Course Description

"I was always afraid of painting faces"... does this sound familiar?

Have you struggled with structure, size or shading a face? Or maybe you haven't even attempted a face because is just seems too complicated or scary.

I feel your pain! You should see the faces I've done... yikes!

But after years of practice, I came up with a sure-fire way to get a great face every time! 

And I want to share that with you to save you all the trouble and frustration I went through.

Let me tell you a little more about the workshop and what you can expect.

I believe in practice because when we practice, we can approach the actual project with confidence. And you'll be familiar with what we're doing so you'll be able to put your project together seamlessly.

~I go over the supplies and walk you through some practice of the items that might not be familiar to you.... but are so important to this workshop

~We practice my techniques to getting great faces every time.

~We practice getting the details right on the eyes, nose, lips and chin

~We practice our backgrounds

~We'll talk about collage, the items you choose and the story you're telling.

~We'll play with Stabilo pencils, soft pastels, charcoal, acrylics, and stenciling

~We'll create 3 projects with three different backgrounds techniques and three different styles of faces.

~Full HD videos with real-time, step by step instruction.

Are you ready to let go of your fear around creating faces?

Then let's do this together!

Artist/Creative Soul

Shawn Petite

Well Hello There! My name is Shawn Petite and I’m a mixed media artist, living my dream of creating every day. I've been teaching and creating for over 26 years in many different mediums but found my art soul mate in mixed media.  I’ve been published in several magazines, I produce my own line of stencils, and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media. But most importantly, I try every day to encourage and inspire. To show love with my paintbrush. To leave my little corner of the world a better place. One of my greatest joys is to know that I've encouraged YOU on your creative journey My favorite quote: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
