In 2023 we will focus on a year of FREEDOM TO CREATE.....

In the past years, we have always had a theme, but I wanted to see what would happen if I gave artists full liberty to create whatever they wanted, and let's just say, the lessons are BEYOND EXPECTATIONS!!  LET'S FACE IT will continue to have different angles AND poses each week to keep you learning and interested!

    I love this course. I took LFI 2022 and I absolutely loved it and couldn’t wait to sign up for 2023. The projects to date have been excellent and well thought out and all if the instructors make it look so easy! Taking this class and learning and gaining confidence in my portraits is worth every penny.

  2. Ronē (verified owner)

    A wonderful year long practice!! I learned so much and expanded my skills plus it’s been a kind encouraging community that is always there to help!! This is my 2nd year….

  3. Sofia (verified owner)

    I want to tell you how much I’m enjoying LFI2023! It’s a fabulous format with so many different techniques to learn and experiment with in each single class! Thank you Kara e all the amazing teachers

  4. Ellen Wilson (verified owner)

    this is my 4th year.. and every year the course keeps getting better and better. There are so many talented artists teaching their techniques and offering advice, each week.. you might feel overwhelmed but its at your own pace. The community on facebook is encouraging, helpful and will keep you looking forward to each weeks class. Kara surprises us with art auctions and mini classes.. so you never have a week without something new to learn. No pressure arting, and lots of fun. I think I am in for a lifetime now 🙂

  5. Jane Schneider (verified owner)

    LFI 2023 has exceeded my expectations. I look forward to it every Monday and can’t wait to be creative and learn some new technique. If Art is your passion, don’t wait SIGN UP NOW so you can join in the creative fun with teachers from all over the world.

  6. Corinne Kirkham (verified owner)

    This is my third year of participating in LFI, and I already I know it is going to be the best.
    I have learned more than I could ever imagine over the past two years, and the learning just keeps on getting better.
    In these amazing classes, with hugely talented teachers, I am learning about composition, techniques, materials I’d never even heard of, and I’m now selling my work!
    For the first time in my life instead of saying art is my hobby, I am now calling myself an artist!
    I’ve been told, in the past, that I could draw but couldn’t paint, but I would challenge those critics now.
    All thanks to Kara Bullock and her talented team.
    The community of students are wonderful too. So supportive and encouraging. One can only bloom in such a nurturing environment.
    I 100% recommend anyone joining, regardless of ability. The best bargain out!

  7. Patti Doll (verified owner)

    Let’s Face It 2023 has stepped it up a notch in the level of lessons. I enjoy lessons that lean towards fine art and the lessons so far have done just that!

  8. Jennifer

    Great class for budding or seasoned artists. Try a variety of mediums and styles from a broad range of artists: it’s never boring. There’s the added bonus of getting feedback from this broad community of supporting classmates. Truly the best art class on the virtual market. If you are worried about keeping up, don’t: you can go at your own pace (back classes are available for lifetime). If you are more confident or want to work on your own style, use your own model or reference photo and use whatever supplies you already have on hand. Can’t say enough about this wonderful class. Just do it!

  9. Lesa cullen (verified owner)

    Love this class
    Learning techniques I have never seen
    Worth every penny

  10. Cynthia (verified owner)

    I am so intrigued with these weekly portraits and learning more about these wonderful artists, that I definitely plan to purchase these classes from the past & in the future. Having a great time experimenting and learning new techniques.

  11. Rose

    SO much instruction for $189 (and less if you signed up during the Early Bird promo)! A years worth of different styles, subjects, mediums, and teachers from all over the world AND you can keep the course and access to the videos for life!!!! Complete each lesson weekly or go at your own pace! So many lessons can be adjusted to use different mediums and it is perfect for any level artist from brand-new to professional. Can’t recommend LFI & KB Community more!!

  12. Michel Lyons Puckett (verified owner)

    This is my second year with Let’s Face It. I am not a gifted artist, I just love the vision of creating something worthwhile This program offers a different lesson each with a wide variety of artist/teachers and a different challenge. It is like going to art school via your computer. You can follow along step-by-step to create the most fabulous art or you can use the lesson as a jumping off point to explore the method a bit deeper. You will find your voice and explore methods you never thought that you would try. It is wonderful, exciting, challenging, and so worth it. Where can you find such a value other than right here on Let’s Face It. Oh, and the posting on FB, what a treat to see so many interpretations of the same lesson. It is such a value in so many ways

  13. Randy Weldon

    As a new artist after I retired during the pandemic, I thought I could only draw stick figures and color with crayons. But then my wife introduced me to Kara Bullock’s art community and classes. We signed up together for Let’s Face It 2022, and I found out that with excellent step by step instruction even I could create some amazing portraits in many different styles and media. My family and friends are stunned by many of my portraits of everyday people and even family members. I love the supportive Kara Bullock Art community which always finds something positive to highlight about my pieces. Now I am taking the new Let’s Face It 2023 class, and this year I am able to create some amazing portraits freehand, using all the drawing and painting knowledge and practice from the 2022 class. Love every weekly lesson, and all the many different instructors and styles!!

  14. Flopsy (verified owner)

    Let’s Face It! Is an incredible course. Each week you will receive a new lesson from different tutors, using varying methods, materials, and teaching style. You can choose to complete every lesson exactly as instructed, or pick and choose which lessons to complete, adding your own touches and style as you grow more confident with painting portraits. It’s the best portrait painting course out there! And should you find an artist or a style that you truly resonate with, you can go on to other courses that suit you. And the community! A private facebook group to discuss the classes and share your work – I’ve met so many wonderful people and gained so much knowledge just from chatting in the group. The value for money is incredible! If you are looking to learn or improve your portrait painting, you can’t go wrong with this course – I love it!

  15. Kim (verified owner)

    I am a mixed media artist at heart, and this course has opened my eyes to new techniques I can use as an artist. So much talent is wrapped up in this course, as well as the special offers, within the course. Your knowledge will expand, your motivation will once again emerge. The is my second year in a row, and I’ve learned so much!

  16. Mary Claire Gerling (verified owner)

    Thank you for the great teachers. I’ve been challenged and pleasantly surprised. I’m very happy how this year has been going. Thanks

  17. Olivia V

    This is my first time participating in Let’s Face It and I am learning so much. The instructors have all been wonderful. The community is equally wonderful and supportive. I was apprehensive at first because I am a beginning artist, but this course is definitely for all levels. You will be amazed at what you will be able to accomplish! I have participated in a few courses and this by far has been my favorite.

  18. Wendy Cornah

    I can easily give this course 5 stars. If you are interested in finding out different art techniques, having a lesson every week and joining a caring helpful community then LFI is the art course for you.

  19. Sandra Rice (verified owner)

    I’ve never been so excited for Monday in my life-I get up, grab my coffee and watch these amazing, diverse lessons. Not only do you pick something up from each lesson, it makes your brain work to figure out how to get similar results with the supplies you have on hand. I will join every year from now on!

  20. josephine Coyle (verified owner)

    Superb, outstanding, amazing, informative, could go on with superlatives to cover each lesson given – honestly I have been impressed with each yearly Lets Face It instructors –
    This is for all creatives – I recommend highly – and the helpful positive feedback from the caring Artist Community is a plus and blessing – thanks Kara for your Art School.

  21. jeffannem (verified owner)

    Let’s Face It 2023 has an amazing group of art instructors. It is awesome to receive instruction from such a diverse group of individuals; each having their own style, preferred mediums and techniques. The instruction never locks you in to doing the painting just one way; the instructors encourage you to use your own favorite colors and supplies, and I am amazed with the art that comes out of each lesson. The group of artists taking Let’s Face It 2023 are so supportive of everyone. Whether you are a beginner or have an art degree, I think you would enjoy this class.

  22. Cheryl Rodo (verified owner)

    Best course I’ve taken to help move me out of my comfort zone and try new techniques. Great instructors. Highly recommend

  23. Regina Mausolf-Cataldo (verified owner)

    I love so much the courses, that is for me a pleasure to follow them. I like the way of communication in the group, it is so inspiring for me. There is always a support for everyone even for the questions. That is unusual in other situations. In these weeks I have learned so much and that had the effect to enhance my passion. I am glad to have found this opportunity.

  24. Roswitha de Luarca

    I’ve taken Kara Bullock’s courses since 2016 but Let’s Face it has a special place in my heart. It’s a wonderful course taught by professional artists, the streaming is impecable and I’ve learned so much techniques which are reflected in the excellent work of the students. The community is also very gentle and supportive. I highly recommend this course

  25. Lesley Watts (verified owner)

    This is my first go-round at Let’s Face It and the course has far exceeded my expectations on multiple fronts – great value for money, inspiring array of lessons, and an incredibly supportive online community. It really doesn’t get much better!

  26. Patricia Wilson (verified owner)

    This my second year of LFI and I absolutely LOVE everything about it. The teachers are amazing, every week we get a new lesson, so many different styles and techniques to try there is always something to stimulate and motivate. The community of artists is fabulous too, so many kind and caring individuals who will offer praise, advice and comfort to all levels of students. Best time ever since I joined. ?

  27. Lisa Melcher (verified owner)

    LFI 2023 is absolutely amazing! I would highly recommend this course and all of the courses Kara offers. These courses have helped me improved my artwork tremendously. I will be forever a customer and a fan of Kara Bullock Art School! Thank you very much!

  28. Louise Thorpe (verified owner)

    This fabulous course is great for anyone at any stage in their art journey. I started with Let’s Face It 2017, having never picked up a paintbrush. A complete beginner to painting faces. LFI started an incredible journey for me leading to solo and collaborative exhibitions and many sales.
    Now the course still inspires me to play with different styles and mediums and helps to keep my own work fresh. The chance to learn from so many amazing artists is such a gift. These days everything ends up lIke my style. But LFI was the key to developing this style.
    Don’t hesitate. You will not regret taking this course

  29. Shantal Groer

    Let’s face it is a wonderful community of artists. It’s fun, informative and full of life and colour.
    Each lesson is beautifully laid out and explained.
    There’s a vast variety of techniques, mediums and fun ways of exploring creativity. We are encouraged to experiment and use what we have and create what we want.
    The website is organised and very user friendly.

    I was nervous to join in 2022 due to the calibre of art lessons but now I’m so grateful I did. LFI has helped me grow in ways I could never have imagined and it’s a course I’d love to be a part of yearly.

    The love and support that’s put into LFI is evident and appreciated. Kara, the instructors and the community are amazing. It’s one of my most favourite places to be!

  30. Maggie Garza (verified owner)

    LFI23 has helped me so much in growing in my drawing and painting. Last year i quit at lesson 12 but proposed myself to try and stay focused this year on LFI23 and I am keeping up with the lessons! I can see the improvement of my faces in my IG feed. That is where i am keeping an eye of my growth. As time allows I’ll go back to LFI22 and finish that up as I am sure there are many valuable lessons to finish in that group!

  31. Amy Dibner (verified owner)

    LFI2023 is an amazing opportunity to learn from SO many different and talented teachers, using SO many mediums and techniques, and approaching portraiture in SO many ways! You get the picture!! This is my first LFI class, and also my first foray into portraiture, and I am amazed at how much I’ve learned – and there’s still half a year’s worth of lessons to go! Thank you, Kara Bullock, for making this class so accessible and making Mondays so special, bringing each new lesson.

  32. Patricia Wilson (verified owner)

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lets Face It! This is my second year and it’s even better than last year. Great teachers, great lessons and so many different styles, techniques and media there really is something for everyone. Such good value for money – where else could you get so many lessons for so little? We’re now at week 30 and I’m very proud to say I have completed every single week so far and loved every one. ?

  33. Rose Cameron

    LOVE Let’s Face It! Every year has been fantastic – it’s a huge bargain considering you get a new instructor each week with LIFETIME access and it’s less than $5 per class!
