Express Yourself: dRaw Emotion
Drawing is theatre, and knowing which features to emphasise and how
will turn your drawings into works of art.
Express Yourself shares exactly how I get expression
and feeling into my artwork and how you can do it too.
Being able to draw confidently unbottles your creativity
and delivers a joy that flows into the rest of your life.
We will be exploring a whole range of human emotion
and how to successfully convey that into our mixed media faces.
Why draw faces?
I believe we are drawing different versions of ourselves and familiars.
And just like in our dreams, figures seldom look the way they do in real life.
That's what makes art so interesting!
All of these people that live in our pencils and pens are
facets of ourselves that want to be heard.
Praise for the workshop:
"Hi awesome Jane,
Last night I watched all the videos in the 'subtle changes' class. Thank you for showing the wonderful birth of a character in your creative process, I learnt so much! I love the way you share knowledge - your teaching and communicative skills are extraordinary. Every day I wake up excited to travel in a world I've always wanted to journey through and you are providing the skills and the chance for me to practice the skills I need for the adventure. Artini Express Yourself is a dream come true.
We will launch straight into the expressions, so if this is your first class with me,
you may be best starting with Supplies Me where I teach the basics
of constructing the face as well as show you how to use your art supply stash.
Express Yourself contains 10 Lesson showing a variety of artwork and techniques.
It is $85 and is open for online Self Study now.
All of the class materials are available to for 12 months.

I step into my studio each day not expecting to bring out any masterpieces. That is not my purpose. Instead I hope to find places to start, ideas to continue and the inspiration to strike out with confidence on a creative path. A great day is finding a new way of working that gives a fresh perspective, or to discover how a slight twist of a line can bring unforseen, impactful results
I’m looking for ways to sink into my work. Ways to keep moving. Ways to make meaning.Ways to…Continue
