Face Painting Crash Course for Beginners

The quick and dirty beginners face painting workshop! Half day or evening class – 3hrs.

Ever wanted to have a go at face painting or body art but didn’t know where to begin? Maybe you’ve been co-opted into face painting at your local school fete or charitable event and need some skills fast? Then register for this face painting workshop, run by multi-award winning face and body artist Susanne “Suedy” Daoud.

Designed as a face painting tasting plate, this fun class is the perfect place to begin to see if you like it before spending money on a kit. We provide all materials and equipment, go through kit setup, give you the basics of best health and safety practices, and explore some foundation skills through a practical hands-on workshop. Suedy will demonstrate some basic face painting techniques through a few of the most popular designs, and you get to paint along and have a go.

Finally you can ask the questions you’ve been dying to ask and get helpful answers from an experienced professional. A crash-course in the absolute basics for busy people on a budget, this class is perfect for beginners, or for people who are a wee bit rusty on their painting skills and need a refresher course.

Note: This is a basic class for beginners only. It’s designed to give you the basics to get started. Further training and practice is required to become a professional face painter.

Workshop covers:
  • Overview of products
  • What goes into a face painting kit
  • Health and safety basics
  • Intro to foundation skills including sponge blending, line work, and one-strokes
  • Hands-on exploration of skills through several simple, effective, popular designs
  • All materials, equipment, and light refreshments provided
