New Class...read on how to receive a gift worth 95.00!

 by Jodi Ohl September 28th-November 9th
 Character Face Studies using the amazing Silk Acrylic Glazes (featuring many colors in the pink collection in honor of breast cancer awareness) along with assorted acrylics and drawing tools and other fun mixed media techniques.

 Course Description: Stretch your painting and drawing skill and be on the cutting edge of contemporary painting as we explore how to build layers without bulk. Infuse words, doodles, a bit of collage, and most of all, shimmering color in our work as you create 2 unbelievable works of art during this 6 week course.
 This is a fun filled contemporary workshop where students will learn blending and application tips using the silk glazes.

 As well as, how to draw, paint and compose 2 beautiful luminescent portrait paintings primarily using a pink color palette.

 We will explore the wonders of face painting highlighted by the light refractive Silk Glaze acrylic paints by Luminarte, during this tantalizing character/face painting workshop with Jodi Ohl What’s even more exciting, this class will remain open ended for a minimum of one year after launching so you have plenty of time to play, practice and repeat the lessons as often as you like.

 All students that sign up for the course will also receive a coupon for free product from Luminarte worth $30.00. Class Subscription: $65.00 Included in your $65 fee you will receive a coupon worth $30 towards the purchase of Luminarte products. This is a $95 total value for only $65!)

Would you like a chance to win a tuition PLUS 30.00 worth of free product?  This class is going to be awesome....
I'll be giving away ONE tuition for this class  which is a 65.00 value PLUS you will also receive a coupon worth 30.00 for Luminarte paints that we will be using in the class (you can choose anything, and although this class is called painterly in pink, if you are not a pink person...still join in, you can really apply the principles to any color palette you like...or stick with the them and let's get pink!)
Have you seen all the luscious colors of paint from Luminarte?

Janet Ghio said...

This looks like a fabulous class--love the use of such beautiful color on the portraits and the paints look yummy!

I would love to take a class from you, your style is so beautiful. These paints look like they would be really fun to use and so many great colors.

Wow! This class sounds like a lot of fun! I'd love to take it. To be quite honest I am a teacher and too broke to sign up right now, LOL It is tough not having a pay check all summer. Hoping for a chance :)

Wow! I would love to take this class. I adore the faces you make and I absolutely love pink. :) I've been hearing about these Luminarte paints but I can't afford them to try it out.

Trillium said...

Michelle said...

I've never taken an online class, looks like a fabulous place to start.


Maureen Hayes said...

I could write a really long (and true) sob story about why I want to take this class, but the truth is I really need to take this class. I have been trying to get to one of your classes all year, missed my chance at CREATE in NJ and you emailed me about another chance coming up in CT in Oct. but health and finances will still not allow it.

I would LOVE to push myself to try something new, and this for me would be way out of my comfort zone. I have never had the chance to use Luminarte paints either so to win some of those (in PINK,which is my fav, BTW) would be awesome as well.

Thank you Jodi, for always being an inspiring force for good, for giving me a kick in the pants when I need it, and for creating such lovely work that makes me want to learn from you!

If I am able I plan to post about it this for another entry, but either way I will also pass the word about the class. Thanks for your generosity in offering us the chance to win a spot and the paints!

Have a wonderful night,

Karen said...

I would love to win a spot in this gorgeous workshop Jodi. Thanks for the opportunity. The silks look devine too!

Karen xx

bwheather said...

Would be lovely to win. Is this open to international entries? hgoldsmith@gmail.com. ;-)

Kelly Lynn said...

I would LOVE to win a spot in your class. I have been studying and practicing shading faces and using alternative colors. Your work is beautiful and I would love to learn your techniques! Thank you!!

Deana said...

I've been drooling over your classes for some time but with our recent move haven't been able to afford one, winning would be awesome, especially with my new studio set up!

Lisa said...

Jodi, I bought a few silk paints at CREATE last week and they are AMAZING. I may be in love. Of course the PINK palette has some special meaning for me, seeing that I'm nearing my first cancerversary. Anyway, I would love to take this class since I missed both your classes at Artful Gathering.

altermyworld said...

OMG this would make my day! My YEAR in fact.
I have unfortunately been so poor this year i have not been able to take even one workshop and i SO miss them! I would love to use SILKS or at least see how they work.
And what a great great theme. PINK.
I know we all have been touched by breast cancer. So this feels like a tribute of sorts


altermyworld said...

I shared it!
Whether i win or not i would love to share the love!
