    I’d like to learn more figurative and mixed media.

    • Connie36 on September 14, 2020 at 10:32 AM

      I hope to learn to be more expressive in my portrait paintings. Thank you for the opportunity to join in!

      I’d like to learn how to understand proportions better. I want to develop my style, and better my skill level.

  2. Leslie on September 14, 2020 at 8:13 AM

    I’m so excited for Let’s Face It 2021! I just discovered a love of painting faces this year, and recently have been wanting to learn how to paint body proportions. Looking forward to the classes!!

  3. Yvonne Zaborac on September 14, 2020 at 8:16 AM

    I’m into practicing drawing more complicated figures right now.

  4. Ruth Paul on September 14, 2020 at 8:28 AM

    I would like to get more comfortable with the shadows

  5. Staci Willis on September 14, 2020 at 8:32 AM

    I just love to watch people paint, I learn so much. I’ve taken several courses and I have learned something from them all…portraits are my favorites, so I would say more portrait classes, definitely would love another from Michael Carson!

  6. Melissa Elliott on September 14, 2020 at 8:34 AM

    Portraiture is fairly new to me, so learning how to include more than just the face will be a big step. So I guess figure and anatomy is what I will anticipate adding to my repertoire.

  7. Wendy Robards on September 14, 2020 at 8:54 AM

    Shared on FB! I already receive your newsletter. I want to learn more about figure drawing next year!

  8. Joan Wagner on September 14, 2020 at 8:58 AM

    LFI 2021 lineup looks fabulous! I am thrilled to be part of this group. Never had done a portrait until LFI2018 and now I have walls lined with them! I am 80 years young, never too old to learn.

    Thanks Kara

  9. Debra Sarran on September 14, 2020 at 9:12 AM

    I hope to learn how to capture expressions, especially in the eyes.

    • Analia on September 15, 2020 at 6:18 AM

      I’d love to learn techniques, expressions, composition, from these amazin teachers!

    I am in love with the more abstract and whimsical portraits right now. Looking forward to the great lineup of teachers!

  11. Nardja Segui on September 14, 2020 at 9:29 AM

  12. Jane Armstrong on September 14, 2020 at 9:40 AM

    I am always looking to learn more techniques for painting expressive portraits. I also want to learn more about painting with acrylics, and to paint loosely with minimum strokes.

    • Kathie Maruska on September 14, 2020 at 8:25 PM

      I’m looking to buikd.more confidence in my art work and not be afraid to experiment and enjoy the process

  13. Debbie Riddle on September 14, 2020 at 9:58 AM

    Anything I can learn would be great…. I want to especially learn more figurative but I need a lot with faces also. Thanks for the opportunity to win! This would help so much since this will be the first time I don’t really have the funds due to health issues. Hugs and love no matter what…

  14. Lindsay Vanhove on September 14, 2020 at 10:19 AM

    I want to learn it all. At the moment I am thinking about the planes of the face, creative colour use, and loosening up.

  16. linda appleby on September 14, 2020 at 10:33 AM

    Thanks Kara! This is my first year, 2020 and it has been beyond inspirational. In addition to growing artistically, art has been my solace in this crazy world. I want my passion to continue as a find my own creativity voice.

  17. debra Daily on September 14, 2020 at 10:35 AM

    I’m hoping to learn in these classes how to be more me… genuine..

  18. EB Hawks on September 14, 2020 at 10:46 AM

    Looking forward to my 4th year with you! Love all the lessons, always something new to learn and the teachers are always so inspiring! I would like to learn more about creating a narrative be it with a portrait or figurative work.

  21. Renee Stien on September 14, 2020 at 11:03 AM

    This sounds like a fun course. I would like to learn more about both painting a more realistic face and also how to paint a looser feeling whimsical face.

  22. Katrina May on September 14, 2020 at 11:18 AM

    I would like to improve my figurative and portrait skills, and explore the merits of different media.

  23. Carmen Ll de Lopez on September 14, 2020 at 11:43 AM

    Kara , let me thank you again for my lfi2020 scholarship ! I have learned so much !

    I want to keep improving to be able to sell my paintings , so I can afford more courses and buy supplies ( you know my funds are restricted due to my health expenses)
    Big hug 🤗

  24. Penny A Gunderson on September 14, 2020 at 11:59 AM

    I’d like to learn to paint looser. Also how to do a portrait or figure without fully completing it. leaving white space and soft edges,

  25. jdavis2241 on September 14, 2020 at 12:05 PM

  26. Marianne Gerrard on September 14, 2020 at 12:14 PM

    I would love to continue learning from your courses! I shared on FB…fingers crossed!! Thanks for the chance to win Kara!

  27. Marie Helyar on September 14, 2020 at 12:16 PM

    I’m a digital artist but I’m very keen to understand how to work with faces and portraits. I only started painting 12 months ago so very keen to learn. So this course I’m sure will be great.

  28. Cindi Johnson on September 14, 2020 at 1:34 PM

    I have grown so much as an artist in LFI 2020! I would love to learn to incorporate settings or backgrounds into my portraits and figure studies.

  29. Jennifer Sawyer on September 14, 2020 at 1:46 PM

    Thanks Kara. I would like to be able to draw a better likeness and get my proportions right. I am looking forward to next year’s classes.

  30. Debra Martinich on September 14, 2020 at 2:41 PM

    I’ve been learning to paint digitally, and am looking forward to translating those skills to the physical canvas

  31. Aprill Allen on September 14, 2020 at 3:08 PM

    This is exciting! I’ve been focused on portraits this year, already, and having just done Sarah Sedgwick’s Zorn class and Michael Carson’s workshop, it’s been like boot camp. I’d love to keep building on that and am interested in mixed media, in capturing expression, and getting what’s happening inside the head onto the face.

  32. tracyleroy1 on September 14, 2020 at 3:13 PM

    Thanks for running Let’s Face It again next year, Kara! What an awesome list of teachers! Shared on FB, and I would like to learn how to colour faces using different mediums – I’m very much a beginner, and am scared to ‘ruin’ my precious drawings by painting them! Lol.

    • Sharon on September 14, 2020 at 4:46 PM

      To learn portraits in a group with others would be my main reason to join. I do a lot of my art alone and unsupported and there is something about being in a group with others where there is support, sharing, mutual enjoyment where you are learning together and I’ve not often had that. Thank you for the chance to win a free spot. It’s very kind and I hope you enjoy not only teaching but choosing someone to give a place too. Portraits are my favourite. I’m deaf so face to face is even more important to me. Closeness and emotion and communication through expressive art are ways I feel more connection in this world.

  33. Robbie dezwart on September 14, 2020 at 4:12 PM

    So excited for this bring on 2021 what a dream way to forget 2020 thanks for the opportunity

  34. Kath Young on September 14, 2020 at 4:12 PM

    Every one of your artists and my fellow classmates inspire me to look at my paintings in a different way and teach me different tips and techniques to take my art in directions I would never have gone by myself. I am looking forward to learning more about everything in 2021 and I want to keep on lapping up inspiration and information and watching it shine through in my portraits.

  35. Ann on September 14, 2020 at 4:38 PM

    I am brand new to all things drawing and painting. Loved Deb Weiers classes, and I am hungry for more! Love learning new things!

  36. Cindy Harris on September 14, 2020 at 4:46 PM

    I’m interested in your Let’s Face It 2021 (some of your headings say 2020…?).
    Thanks for getting together such a diversified team of instructors!
    Where do I pay?

  37. Czerina on September 14, 2020 at 6:05 PM

    Would love to learn more about portraits and figures and capture their essence thru form, light, hues, value. Also learn more about techniques! Learn everything about painting!!! 😀

  38. John Bloner on September 14, 2020 at 6:49 PM

    Seeking inspiration and instruction on how to draw and paint in a variety of styles.

  42. Zelda Lambrecht on September 14, 2020 at 10:41 PM
