Jennifer Mercede – Spirit Portraits
Duration of Class: One Day (6 Hours) // Medium: Drawing + Painting // Skill Level: All
Tap into the energy of your subject and draw their ‘spirit’! There is so much to drawing a person, more in fact, than meets the eye. Let’s tap into the energy of a person and allow that to inspire our drawings. Does their delicate, soft personality inspire the use of a thin pencil? Are they bubbly and hilarious and you can’t help but use 3 markers at once? We’ll spend time practicing our drawing and our ‘seeing’ skills. We’ll play and experiment through half the class and then dial in on one or two portraits and really bring that person, and their spirit, to life!
All three of my classes will be unique experiences, with a few overlapping ideas and activities. If you are so inclined, feel free to take Doodle Draw Paint, as well as Expressive Floral Play and Spirit Portraits. The fundamentals from Day One will be a great resource as we explore Day Two and Day Three, though definitely not necessary.
I work and teach very organically, so be prepared to go with the flow!
My classes focus on process. While you may walk away with a piece of art ready to hang on your wall, you may also walk away with a few pieces started & ready to inspire many more hours of creating.
