Extreme Portraits Online Workshop Giveaway!

 It's just one of those weeks where I may have to post a couple of times a day to get you up to speed with all the juicy creativeness that has been going on over the last few weeks.   From North Carolina to South Carolina, on over to Memphis and back again to the Outer Banks, it's been a whirl wind time with so many memories and new friends 'collected' along the way,  I am truly blessed to be doing what I love each and every day.

First things first, for those of you who have been waiting (thank you for your patience)...my next online class is coming up starting Monday, May 26th-- and ongoing for 6 weeks with access as a self study thereafter for 12 months from the date you start (or class begins, whichever is longer).  This class will be held over at Dreaming in Color's Arte Village and will include a 30.00  coupon for product at the shop online.  We will be using a variety of mixed media painting and drawing supplies, most of which you probably already have.   There's still plenty of time to join and collect your supplies, I promise!!

As an added bonus, I'm giving away 2 spots to the class--one from my newsletter sign ups over at Art Is You in Memphis, that winner is "Melony Lane"  whooohooo~~  Melony,  you can contact me to receive your class info;  The second giveaway is going to be a quickie--I"ll announce the winner on Thursday morning so you have 2 1/2 days to get in on the promotion.  Simply make a comment here and tell me what you love about portrait painting or what you'd like to learn--share this post and you can get an extra entry.

To claim your extra entry, simply leave an additional comment on this post. If you have already signed up for the class and win (random number generator will choose the entry from all commenters) you can choose to get a refund, give away your winnings as a gift to someone else, or you can apply a credit to another one of my online classes at Dreaming Color.


****NOTE---PLEASE PLEASE be sure to leave your contact info if you don't have a blog or email associated with your comment.


 I am so excited to present....

Extreme Portraits
Start Date : May 26th -June 30th 2014
Class Description:
Are you looking for ways to build more depth in your portrait painting? Extreme Portraits is the newest portrait class offered by Jodi Ohl that will help you take your portrait work to the next level, even to a cutting edge extreme. In each of the lessons covering a span of six weeks, you will find easy to follow directions and content that is rich in information that you can use not just in your portrait work, but a variety of mixed media applications.
In the fall of 2012 Jodi released Painterly in Pink, an online class which focused heavily on drawing before painting the mixed media stylized portraits and now we are excited to present the much anticipated offering of Extreme Portraits, which takes many of those lessons learned in her first class to a new level of depth and character. The focus on this class will be more on paintings and building up layers through glazing and underpaintings along with some fun extra surprise lessons.

I hope to see you in class!
