In this workshop we will concentrate on creating faces on paper. Drawing a portrait can be a little intimidating … “I can’t draw” … but listen here: there are a lot of ways to create a portrait without having any experience (including a good similar-looking portrait of a real person if you want to.) I will not teach you how to paint a ‘doll-girl-with-big-eyes,’ instead, we go looking for ‘faces showing character.’ Collage-heads, faces in blobs and spots, blind drawn portraits and more! You will learn know various methods, materials and techniques that each have their own look and bring a special style to the faces on paper.
