As always, thank you for all of your support and enthusiasm! None of this would ever be possible without all of you in our community! For that I am forever grateful! I look forward to reading your comments below on what you want to learn next year!
I would love to continue developing portraits and figuratives in different styles. Another exciting year with and exciting line up.
Also shared with my friends and family.
I’ve absolutely loved the variety of styles and lessons in LFI 2022. It’s been such a blessing. I’d love to learn about pet portraits if that’s a possibility 😊
I just want to keep learning as many new techniques as possible. Also hope I will finally achieve the looseness I keep striving for. Looking forward to 2023!
I would like to learn how to develop expressive portraits in different styles. Really bring in emotion in my paintings ❤️
Oh this looks so promising. I hope I can join again, next year.
I want to learn how to draw/paint portraits & figures within short increments of time or in a way that affords me the option to put a WIP down when I need to and then easily go back to working on it from where I left off. For example, often I’m only able to set aside small amounts of time. However for me, it takes a lot of focus & effort to work on them, and so when I put down a WIP I find it to be a huge struggle to return to the portrait and continue where I left off. I don’t know how to get into the same mindset or return to it, so I just give up on it. I enjoy learning about how to do portraits, but I get very discouraged with them since I don’t know how to break down the process (of doing portraits) in a manner that I may stop and easily return to them in a flexible & cohesive manner.
I love love love e drawing people. I would like to be able to make amazing portraits that communicate positive energy. 😁
I would like to learn techniques to apply in portraits, it’s a challenge … I just want to improve my skills . Amazing teachers in this course!
I’m excited to expand my creative process and to learn techniques that allow for better results. I love all the different processes and how diverse the artists are. I have always struggled with portraits and trying to get it right. What if it’s not about getting it right, but just getting it on the paper, canvas, or whatever medium is available?
I know I can always learn from such amazing artists. I have posted PYHS23 on my FB.
I’m esuinterested in watercolour portraits. I feel watercolours bring out true facial expressions!
I like to learn new techniques, unusual uses for my supplies and things I have not thought of before. Can’t wait!
So excited by the instructor lineup for 2023! I just want to continue the journey to becoming my true Self with artistic freedom!
I love the variety but I am especially looking forward to any demonstration using waqtercolor.
I’ve used art as a therapy to get through severe mental health and chronic illness. Now I’m working hard to turn it into a career. By taking more lessons I will gain more technical skills and be able to apply these to my portraits. I’d live to learn how to do layers such as used by Ce Duff and Sabra Awlas Issa.
Thank for the opportunity you’re offering.
I would like to learn to overcome my “perfectionism” and be more free and forgiving with my art.
I can’t wait to learn from some of my favorite teachers & exciting new ones! Looking forward to learning new skills & techniques.
I would like to gain confidence, and love learning to use different mediums.
I would really like to develop my style!
It sure would be wonderful to win a spot. I would NOT miss LFI!!! Just love working on portraits!!!! I have learned so much over the years!
I am already getting the newsletter, of course, but I will put the ad on FB. thanks for the chance!!
I honestly love being surprised every week with a new technique and lesson! I love drawing with graphite but I also love painting in acrylics and oils (watercolors still hate me 😂) But for me, the attraction and continued excitement about a new lesson every week is the diversity and newness each week. As much as I love graphite, I would be bored and uninspired if each lesson used the same medium. I really can’t wait for Mondays to roll around now! ❤️
I would love to develop my portrait skills. The program looks amazing!
Portraits have always been a struggle for me. I would love to practise and hone my skills in this area from the amazing line up of artists gathered here. Trouble is I want to try and do it all and also struggle financially to pay for my growing interests.
I would like to learn more about shading on the face and figure. Such excite ❤️
Hi Kara! Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! I would love to learn more techniques to further develop myself. I’ve shared your post on my Facebook page!
I hope to continue to carve out more time to explore the various offerings of Kara Bullock Art School. There truly are a wide variety of instructional and supports !
I am scared of painting anything related to humans- face ,body. So ,looking forward to this course.
2023 will be the 7th year of LFI for me. The continuation of lessons and expanding my techniques is always my goal. I seem to pick up a usable technique with every lesson. Cannot wait for another year to begin.
I would like to learn more intuitive approaches. Thanks!
I would like to learn more about how to loosen up my style and draw more simply. I try too hard and it shows up as fussy and overdone.
(I do not have Facebook)
I love exploring the veritable smorgasbord of styles and artistic approaches in LFI and the 2023 line up looks too damn good to miss!
This is so exciting! I’ve shared with everyone I know. I cannot wait to learn more about portraiture and figurative painting in Let’s Face It 2023 😊
Looking forward to continuing to develop my style while learning from these incredible artists. There’s always a great nugget of wisdom- well, many nuggets-even if the artist has a diff ent style or works in a different medium than I do.
I’m looking forward to learn how to paint portraits of people of all ages
I struggle with young children and older men to draw accurately. I’ve posted this notice on my facebook page
I would love to be more loose and expressive with my portraits. And still trying to find my own style.
I would like to learn more about painting portraits in oils .
I would love to learn new techniques and practise more and more, hope to develope my own style some day. Offcourse I shared the post on my fb and I already receive your newsletter
Id love to learn from Robert Kelly!
Off to share!
I would love to learn some new techniques. I have never taken any of your classes so I am also excited about the possibility of learning from you 🙂
I love the diversity you have here with the artists you choose and their unique talents they share with us. I love art so I am open to just about learning anything.
I would like to see more face details, watercolor pencils and crayons. I am trying to improve my faces on art dolls.
I would love to win a place at lets face it because I cannot afford it.
It’s so exciting, such an exquisite line up for 2023! I would like getting loose, do art more intuitively and be inspired by great artists as they can be found in each and every of your courses, Kara! You are really doing great choosing always the best! 💕
Such an awesome course and on my wish list every year. I love portraits and figurative work and would love to learn and learn and learn as much as I can to develop my own style.
I would love to continued my artistic development especially portrait development. Thank you for this opportunity 🙂
I would like to continue improving my portrait skills. I would like to learn more expressive portraiture. Abstraction is always hard for me.
Looking forward to another great group to learn and grow with.
I would. Like to Improve Skills in Portraits and Figuratives. I Love the variation you offer in this course. Shared With friends
I look forward to learning from so many different talented artists. I love their generosity and am excited to expand my art knowledge and skills.
I would love to continue learning different techniques and digital art
I would love to explore different mediums and techniques
I would like to learn how to be expressive in my portrait work and have a likeness as well.
I would like to learn new ways to do portraits and figures ❤
I learned so much over the past few years taking these classes! I’m looking forward to continuing my portrait making journey. Thanks for all you do to engage such wonderful instructors.
Wonderful! It’s really hard to choose as I learn something from everyone I create With. Faces and watercolor if I absolutely have to pin it down! Wait also multi-media. Yeah that’s it. Shading. For real that’s it. So grateful for the opportunity. <3
I would love to continue to build my knowledge base about portraiture. Learning from many artists helps to teach many different styles as well as techniques and materials. It is so much fun to learn new techniques. I am also interested in doing some portraits that have interesting lighting. Thanks!
I’m really looking forward to embarking on a portrait painting adventure with you and all the tutors. I currently paint flowers and birds, sometimes dragonflies and butterflies but my attempts at portraits have been disappointing. I can’t wait for the course to start.
Hello I love collage and would like to work on color. It’s always difficult to have a beautifull Harmony. Thank you very much.
I want to broaden my own unique style & creativity even further by learning from all the great artists I see you’ve gathered together for next year. I’m SO excited for a couple of new artists who haven’t participated before (as well as some familiar favorites!)
It would be great to do different ways to catch the likeness of the painted/drawn person. I also always curious about different (mixed) techniques away from the mainstream and I like to loose up my lines….
I am looking foreword to LFI 2023!
I would like to see more done with graphite.. What am I saying…I love it all!
Having been out of action with my regular art practice due to so many unbelievably difficult trials and challenges in my life over the last couple of years , being in class again would help me along to be back in regular arting in an encouraging and active art community that is so inspirational and constructive in so many ways .
I can always improve my portraits and learn new techniques.
Shared on Facebook 🤞
I am always ravenous for new and magical energies to bring forth into my artwork. It is wonderful to share in others visions that inspire while in our beautiful alone worlds of our studios.
What an opportunity 😃 would love to be part of this group and learn and draw and paint more and more. Thank You for all the lessons of this last year
I love learning about different styles and mediums in developing portraiture. Looking forward to a new year,

Paint more realistic portraits, learn new techniques. Thank you.

Thank you for a great course!
Shared on my timeline
I’d love to learn more about incorporating abstract styles into portraits. Thanks for the chance to win a spot – this year’s group of teachers and classes looks amazing!
Everything about portraits!
After many, many years as an artist, I have been exploring faces and I became hooked! What took me so long?? I have been taking a deep dive into this and want to continue. My passion for painting has been renewed and I feel that I have finally found my voice! I have never done Let’s Face It, it seems scary to think it goes on for a whole year, but I am fascinated!
I have discovered my passion for art only since I retired. I am be to portraiture and would love to expand my knowledge and find my style.
I want to continue to my journey to freely develop my art. I’ve been with LFI from the beginning, and it is the best course and value available!
I would like to become proficient at drawing faces from the side.
I’d like to learn new techniques using different supplies and substrates and hopefully become more comfortable and confident in myself and my artistic abilities.
Excited to learn more about pencil and charcoal portrait drawings in particular as well as the mixed media lessons. Good luck everyone!
I would like to continue developing my skills in painting and drawing different angles of the face, and also learning how to ‘leave out’ details, thus making the artwork more interesting. Sharing on FB!!! 🙂
Checked out all the artists listed. How exciting! 2023 should be a great year! I appreciate this service. Portraits and pastels are on my list for needed improvement, but I’m positive there is something to learn from everyone. Thank you!
i would love to learn more about painting eyes. Not specific the realistic technique, but more: how and where the light comes in and how to change the light and the place/angle and size of the pupil to make emotions/expressions stronger.
So to get an understanding of what happens with an eye and eyelid at certain emotions.
I’m new to portraits. Would love to win a spot. Thank you for the. Opportunity to win.
I love learning new techniques, hints and advice., colour palettes, etc. And then putting into practice to improve my own Artwork
I haven’t participated in all the 2022 classes, but have really been enjoying them. Kara, these classes are such a gift! I will be signing up again!
I have only being doing art for the last 9 months, so I have a hunger to learn everything I can. especially portraits with charcoal and pencil.
I would love to learn how to develop my own style based on what I learn from different artists
I am so excited to have KBAS as my go to skill developing resource. As a self taught artist I am hungry to know about the endless techniques as I work to fine-tune my personal style and process. Learning from so many incredible artists is invaluable and for that I am grateful! Thank you to all…so excited to continue this journey!
I would like to learn more about shading and shadows on portraits so they have more life.
I would love to learn more about figure drawing and drawing the face from different angles. These are definitely my weakest skills
Love the variety of painting styles offered in this course
Thank you for the opportunity to win 🙂

I have been with you since your first year-a happy accident! Every year gets better and better, I want to to continue to refine my portraits and also make them more abstract. Right on target with the expert teachers you have this AND next year . BRAVO!
I am looking forward to year 4! I wish to learn… easy as it sounds… more about colour pencil use and blending.. it is the one material i find few lessons on. and its such a portable medium! In portraiture i would also love to learn how to create a more dramatic lighting much like the masters did . thank you Kara, for everything!
I really want to improve on portraits, especially likeness this year. I would like to do a portrait of the kids and grandkids during the year. I have high hopes that I will get off to a good start at developing my own style of portraiture by trying so many different teachers techniques.
I signed up for Lets Face it 2021-2022 and there is no way I’m going to miss out on 2023, this is the best online art course and community ever, looking forward to discovering what 2023 has in-store, very exciting …… bring it on, spread the news !!!
I would love to learn more ways of using different mediums with paint, pastels, charcoal for interesting effects!
To get better in drawing and painting portraits
I love the artists of the Lest face it courses
I have taken Let’s face it before, and I do miss it, it is one of the best classes I have taken.
I am rusty after a long stretch of illness and need a power-booster to get my art flowing again. Besides, I really missed your quality classes this past year!
I’d like to learn more of a painterly approach to portraits.
Thanks for the opportunity to get any class for free. I am new to portraiture with traditional painting and these classes excite me to my bones! I want to learn and improve and this series of classes would sharpen my skills but also fill my soul as I do. Specifically I want to improve my color mixing abilities and working with oils. Thanks for you lovely classes Kara!
I want to continue travelling onward with my artsy portrait and figural studies with fantastic LFI instructors. As a beginner, I was delighted with LFI22, my first art course. I am learning so much in a non-intimidating atmosphere at my own pace. Thank you.
I too would love to continue developing portraits and figuratives. All the different styles give a broad learning curve, and I keep going back to several of the lessons.
Hoping to learn some mixed media techniques with watercolor, acrylics etc and profiles!
During COVID, I discovered I had a passion for drawing. I am amazed by how much I have grown in such a short time! I especially love drawing portraits and in the last couple of years, I have learned so much from you and your wonderful artist community! I am so grateful for all of you. It has given me a new activity/passion/ obsession! Lol. I am looking forward to developing my skills in this next course!! Thank you for all you do!!
This has been such a great learning tool! I’d like more figure lessons as I need mitre practice with entire figure!
I’ve made a lot of progress in the last year thanks to LFI but still struggle with noses and composition overall. I’m good at copying but would love to find my own style.
Would love to learn how to mix colours better
Love to more about portraitpainting and drawing. I love face it 2022.
What do I want to learn? Something new every week. So it was 2022 and it’s been a fantastic first LFI for me and I’m so happy to have discovered this group. Since then I have a new favorite day of the week ,so I will be there again next year for sure. Thank you Kara! Make Mondays great again! 😉
I would love to continue to develop free style, semi abstracted portraits. I’d like to focus on interesting poses and colours.
Yea! This year was my first year with faces 2022, enjoyed the classes I’ve taken. Excited to continue. So great full they are lifetime!
This will be my 6th year as a LFI student. I look forward each year -and indeed each week- to new artistic thoughts, habits, and skills. Delighted that our favorite instructors are returning too. A LOT of bang for your buck!!
I’m so excited the time has come for LFI2023! I’ve been waiting! This is a course I’ve heard many amazing things about and I look forward to diving in for my first time and developing my overall portrait skills.
I look forward to gaining enough portraiture technical skills to begin developing my own style…. and I would love to get better at portraying a stronger likeness of the person.
The main thing I would love to gain by participating in Let’s Face it 2023 is to be more confident in myself and my art. It is also exciting to try new ways of expressing yourself through different types of mediums and techniques.
I would like to further refine and develop my portrait style.
I would like to try and improve my portrait skills (watercolour/acrylic) and I’d particularly like to learn how to paint a mature woman (rather than girls).
I have spent the last year catching up with my community art projects. Creating community murals with residents from senior care homes and local historical societies. I am now looking forward to continuing my own path of creativity and would be delighted to strengthen my figurative painting skills as I have an upcoming solo show in the new year.
I would like to develop my own portrait style and not just copy a photo.
Would love to win a space. It’s been so much fun looking forward to a new class every week!
I would love to try oils, it is always a medium that I have been fearful of. Although now I hear you can get water soluble ones?!
I just started into the painting world and can’t get enough. It’s been the best thing I’ve done in all my sixty years. So much fun!
One idea I have is that I would love for each weekly lesson to have the normal and formal Part A, the actual lesson using the reference photo, and Part B, where we informally APPLY the lesson to our own reference photo and risk posting our results! I feel that applying the lesson might help me learn the technique more deeply before moving on. Of course, I have that posting option today, but formalizing that process might give me more motivation to apply the lesson before I forget it! Just an idea…
I love learning new loose styles of portraiture. Can’t wait to see the lessons!
I would LOVE to be able to win a seat and have the chance to once again join the wonderful LFI community and learn from all the awesome teachers. Unfortunately, since my son (in 2017) and mother (in 2021) passed away, I haven’t had any classes available to me, and I am sure I am really rusty. My heart just wasn’t in it. I was left completely alone (I am an only child, as was my mum and also my son) and in a mess, both mentally and financially (mum supported us with her 2 pensions and I was her carer). After almost 5 years I know I am more than ready to get back into my passion – painting portraits, something to bring back some joy to my life, and art was always such a help to me when I was feeling down.
Thank you so much for this opportunity to win a seat.
I would like to learn how to draw a side profile without ageing the person I am drawing significantly! I would also like to develop my own style further and learn different techniques.
I found Kara Bullock Art at a time when I needed healing and solitude. I stopped drawing at the age of 12- I am 51 now. I picked up a pencil for the first time since I was 12! Thanks to this community, I have been able to foster my creative side again and work on an abundance of healing. I am looking forward to continued education, creativity and techniques. I am pretty excited!!!
I want to continue on learning and improving in figurative and portraits. I still have so far to go and absolutely LOVE LFI!! It is my bread and butter, so to speak! Thank you for another year’s opportunity to grow!
I would love to continue to improve on scale and expressiveness. 🙏🏼 thank you
I’m open to anything really, guess I’ll looking forward to exposure of new artists techniques etc. I love just watching without expectation and then seeing it pop up somewhere.
HI I would like to learn art for healing and therapy , thank you.
I would like to develop my portrait drawing skills further- including but not limited to learning different ways to approach various angles and tilts of the head. I also would like to see a more detailed lesson or 2 on hands as they are very challenging.
LFI is the best collaborative course that I have found! Thank you, Kara, for organizing, teaching, and bringing all the ‘extras’ in. I appreciate that you continue to bring back the best instructors only. I would like to see no more music in the videos- aside from entrance music. The voices are softer than the music, so you have to constantly turn the volume up and down. Thanks for the opportunity to win the 2023 course. I am on the waitlist, so I will absolutely purchase it if I don’t win!
I would love to learn abstract portraits..
I would love any help making portraits more realistic looking and I always enjoy learning new mediums.
I just love the variety of styles the artists bring to Lets Face It.
Hi. I’m really drawn to portraits but have a really hard time doing them, especially a true likeness I’d love the chance to learn from all the amazing artists and all their interesting and unique styles. It would be such a treat.
I love to learn more about portrais. It would be so nice to win a place.
I’m so excited that LFI 2023 is here again! It’s such a great course with such a diversified artists and would love to win a place here.
I’m keen to learn and improve different techniques or portraits in order to gain more confidence… especially expressive figurative paintings, expressive faces and portraits of animals. Would be grateful for such an opportunity to win a place!!
I was hesitating to sign ip for Let’s Face It this year because I was going yo concentrate on stand alone classes. BUT….you have such a great line up of teachers I cannot resist. I would like to paint more in oils this year….I’m in the middle of Mara Light’s class and learning so much from her. Thanks for all your efforts to provide us with great instructors!
I am so glad you signed up and the good news is we will have a few really great oil lessons for you! You will not be sorry!
I think I would love to be part of a “live” community again. I think I work better with challenges! The line up of teachers looks totally awesome and would love to win a spot on Lets Face It 2023 to continue learning more about portraits. 🙂
I’m so rusty. I’d love to get back at it and learn to incorporate more mixed media into my painting. I’d love to develop my work beyond the basic aspects of portraiture.💗
I would love to be more committed to trying the lessons. There is so much to learn and I must take action rather than just watch the lessons. ❤️
What a great lineup! I am always interested in new approaches nd new tidbits that improve my paintings. Every year I think it can’t get better but it does!!!
I would love to learn in let’s face it 2023. I’ve had an exhausting year, finding out that I have cancer, treatment, not being able to work while having treatment. Just getting back to a somewhat normal life again and art. 🎨 thank you for the chance
Love love love this line-up! 😍 I‘m always amazed by the awesome artists that you get to teach on this beautiful network! Thank you! I‘m especially looking forward to learning more about oils!
I would love to learn how to develop my own line drawings of faces that are abstracted/ expressive and can be incorporated into floral paintings.
I love portraits, and like to learn new techniques.
I like using charcoals for so many reasons but am becoming allergic to the medium. Would love to know what products are less irritating.
I would love to learn more about expressive and unconventional styles of painting portraits. Also more abstracted work.
So far I have learned a lot from all your courses.
I would love to learn extensive mixed media applied to portraits and animals
For a long time I held the belief that I couldn’t draw and earlier this year I was able to overcome that. I would love to be able to expand my ability so it becomes second nature.
I would love to learn more technics of making backgrounds and how to use the materials and paint in different ways. I love how everyone has their own unique way of making a painting. It is like your own signature. Sometimes when i dont have time i just watch the lessons and it takes me right into the studio with the artist. It brings me so much joy and peace of mind on busy days.
I would like to continue to learn about composition and patience.
Many of my favorite teachers are in this lineup! I’m sure there will be plenty to learn from them about portraits and figurative drawing and painting.
I love painting and sketching portraits!! I would like to learn the best way to loosen up. I start out that way and then lose that flow.
Looks like 2023 will be a fabulous journey! I would love to win. Thank you for the opportunity.
I would love to keep learning new tips, tricks and techniques! Each artist has a different way of doing things and I love to pick up all those little ideas and insider knowledge. I’m looking forward to another year of exciting teachers!
Wow what an opportunity for me to learn more about creating faces with such an amazing line up of teachers. I would like to learn and improve on my shadowing, shaping a face and experience different mediums to create them. Thanks for this chance Kara. It would mean so much to win!!!
I love to learn from other artists
I would love how to create different expressions and moods in my paintings. What a great opportunity to learn from these artist.
I‘d love to learn more about portraits and to develope my own style.
LFI is absolutely something that I look forward to each year. The teachers are amazing artist and generously share their talent with us. I could not recommend LFI more! Enjoy! It is a great community!
I would love to further my knowledge of portraits and full body as one can never quit learning or learn enough!
Hi Kara! Awesome to offer all the goodies in addition to your year long art courses! I used to be more of a perfectionist, however over the years, with your informative educational advice, I now paint because I want to and because I can and because I enjoy the process of creating and producing something recognizable. I enjoy your posts and courses which enable me to become a better artist everyday. Thank you kindly.
Graphite is my current interest so developing that would be great.
So many great teachers would like to expand and learn more about portrait drawing painting. I love learning new techniques and using all types of medium. Have a lot of supplies that have not learned to use yet and look forward to learning how to use them.
So many great teachers would like to expand and learn more about portrait drawing painting. I love learning new techniques and using all types of medium.
I want to absorb all the art information I can. I lost sight in one eye as . I fear losing sight in my good eye as I age. I want to learn as much as I can so I can create as much as I can before I lose my sight. I want my kids to have something I created to be remembered for something great.
I would love to learn new techniques from other artists.
I am so looking to add more tools in my toolbox to expand my creativity both drawing and painting portraits! Let’s do this!
so much! Especially getting exposure to a variety of teaching! Just increasing my skills in general. Thank you!
I have joined for years and always learn so much, even when iy is way too advanced for me. The teachers this year are incredible and I would like some continued basic drawing skills, understanding composition and perspective, as well as any and all else
I’d like to learn how to mix up skin tones and how to paint a portrait. Thank you, Kara, for this opportunity to participate.
Yes! LFI 2023! Would love to learn better eyes, noses, ears. From flat to more 3D portraits. So happy with Kara and the community. Off to share now.
Awesome line up, so much to learn. Would love to to be more loose, so learning to be more loose would bring out more creative.
I would like to work on abstract portraits and figurative forms.
I would like to further develop my portrait skills as well as try new styles. What a great list of artists for 2023! I shared on Pinterest under my Art board (way more followers there than my fb) and I shared in a private artist group I am in on Instagram
Thanks for the opportunity 🙂
Excited for another year! I would like to learn a little more realism, just for the experience.
I want to learn more techniques for drawing faces. I have loved the classes I have taken so far.
I’ve lost my mojo and I need some inspiration to find it again. My manual dexterity has worsened and arting has been a real struggle. It’s been super frustrating and saddening and I need to figure out some new strategies and coping mechanisms so I can continue to create.
I am fascinated with the process of drawing and painting portraits. I try to take every opportunity to improve my realism – as much as I love to add a fantasy element to my portraits, my real goal is to create very realistic portraits. That is my goal over the next year. Better features, better shadows and light.
letsfaceit2023 would be an amazing adventure for me….. I liken it to the road less travelled…… ie have the will to do it but not had the opportunity. I have counselled many over the years and learnt to read faces, now in my senior moments I can reflect the stories of people through their facial expressions……a picture tells a thousand words. So please pick me so I can travel further on my own journey through art. thankyou……. The artist lineup looks amazing and I will share on FB with others.
This year was my first with Lets Face it. My mission is more faces, portraits, humans in general. I would also love to learn more about compositions including backgrounds and particularly florals with portraits.
Thank you for the opportunity. I am on my early days in my art journey and enjoy doing portraits a lot. I hope I will have the chance to join LFI 2023. I d like to learn more on connecting with my subject and choosing colors that work for the paintings. Thank you and take care
I loved the variety of portrait painting classes given by amazing artists in LFI2022 and would love to participate in Let’s Face it 2023. My goal is to be more confident in myself and my art. It is satisfying finding new ways of expressing yourself through different types of mediums and techniques.
Hi, I would love to learn new mediums perhaps and I’d really like to get better at the 3/4 view and also I’d love to learn more about values and contrast. I’ve been afraid of these for some reason and I’m ready to make the plunge. 🙂
There is so much to learn and enjoy from the various artists and the lineup for next year looks awesome. I’m still looking to achieve more looseness in my work. Thank you for the opportunity to win a seat in LFI 2023.
So many talented Artists in this coming year’s line-up! Thank you for the chance, Kara. You always have such an amazing group of Artists in your courses.
I can’t get enough of learning different ways of drawing faces. I look forward to a new year with wonderful new courses. Thank you for everything!
I am in since the start 2016 and have already learned so much techniques and did get so much inspiration in those 6 years. I will be there again in 2023, this is my favorite course. I started everything on my mixed media journey and still I have so much pleasure in the weekly workshops. so what I hope to find in the 2023 course is inspiration, joy, sharing and some new techniques. I have shared on my Facebook page.
Would like to learn how to sketch a face in a quick manner so I can do it anywhere.
Never dared taking this course before but now I think the time has come! So excited to learn from the best and expand my horizons!
Would love to learn more about plein air painting
I never want to stop learning new techniques and ways to paint. And yes, I still want to loosen up my work. Let’s Face It completely changed my life !
This looks like the best ever line-up – I didn’t know that was even possible. I would love to learn more techniques and fit them into my toolbox, and hope to become a more confident painter. This is probably more to do with working regularly, allowing and embracing mistakes and doing it anyway. So if teachers could share about ‘how they keep going regardless…’ that would be highly appreciated!
Where did my message go? Posted yesterday quite early just after Sabrina but its not showing now.
I would like to develop a loose watercolour skill and also layering.
Just love this course each year.
I would dearly love at least one lesson is in babies/children facial proportions. I have four grands under 4 1/2 and I have not yet been able to capture a likeness of any of them. I look forward to another great year of learning from all of these artists.
I’d like to learn how to watercolor a beautiful face and how to find my own artistic style.
I’d love to win a spot in this class to discover new techniques 🌺🌺🌺
I want to develop my portrait skills. I just love to make portraits.
I would love to find my mojo in painting back, and any inspiration and instruction regarding portraits and figures will be welcome! But TanjaI would especially love to learn to paint in unconventional colours.
I’m loving LFI2022, but am already so excited about LFI2023. I started I 2021 and have learned SOOO much.
I just want to continue learning and growing. I love being introduced to new styles, media, and TEACHERS, and am particularly interested in learning about composition.
So excited. Woohoo!
I want to grow my skills & learn new techniques!
I would love to learn to paint more emotion filled portraits in a loose, abstracted style.
I want develop new skills and really loosen up in the art process.
I would love some loose watercolor lessons in 2023.
I would love to learn how to create more dynamic paintings because my images fail to be multi-dimensional. I also want to learn how to create dynamic color palettes to feature in my work.
I would love to learn what my own style is and favorite mediums are through exploring the art, and techniques of the amazing figurative artists.
I want to understand portraiture and learn new skills, also hands is something I need to work on. Thank you💗
I’m at a point where I need to be challenged with new ways of doing things. I also like to revisit old favourites. I’m ready. Bring it on. Another great year of learning ahead.
I have many interests in art and what I could l learn. You’ll never too old to learn and I’m still learning – things I haven’t even thought of when working with a certain medium. I’ve really enjoyed LFI 2022 and would enjoy LFI 2023. I started working on watercolor just a couple of years ago but recently work on portraits in acrylics. More acrylics (or acrylic with mix media) would be great.
I like the variety of styles and techniques each artist brings to the classes. I would like to learn and see more portraits with unique expressions, multiple people in a portrait as well! Also maybe a drawing or painting with a pet and a child In it!
Thanks for this great lineup! I would love to explore pen and ink with watercolor.
I want to continue on my journey to improve my portrait and figure skills. I have enjoyed the past year but it’s only the beginning and can’t wait for the new lessons coming next year.
I am perfectly happy to learn anything and everything! Every artist brings some new ideas and techniques and I’m open to them all. That said, I am pretty partial to digital art these days (especially procreate) so I’d love more of that.
Any techniques, colour advice especially with children in mind. Looking forward to a new year.
I want to continue to learn and grow to be able to really express the beauty of the human face and form.
Oh so looking forward to this year. I am in hopes that my mojo will get new
I’ve with these classes. Looking to enjoy every lesson. Haven’t taken in a few years and have missed it thanks
I am looking forward for my mojo getting new vibes and enjoying all of the classes.. haven’t taken a class with y’all in a few years and missed it. Thanks and see ya later
I’m grateful for all the information about different techniques. Some techniques have been really fruitful surprises that I have continued to use in my art. I’m definitely going to sign up for next year.
I would love to learn how to let go and be free to love drawing faces, and to move on and let myself enjoy the next part of painting etc my faces. I spend so much time on a face (from memory not a pic) that after weeks of getting it perfect it ends up staying as a drawing as I cannot bring myself to paint it in case I ruin it. Kezzy 🙂
I have just begun my journey into portrait and figure painting. I love the work that each of these artists produce and would be thrilled to learn some of the styles and techniques these classes have to offer. In doing so, I hope to discover my own unique style.
Hi Kara, I’m from Belgium, a very small country in Europe. I’m so happy I found your online school. I have learned a lot in the past two years. I like to learn more. The last months I didn’t paint alot because of a tremor in my right hand, so I have to do what paintings of Let’s Face 2022. From the moment my hand is better I will continue. I looking forward to all the courses your school gives.
I miss read the Giveaway Instructions so earlier commented and shared on FB and not on your Blog.
The classes offered cover a wide variety of techniques and use of different mediums which give me the opportunity to enjoy creating art even if it not up to the standard of other artists. Wonderful to be have an opportunity to be part of Lets Face It Art community.
I have learned so much from the classes that I’ve taken through this wonderful Art School and am so hungry to learn more! I am so grateful to all the amazing artists who share their expertise. I started taking the online classes during Covid shut down. these classes helped me to focus on the positive and use the time during isolation to get in touch with a new creative side of my self. I will always be grateful for this.
I’m excited to learn new techniques and styles. I’m starting out a bit late in life with this but I’m enjoying taking art classes and learning g new things. It’s a relaxation for me.
I love trying out new media and experimenting with traditional media and methods! It stretches my skills and gives me a fresh interest in portraiture!
I am very excited to learn about new materials and techniques for creating portraits! The results are so unique and test my skills in all the right ways. I surprise myself with the beautiful results!
Love the variety and looking to try something different that I may want to do more and more of.
i will soak up whatever yall throw out- Love this course!
There are so many thigs I wish to learn, learn new skills and then make them my own!
I am very intrigued by abstracted realism in portraits and am looking forward to the lessons in 2023. I also would love to learn more about creating using figures.
Of all the online courses, this is definetely my favoirite spot. Its a variety of teachers, methods and expressions, that one cannot but join every year. I cant say thank you enough to Kara and all her representative teachers. I do love urban sketch and Monochromatic figures in Charcoal and pastels. Oil portraits I have done so many in the past , but they never tire! All the past lessons have taught me so much that each year I come back to learn more! Thank you!
Would love to learn more about expressive portraits.
The lineup looks exciting and challenging. Next level. This is what I was hoping for. You did it again Kara!
I have only completed 1 lesson from the 2020 LFI and was so happy with the outcome. It took me forever though! The thing I want to learn most is to know when to stop! I have struggled with this for so long and have overworked paintings to a point of not being able to save them. I would like to shorten my time on a painting and still get a great result. I realize it might be my own self criticism that makes me keep going, I have created some pieces I am proud of. Sometimes, when looking at one on the wall a few days later I’m surprised by how good it is, I will ask myself, how did I do that!? It’s a great feeling. Then when the next painting isn’t going well I get so defeated that sometimes I can’t get back into painting. At times I just stop before a painting is completed because I’m afraid to mess it up. It’s a real struggle for me to get to that medium place. I had never worked with fluids prior to watching the lessons through LFI and am loving it. All the different artists makes your classes amazing! I want to continue to learn more tips and techniques to become a better, streamlined, portrait artist!
I would like to improve my drawing skills and paint and draw more portraits…Love making art every day and the variety of teachers and this course will help me with inspiring lessons every week. Thanks for the opportunity to win a free spot!
I would like to learn about mixing charcoal with other media, like clear gesso, acrylic paint, etc.
I’m looking forward to the many different styles, but I am also hoping for more oil portraits.
I would love to continue developing my skills in drawing portraits and moving into figures which I am less confident about.
I am such a beginner that there is no facet/technique I am not super eager to learn about. To start with, I’d love to be able to use shading more effectively and to learn how to draw more realistic faces.
This is such an exciting giveaway! I enjoy drawing portraits, and I would love to learn more about different techniques and materials one can use 🥳👏
I’m a 17 year old self-taught artist from South Africa. I’d love to pursue a career in art. I’m always looking to learn and this is the perfect opportunity. I would love to learn more about creative and unique uses of colour!
I am not looking for something specific but it will be nice to see and be inspired by many artists and techniques. Love this concept to help be grow as an artist.
I am hoping to work on composition and line integrity. As someone who plays around with art when I can it would be nice to have some lessons to force me to focus and encourage me to improve my skills. With 2 sets of ailing parents, it is difficult to carve out time for myself. Thank you for entering me in your draw 🙂
I’ve shared in Facebook and already subscribe and would love to learn how to do portraits/figures in oils which I have never tried. I need to find some direction and would like to try oils rather than my acrylics and mixed media 🤗
Love your enthusiasm for art!!! The effort you put into sharing your passion is remarkable!!!
I want to learn how to paint the face and understand how to look at the shadows and highlights and draw.
What a fabulous line-up of artists!
