Jodi Ohl – Facial Features Primer

Jodi Ohl
Facial Features Primer
Saturday 22 April
Evening Workshop


If you are intimidated by sketching or painting faces, this is the class for you!

During this lightening fast class we will learn the basics of sketching facial features along with quick studies using watercolors, pencils, charcoal, and ink.

You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can create features that come to life in a semi realistic way with just a few supplies and a little practice under the guidance of your instructor. 


*Students will work on water color paper, drawing paper but are also invited to bring their journals for additional work.   Projects will be technique based and quick studies, not full faces (unless you are more advanced and work fast)

Jump in and see how fun ‘Face painting” painting and sketching can be!

Skill Level:  Beginners and up are welcome!  Whether or not you’ve drawn faces before or features, you’ll enjoy creating these magical, semi-realistic studies and walk away with a lot of knowledge to practice more in depth faces at home.
