May Workshops in New Jersey Now Open!!


I am thrilled to announce that I am now taking registrations for my May workshops in New Jersey! I’ve always had a drive to help my fellow face painters, which is why I’ve published countless blog posts, free e-newsletters and learning resources, and am currently working on my 8th book.  But for the first time in over 20 years of face and body painting I am emerging from my basement studio, and taking my teaching on the road!! 😉  I am so excited to meet some new painty friends in NJ!  On May 4th I will be speaking at the Northern New Jersey Face and Body Art Guild‘s monthly meeting, sharing some fun boy designs!  The next day I have a full day of hands-on learning planned for you.  Read on for descriptions of each class, and links to reserve your spot.  Hope to see you there!

SESSION 1: “Achieving Detail with Speed”
May 5, 2016, 12:30 PM – 4:30 PM
Bella Faccia Studio: 11 Chelsea Drive, Randolph, NJ 07869

Detail and speed CAN exist within the same design when you learn to apply the techniques, tricks and tips taught in this hands-on workshop!

For decades my peers have been asking me, “how can you create such clean, intricate designs so FAST?!” I finally decided to really study myself, comparing how I paint to how others paint, in order to answer this question. After several years of doing so, I have been able to identify many invaluable yet teachable tips, tricks, and techniques that can be applied to any size design.

Attendees of this workshop will be getting an exclusive sneak peek at some of the material that will be published in my next book. Learn how to achieve a great level of detail in your designs without slowing down by getting the most out of your tools, timing and techniques. Use your new super powers to either increase your speed or get more elaborate in your creations!

In this half day workshop I won’t be trying to sell you on gimmicky tools that are good for only a handful of specific designs. Rather, we will be unlocking the massive hidden potential that some of your most common tools posess. Combined with invaluable tips and techniques, you will be amazed at how much they can do for your speed that you never realized!

Space is limited; register TODAY!

SESSION 2: “Realism: Raised vs Recessed”
May 5, 2016, 5:30 PM -9:30 PM
Bella Faccia Studio: 11 Chelsea Drive, Randolph, NJ 07869
Ever wonder how artists can make something appear to pop off the skin, or create the illusion of holes in the body?
Whether you want to create the illusion of 3D objects on your skin or creatures crawling beneath it, this workshop is for you! By learning how to strategically place your highlights and shadows, you can fool the eye into perceiving whatever your imagination can dream up!
In this workshop we will cover some basic principles of lighting, highlights and shadows. We will then focus on how to apply these principles to create realistic illusions of objects being raised above or recessed beneath the surface.
Space is limited; register TODAY!
We have just 12 seats available in each workshop! Purchase a seat in one half-day workshop for $75.00. OR, register for BOTH workshops for $135! By registering for both you not only save $15, but you will receive dinner, as well as a FREE set of wipe-off technique practice sheets. If you plan on attending just one session but would still like dinner, please bring $10 cash to cover your meal.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope to meet you in New Jersey!! Happy painting!! 🙂
