In this two-day art class, artists will be drawing abstract faces by playing a fun game and using the blind-contour technique. #creative

Class experience

My goal is to inspire artists to try abstract face drawings, learn to see their own artwork from a new perspective, and to appreciate the unexpected!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and spent a great deal of my time looking at master artists and studying art history. I was especially drawn to making abstract art pieces as realistic compositions were very challenging, overwhelming and stressful to me and I enjoyed the free movement and interpretation abstract art encourages. I have enjoyed the blind-contour style of drawings so much, that I drew portraits of my kids this way. It is always so fun to see how they turn out! 

Homework Offered
No specific homework is assigned, but students are encouraged to try more compositions.
Assessments Offered
Throughout the class, I will have artists share their work with me to see their progress and ask questions as they arise.
Grades Offered

Handheld sharpener
Black Sharpie Fine tip marker
Hand-held mirror or photo of yourself (please choose one with only you and preferably a close-up shot: torso and above)
