Turn your photos into Day of the Dead portraits with this easy to follow technique. You'll learn how to create mixed-media portraits that look like you spent hours learning to paint them, with no life drawing experience required.
This technique can be applied to art journal pages, artist trading cards, altered books, canvases, or just about any surface you choose. Make them big or small, combine them with other elements or let them stand on their own. They’ll be your own unique portraits!
A complete materials list will be available on the classroom message board. Here are the basics:
A surface for your portrait (paper, board, and journal)
Laser printed photos
Liquid matte medium
Charcoal pencil - medium
Water soluble oil pastels
This is a Pay What You Want class. The class is well worth $50, but I realize that is out of the question for many folks, so please pay what you can, according to your means. The minimum price to take this class is $10, but you can pay $10-$50, as you wish. Pay what you think learning how to paint your own Day of the Dead portrait is worth. Think of anything you pay over $10 as encouragement to offer more classes this way.
