjoy drawing and painting female faces the most! Fairies (or faeries) are the ultimate and easiest way to combine my two loves. But I know what you're thinking, you're thinking this class is just going to be all the other popular face drawing classes out there today where we just paint different variations of the female face (but with cool ears), la de da de da. But that's where you couldn't be more WRONG!!!
Now don't be sad, we most certainly WILL be drawing and painting our sweet and magical fairy sisters (and I have brought in 3 Internationally recognized guest teachers just to broaden your ability scope and exposure to diverse ways of working out this dear subject that we love so much!). BUT WE WILL BE DOING OOOOOOOOOOH SO MUCH MORE!
With this course I wanted to go WAAAAY beyond the scope of a typical ho-hum art course and really dive INTO that magical place where fairies go to live! That's why in THIS course we will be learning how to draw and render a fairy HOUSE.
And then we will go ever FURTHER as I show you how to make one out of upcycled books!!!
Here's another view, as it currently sits in my house!
My husband loves it so much that he's letting me keep in on the BAR! Cuz ya know, fairies and liquor...
We will also be creating our very special 3-Dimensional Fairy HEAD complete with glitter and flowers and those mysteriously pointed ears!
AND I will be teaching you my secret technique of making phenomenal and high-quality mini prints of your fairy work (and all your work) so that we can make sparkly, jewel-filled fairy necklaces!!!
And remember those 3 guest teachers I mentioned early? Well they certanily will be teaching you 3 different ways to draw and watercolor spectacular fairy faces in their own distinct styles in addition to my own lesson (which, I'll have you know makes 4!).
This is Claudia Finelle's (to die for, right?!)
And Jenny Manno's
And from Lucy Brydon...
And finally, my mixed media project!
Don't even get me started on the the bonus lesson...it's all just too much!
So as you can see, this is no ordinary art course. THIS course, is more like a Fairy Tale in and of itself, complete with a magical happy ending :)
Can't wait to see you in class!
