Learn how to face paint like a pro in 2019! Whether your goal is to just paint yourself and your friends or your kids, or make a little extra cash on the weekends, this is the course for you. We want you to enjoy face painting, and show you how much fun it can be!
In our 3 week course, we'll start off with some basic techniques and looks to get you started, then show you how to add details and finesse to take them to the next level.
Week 1: Technique & designs
Teardrops, blending, linework, sponges - all the building blocks to push your skill level forward. There are also a couple of designs that every self respecting face painter should be able to do - tiger, butterfly, spiderman, princess. So we'll show you these.
Week 2: One stroke technique
If you want to look like you have magical powers, then one stroke paints let you paint rainbows and gradients in one go. They will stun and amaze your friends and family. We will show you how to work with them and start to play around to make up your own designs.
Week 3: Finesse & further development
Adding highlights, shadows, glitter, using script liner brushes and adding all the finishing touches that take your design to the next level. We'll also show you some additional designs, like the ever popular unicorn, a really fancy butterfly, and adult designs.
This course is suitable for complete beginners or artists with some experience.
Dates: Starting Thursday January 24th until Thursday February 7th.

You never really stop learning. We love courses, and watching tutorials and YouTube/Instagram videos etc. Once you have the basic techniques you can understand and recognise the elements in other people's face painting designs and be inspired on a whole new level.
