Pursuing Portaits 6 video Lessons
Journal your way to a self portrait that reflects your true self. During this 6 lesson course you will work in the comfort and safety of your own Art Journal. This will be an exploration of our own self and the face that we see in the mirror each morning as we dig deep to find what lies behind the face that we show to the world. Your face may not even look like you, but it will be representative of the inner you. I will show you the techniques I use in my mixed media portraits and guide you towards creating a face that is uniquely yours.
This workshop is intended to be a starting place for those wanting to pursue the art of drawing faces. I say ‘pursue’ because that’s exactly what I’ve found it to be. You can draw a face every day and not have them look alike. Portraits are a great way to watch your growth as an artist. Since the time I created this workshop my work has evolved a lot, but the basic techniques I teach here are still the same. This is a great starting place on a journey that never ends and I’m excited to be offering this retired workshop as a DVD.

I’ve offered these classes in various ways and always through other online venues, but by now offering them as DVD’s will allow me to re-run workshops that people may have missed or for those who would like to have the videos available to refer back to as often as they like. I will only offer a class as a DVD after I’ve decided not to open it for online teaching anymore. Please remember that as I set my price point for each DVD many things are taken into consideration and while I want to keep things affordable I also need to respect those who have previously paid to take the workshop in it’s online format. Because there are no handouts, or instructor involvement as in a workshop, the price will reflect that. The video’s will occasionally refer to “links on the site” or “PDF downloads” etc, and these pertained to the online workshop as it was originally taught. There are no downloads that come with the DVD and you can easily find the supplies used by simply googling the name, most often dickblick.com or jerrysartarama.com will carry them.
All DVD’s are professionally manufactured by a company. The DVD’s come in a Traditional DVD case with the insert as pictured below. The DVD’s themselves have graphics on them as well and each set has an insert in the case with additional information for the class.
