Primitive Portraits 3

I'm so excited to announce Primitive Portraits 3. This 3rd installment of my most popular class, Primitive Portraits begins December 30th.

There are 5 projects that include raw, primitive portrait tags, working with a restrictive color palette and creating a Primitive family portrait.

And I'm so so thrilled to announce that we have 3 guest artists!! yahoo!! Christina Romeo and Tati Vice, and Lana Guerra are joining us to share their process for creating lovely, raw primitive portraits.

Tati Vice

My journey as an artist began early in life, with ballet shoes, a lot of sweat and a drawing, here and there.
After a lot of years passed, many of those dedicated to movement, I realised that I had to find another creative path, one that I could carry with me, as I grew older. 
That was when I found Art-journaling, which opened up a whole new world, with endless possibilities. From then on, I’ve never stopped, jumping from the page to the canvas, taking on-line courses, joining the village at art-retreats, and having the privilege to be among and meet beautiful and very talented people.
As I continue my journey on this creative path, I uncover each day, a passion, a drive and a wish that my art, no matter what form it takes, will touch people’s lives in someway.  And my cup overflows everyday.

So what could I say?
And what could I do?
But offer this heart, Oh God
Completely to you

I'll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the one who gave it all
I'll stand
My soul Lord to you surrendered
All I am is yours
