Face Painting Workshop – Leicester

Last weekend I held my first face painting workshop in my new home studio, the walls of which I painted to reflect the brightness and cheeriness of face painting! The intention was to create a perfect bubble of joy in which to hold my lessons.

More photos of the room to come, as I initially decided to paint just one wall but quickly decided I need to paint the whole room like this! It’s going to be beautiful 😍

This face painting workshop was attended by 3 participants, all of whom were absolutely fantastic! We covered all the fundamentals of face painting – teardrops, swirls, dots, double dipping, tiger stripes and ‘one stroke’ painting.

We always practise the techniques first on our hands and arms then contextualise what the participants have learned in actual designs on practise boards eg. tiger, butterfly, Spiderman, princess, unicorn, flowers, dolphin!

Following all the fundamentals of face painting we move onto ‘one stroke’ painting and learn how to paint flowers, leaves and princesses using this technique.

Taster | Fundamentals of Face Painting!

Good afternoon! After a chat with a friend recently about my face painting training, I’ve decided to have a little re-jig of how I structure the lessons. The aim is to make the classes more accessible for more people – financially and creatively!

I am now offering a Taster session – ‘The Fundamentals of Face painting’ – for those of you brand new to face painting or for people who just want to try out a new fun creative activity!

face painting lesson 1 no price

This session is one hour long and can be taught 1-2-1 or in small groups of up to 4 people. The focus will be on tear drops, swirls and dots –  of which most face painting designs are comprised – and we’ll put these into practise using a butterfly and spiderman designs!

My taster session can then be followed up with an intermediate class – entitled ‘Tiger’ – where we’ll look at achieving the perfect tiger stripe! We’ll also look at ‘double dipping’ (how to create two tone petals) and start to utilise ‘one stroke’ painting. To contextualise your new skills we’ll create a Tiger face and a princess.face painting lesson 2 no price

In addition to these two sessions, I will then be offering a 2 x 2 hour ‘one stroke’ painting class! You will learn what brushes to use, how to load them, and how to create flowers, leaves and fantasy creatures!

face painting lesson 3 no price 2

The first part of this face painting class will look at one stroke flowers and one stroke leaves, which can be used to create beautiful eye designs and arm art. You’ll then have a choice of what you’d like to create: unicorn, dolphin, snake and dinosaur.

Any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! I look forward to hearing from you. livilollipopfairy@gmail.comlivi signature
