Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught mixed media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

In my new class, Whimsical Faces: Drawing Basics, I will teach you the basics of how I draw whimsical faces. I love keeping it loose and abstract, yet having a touch of realism in my art.  I want to share that process with you, and the skills you need to create your own whimsical faces.

In this beginner drawing class:

  1. We will walk through the supplies, resources I’ve been using to learn to draw faces, and I will do a short journal flip to share a bit of my journey of drawing faces.  
  2. We will learn very simple proportions for faces.  
  3. For the project demonstration, I will take you step-by-step through a monochromatic drawing, sharing my process and tips along the way.  I have created bite-sized sections for this drawing so that you can draw with me!  Simply pause the class, draw, then continue watching.
  4. Last, but not least, it’s project time!  - this is my favorite part!!  I want to see your process and your practice :)   

As always, let go and enjoy the process!  Don’t be afraid of making mistakes!   Everyone makes mistakes, it is part of the learning process.  The key to improving is to keep going - accept your “mistakes” and move on!  Keep practicing.  You can do this!!
