Join Joshua Werner as he shows you his step-by-step process of creating a unique portrait while using a variety of mediums in conjunction with acrylic paint. Students will learn texture techniques, utilizing cut paper in layering techniques, using markers and color pencils, and wet and dry brushing techniques as well as learning the basics of painting a portrait with acrylic paints. The end result will be a nicely rendered portrait painting that “thinks outside the box” and is unlike any other!
Believe it or not, little-to-no drawing experience will be necessary to take this class!
