Be A Better Face Painter (full-day Sunday)  8am – 12 pm and 1pm – 5 pm  $150

Do you want to know why your butterflies look smashed, why your dolphins look like whales, why your tigers are tired and your unicorns look like beagles?

For years I’ve been helping painters figure out ways to improve their face painting online and they have wished that I could help them in person. Now is your chance to have an experienced instructor honestly critique your face painting and help you improve and go home a better painter. I will literally be holding your hand while we work on your line work, sponging and those design flaws that are making you crazy. 

This is not a class for those that can’t handle critique or don’t need improvement. I will be consulting with each student before convention on what they want to improve and come up with a plan for each one so class size is limited to 10 students. You will be sending me photos of your designs you need to work on and I will help you in class and this will also help the others taking the workshop.
I need your commitment to improve so this will be a full-day class pre-paid through Painted Party so we can communicate before the workshop. Please contact me at for more details about the workshop and payment information.

Festival $$$ Money Making Class      1pm – 5pm     $75

After over 12 years of experience doing strictly Festival Face Painting; I derived a class that teaches the students my Complete System to be able to do festivals solely alone . The artists will never have to worry again about hiring extra painters, line managers or cashier/money takers . This system works tremendously well at festivals and the students are going to love this class due to the large amount of money they would make and also save by keeping their overhead down . This class will explain and teach everything from set up to tear down . From how to book festivals; what questions to ask festival directors and which festivals are the best to apply for . It also teaches organizational skills to be able to perform solely, from setting up your kit, to applying the techniques of my system of painting and controlling the line, to what designs to have on your board and what designs not to have, what designs sell the best and what are the most popular festival designs . This class also teaches how to incorporate face painting, henna and temporary tattoos all in one booth and be able to do all three solely and be highly and financially, rewarding and successful . Because of the teaching of the three genre’s of art, the students are going to make so much more money because it gives them more of a market of not only doing kids, but all and any age group from infants to the elderly . This is an awesome class and I know the students would love it because it is going to make them so much more $$$ .
