I enjoyed the She Art workshop enough to sign up for another class that began in January 2013. It is called True Free Spirit, and it’s a year-long course with a different project each month. http://www.timssally.com The emphasis is on multi-media collage backgrounds and playful art exploration with all kinds of cool art supplies. Michael’s and Dickblick.com have become my new best friends.
In the class, the instructor creates wonderful faces using acrylic paint. I was afraid to go the paint route at first, and instead chose to paint the background and body, but use Prismacolor pencils on the face. Karlie and Shaylie gave me a really great art book for Christmas called Mixed Media Girls with Suzi Blu, and I was loving her instruction on creating girl faces with colored pencils, so I combined the two techniques on my first few True Free Spirit Girls.
This is my first girl, created in early January.
