LET’S FACE IT – 2017
Yes!!! That’s right!!! Let’s Face It is back for another year in 2017 with a whole new line up of teachers, new sections of study, new surprises, and much, much more!
CLASSROOM IS OPEN!!!
FACE IT – ACCEPT IT – LOVE IT – NURTURE IT
Hello Awesome, Creative Beings!!!! I am so happy to see you back for another year of LET’S FACE IT! Last year, we came together for our very first year of focusing on faces and portraits. I was so thrilled by the response to the course that I just knew we had to have another go! So, here we are, back for more! For LET’S FACE IT 2017, I have put together a ridiculously awesome, super yummy, fantabulous group of 19 of my favorite mixed media artists. Together, we want to share MORE of our strategies, tips, and techniques that we use in order to create our faces and portraits so that you can continue on this path of creating beautiful, creative portraits!
What is LET’S FACE IT?
I know from my own personal experience just how intimidating it can be to draw/create faces and portraits. In fact, at one point, I was so scared by the process that I quit creating for years! After connecting with others via Facebook and art workshops, I found that I was not alone, and this concept of a year of creating portraits began to brew in my mind! Let’s Face It started last year in 2016, and we have 900+ students to date with people still signing up! We have created a community of encouraging artists that want to work together to overcome these fears and support one another along the way!
“In this course, we learn to face our fears of creating faces and portraits, accept where we are on our personal journey, love what we make and know the value of each piece, and continue to nurture our skills so that we feel more comfortable and more confident in continuing on this adventure to finding out what our “face” is!“
LET’S FACE IT 2017 is a course for anyone that wants to practice creating faces and portraits, but was especially designed for those of you that have felt scared or intimidated to do so at some point in your life. This course will be a safe place for you to continue to practice your skills and receive feedback from other artists and learners along the way. The weekly lessons will give you the instruction you need to learn how to construct a face in different positions. You will learn specifically how to draw a face/portrait, and then how to use different materials to complete your portraits. We will use media such as paints, pencils, pastels and more!!!
Just like Let’s Face It 2016, LFI 2017 is also a progressive course. It will be broken down into sections, much like a college course. Sounds great, right!?! What is even better is that each section will have a specific focus. in 2016, we focused on the front face, 3/4 face, and profile. We also spent time on the figure and hands! For 2017, we will have a quick review on some of these and then dive right in to our NEW AREAS OF FOCUS!!! We will be focusing on the following concepts in this course:
- skin tones, light and dark
- mixing your own paints to create color
- more difficult angles of the face
- expressive poses
- young faces and old faces
- beautiful backgrounds
- AND style development
As we progress through the course, the various instructors will be teaching you their techniques and strategies that they use as they create in their particular style. The course is set up in this fashion so that you get tons of practice in different areas.
You will also continue to receive weekly Tips and Tricks with Kara, BUT this year, the guest teachers will also offer their own tips and tricks!! Additionally, you will receive weekly journal prompts to give you ideas and inspiration for regular practice. Below is a sample “Tips and Tricks” video from Let’s Face It 2016.
Here is a breakdown of how a typical section will run:
Course Section on Values – Example Only
Week 1 – Introduction to section with Kara
Week 2 – Lesson with Guest Artist
Week 3 – Mini Lesson/Technique Lesson
Week 4 – Lesson with Guest Artist
Week 5 – Mini Lesson/Technique Lesson
Week 6 – Lesson with Guest Artist
Week 7 – Mini Lesson/Technique Lesson
Week 8 – Lesson with hostess Kara Bullock and Wrap Up
What is really special about LET’S FACE IT is that it is full of various talented artists, each with their own unique style. You will see that some artists have a more realistic style, and others are more whimsical. Each artist has worked very hard to find her style when it comes to creating her face and a bit of that journey will be shared with you in hopes of inspiring you to find “your face”. My hope for Let’s Face It – 2017 is to bring you back for more inspiration to help you continue on your personal journey of discovery and growth as you continue to develop you own unique style of painting portraits.
It is not necessary to take Let’s Face It 2016 prior to 2017. However, if you are interested in taking 2016 as well, you can find it here.
