Face the Facts Workshop with Dina Wakley

Final spread – two faces, the first one was just pencil, the second painted.

Friday, I went to a really excellent workshop at Ben Franklin in Redmond where Dina Wakley was teaching a three hour version of her “Facing the Facts” workshop.  Dina’s teaching style is quite fun.  I was pleased with my final spread although I like my second girl (to the right) best.

Dina recommended a few things that that I have done or plan to do. The first – make a Pinterest board of faces (done). Second, she recommended trying to draw a face a day for 100 days (at least). This goes right in line with my whole “do something arty” every day resolution; so I think I might give it a go. My Dylusions journal is being used for the documented life project, so I will be using my Strathmore mixed-media journal for faces. I’m looking forward to the classes I’m taking on Sunday.
