Doll Street is running a couple of my favorite classes and I thought I'd tell you about them.
Lady Zen (above photo), a class for artists of all skill levels begins September 27th and will teach the basics of portrait painting from an outline, as well as how to draw your own figure, so students not comfortable with free hand drawing Lady Z can simply trace her and those students that are paint brush challenged may choose to simply “color her in.”
Students will learn layering techniques on canvas board incorporating pen and ink, colored pencil, Golden Fluid Acrylics and textured papers. Embellishment fine details include Swarovski crystals in her neck wear and gold leafing on her collar as well as flowers both two and three dimensional to create her serene garden.
Faerie Couture begins on October 4th and two samples will be created simultaneously through the class; Faerie of Light and The Dark Faerie, each on a base of faux marble.
Learn layering and distressing techniques, to create illusion costuming, how to create and adapt embellishments as well as how to create two variations of translucent wings from one basic pattern. Create a one of a kind piece of art with a costume that lives in your very own fantasy world!
