DESCRIPTION OF LESSONS

This course will begin by giving you some background knowledge into the world/life of geisha.  I have curated several videos for you to watch and learn from, along from being incredibly inspired by.  Along with the videos, a Pinterest board has been created for you to ignite your own inspiration.  I encourage you to begin your own interest board to gain inspiration.

After viewing the videos and Pinterest board, we will move into some warm up lessons.  These lessons are really just to get you muscles moving and your mind excited.  Sketch a few geisha images that you are inspired to draw.  Next we will move into a mixed media lesson with two geisha under a cherry blossom tree.  In this lesson we will explore using mixed media such as a photo, stabilo, gesso, and more.  In the third lesson, we will play with collage, pattern and color.  It will be a lot of fun!

Our final lesson, and one of my favorite pieces EVER, will teach us how to draw a larger scale figure on a wood panel.  We will play with texture, collage, and pattern.  I will share a few tools that I enjoy using to create raised patterns on her kimono.  Discover an easy method to drawing hands!  I couldn't end this class without a bonus lesson!  I am intrigued by the make up that geisha use and how perfect it looks, even on the nape of their neck!  So, the final lesson was inspired completely by that and I think it is a fun way to finish off!  These lessons are all very colorful, and super playful

MEET KARA BULLOCK - ARTIST/INSTRUCTOR

KarawithGreenPaintings

I'm a people watcher, a dream chaser, and a go getter!  Not long ago I was watching my first online art video and thought to myself, I CAN DO THAT!

 

Today, I run an online art school that offers classes to inspire your art and business.  I always thought that it was art that I loved, but I recently realized that people are my true passion, and art has been my vehicle for making connections with others all over the world!

 

I am happy you are here, and look forward to connecting with you and supporting your creative journey!

PRIVATE GROUP JUST FOR YOU!

This course will have a private Facebook group just for you!  The artist will be actively involved with the class via Facebook the first four weeks the course is open!  After that the course will be a self-study.  The artist may or may not be involved after the four weeks.  We are looking forward to seeing your artwork!
