I'm the Spotlight Artist for The Artful Gathering Blog Hop!

Artful Gathering Event Registration is Open!
I'm the Spotlight Artist for The Artful Gathering Blog Hop! Follow along with me for fun, creativity, and a chance to win a $200.00 e-gift card from Jerry's Artarama!
I will be teaching my fabulous premiere video workshops at
The Artful Gathering Online Art Retreat 2012 Whimsical Characters Session One June 5 - July 17

Whimsical characters give you the freedom to express your artistry with a childlike sense of wonder. I will show you how to enjoy what you create, while allowing you room to explore your imagination. I love to make my classes fun and inspiring, while also instructing you in how to manipulate the art media with the confidence that you will succeed.
To begin you will learn how to draw your sun and moon with details on face aspects, eyes, nose, and mouth. You will also learn shading techniques and use of different tools and pencils. As you develop your Sun and Moon, you will then see how to paint it with expression and colors that burst with energy!

Then you will see how to go forward with a painting. There is also a bonus journal page to keep you inspired to keep on going. Each project will be shown from start to finish, including the pencil drawing steps for each character! Join me on this cute and very inspiring "Celestial journey" and learn to paint a front and a profile whimsical face. Come join me, we will have lots of fun!
