Start 2021 with a new way to spend your Thursday evenings - face and body painting with us on Zoom. We will teach you everything you need to know to get you started on your creative journey.
This 6 week course will be delivered on Zoom and we'll be working through a variety of face and body painting techniques to allow you to upskill and discover skills you never knew you had, or develop the skills your already have.
This course is suitable from complete beginners to intermediate students. Each class is designed for artists of every level, so you can progress to the more advanced or detailed version if you are more experienced, but everyone will be able to complete a finished piece every week while working to their own ability.
The craic is 90 on our Zoom calls, so you'll be able to forget about the outside world for 3 hours and just paint.
We use a WhatsApp group for class participants to send in what you're working on during class, since you can't send photos on Zoom, and it keeps us connected and supporting each other throughout the class, and the week.
All classes are recorded live from Zoom and uploaded to Kajabi with ADDITIONAL recordings of particular points from the class that you may need to review, or are particularly important. And a reminder of what to prepare for next week. Once you are signed up with Kajabi, you can install the app on your phone to have all your class videos at your fingertips.
We will be working mainly on ourselves, on our own arms and faces and on the practice board in your kit.
Over this 6 week evening course, we’ll be covering the following:
Brush and sponge technique
Blending and contouring
One Stroke painting techiques
Composition and concept development
UV and blacklight painting
Face and Body Charts
Accessories and finishing touches
Tips on what you should have in your kit

There will be no nudity in this class, and all body paintings we practice will be applied from the decolletage up. Course suitable for anyone over the age of 14. Some past students have had much younger children next to them painting during the class without any problem, but that is your choice and responsibility. There is usually strong language throughout as this course is aimed at adults, so the banter is just that.
