About This Class

In this class we will create a spread that is full of heart and soul.  Using simple and loose sketching and painting techniques to put a part of ourselves into our art.  I'll show you how to use scribbly pencil lines, watersoluble media, and add torn collage and ephemera papers to your work. 

Faces can be intimidating to draw at first, but I'll show you such a simple technique that your face will come alive before you in just moments.
