YOU GUYS!!!!! I am sooooo excited to share with you all the team for LETS FACE IT 2021!!!! We will have some returning featured guest teachers, and some brand new ones that have never been a part of the class before! We will be working on a whole year of inspiration, and a wide variety of angles and poses in our portrait and figurative artwork! It is going to be another incredible year and I hope you all will join us!

First, let me share with you all the amazing artists that will be joining me!



  • The ORIGINAL AND ONLY year-long course that is devoted solely to studying portraits and figures. 
  • 27 professional artists sharing their knowledge and expertise on portraiture and figurative art
  • Geared toward all levels - beginning, intermediate and advance artists
  • Areas of study include but not limited to:
    • Understanding proportions
    • Various portrait angles and poses
    • Composition
    • Color theory and value
    • Finding a likeness in your work
    • Loosening up in both your dry and wet mediums
    • Using reference photos for inspiration and not necessarily to find likeness
    • Style development
    • so much more!!

Portrait and figurative artwork can be quite daunting, but the Let's Face It community is one of the most supportive communities I have ever been a part of!  Since 2016 more than 7500 people have joined LFI 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, 2020!  Together, instructors and students, have created a community of encouraging artists that want to work together to overcome the fears and self-doubt that come with creating portrait and figurative art.  There is always room for more and we hope you will join us!

In 2021 we will focus on a variety of WAYS TO BE INSPIRED, and continue with various portrait angles and figurative poses!

Registration will officially open on October 12th!  The first 500 people will get the earliest bird rate of $99.  After that, the early bird price will be $119 through the end of November.  You will also have the option to bundle up and purchase multiple LFI courses for a bargain!  This year, you also have a chance to win one of 35 free memberships!  We are giving away 30 FREE memberships, plus 5 scholarships!  So you might get lucky and get the course for free!

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

  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!

  10. Angela Zacharek on September 14, 2020 at 9:25 AM

    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

    Thank you for the opportunity, I would love to lear more positions for the face. ❤️

  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.

  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

    Thank you for this opportunity Kara! I would love to learn more about storytelling with portraits. Oh and realism. Actually, I want to learn it all #studentforever haha!!


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

    To learn more about all of it!!!

  16. 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.

  17. Renee Zarate on September 14, 2020 at 7:07 PM

    I would love to learn how to do more realistic faces but then I love Deb Weires style too! Just want to learn!!

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

    I am HOOKED! Deb Weiers current class has changed my life and I have taken her advice to take as many classes as I can just as she did. I also love Christa Forrest and am thrilled she is in the line-up as well. Enjoying your weekly videos too Kara!

  19. Bev Walker on September 15, 2020 at 6:16 AM

    I want to learn how to take the techniques and make them my own in order to develop my own “signature” style!

  20. Libbi Corson on September 15, 2020 at 5:32 PM

    I want to be surprised by the new content! LOVE these classes!

  21. Tanja Sandmann on September 17, 2020 at 5:27 AM

    Would love to learn more emotional expression, and how to stay loose. Thanks for the chance to win a spot!

  22. Ronda Conley on September 17, 2020 at 2:05 PM
