Join Jennifer Linderman, local mixed media artist and explore the exciting world of YOU!
In this class we will learn the basics of drawing a portrait and will use ourselves as inspiration! We will then use a variety of media to bring our portraits to life such as colored pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic, gouache, stamps, and whatever we're inspired to use! The brighter the colors, the more media the better! I will discuss the use of color and composition in making your portrait pop and come alive in the style of YOU!
There are only 10 seats open for this class. Register to hold your space.
Date & Time Friday, February 28th, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Instructor Jennifer Linderman
I am a Mom of two children and live in Oakland with my husband and a few pets. My background is nursing but once I began having children I left my profession to spend time with my family. My creative drive (which I never even knew I had) grew strong during this time and has evolved and blossomed to where I am today. I own my own business, Origami Mami where I teach Origami to elementary school-aged kids in the East Bay. That being said, I call myself a practitioner of art and crave showing others what I have learned on my creative journey! Since I am self-taught I have been able to learn things the way I want to learn them while taking in the structure and formalities of art lessons at my own pace. For the past four years I have taken an ongoing botanical illustration class and chose to use colored pencil to be my guide. It has suited me quite well and I want to help others demystify the colored pencil and demonstrate my tricks of the trade for this very versatile media. I am a huge supporter of the DIY movement which is how I have learned so much about mixed media wherein my passions grow deep. Currently, I am painting portraits with botanical elements using watercolor, acryla gouache, ink, collage and anything else that comes my way! Anything is possible when it comes to art!
