Wonky Faces in Watercolors with local artist Jane Kelley

  • This event has passed.

July 13, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm


Drawing and painting faces can be intimidating at times, but creating “wonky” faces is nothing but fun. In this class you will learn how to use your non-dominant hand to quickly sketch in a few features, and then use a variety of water soluble materials to add in shadows and definition to your faces. Using your nondominant hand gives you complete permission to make these faces as quirky as you like. Your faces will be perfectly imperfect! You will also add collage to the page along with written words or quotes.

Creating these faces is a freeing experience. You will learn that you can draw faces even if you think you can’t! By the end of class you will have created at least 2 wonky faces and maybe more, starting your own rogues gallery of interesting characters.

In this class Jane will provide you with step by step guidance on how to draw the features for faces. (Samples of various face images will be available for you to experiment with). From there, you will then be guided with techniques for adding watercolor shadows to give your faces dimension, and later adding watersoluble pencils for more definition. Finally, you will be invited to personalize your creations with collage, backgrounds, ink and quotes.

Nice quality watercolor sketchbooks by “Handbook” will be available for purchase for $20 the day of class. Everything else is included. No experience is needed!
