Hi, I’m Jessica Sanders, a self-taught watercolor and mixed-media artist who loves exploring art and sharing it with you!

Whimsical Faces: Five Minutes of Faces

Let’s get loose and sketchy, and fill a page with faces in 5 minutes!    

In this class for any level student, we will challenge ourselves to fill a page with whimsical faces in only 5 minutes! We will push ourselves to explore new supplies, new and different mediums, and become more comfortable with our own style of mark making. :)

Loosening up and pushing our creativity can be challenging. But, anyone can do it for 5 minutes!! 

Before we get started with our challenge, I will share with you a variety of supplies options. Not all supplies are required - you get to pick and choose what sounds fun to you!  

Then, I will walk you through simplified face drawing proportions in a whimsical style.

With no further ado, we will dive into our 5 minute challenge to fill a page with faces!! I will demonstrate, in real time 5 minute sessions, how to draw, sketch, scribble, and paint whimsical faces. We will step out of the box, and use some very unusual tools to create.

This is a no pressure class! It’s not about making amazing art - though you might! It’s about exploration, loosening up, accepting our marks, and becoming more familiar with faces.  

As always, we will wrap up the class with a project using the skills and techniques we have learned in the class.   

The course project

For your project, please submit your 5 minute pages! I can’t wait to see your projects!! 

As always, please drop your questions in the discussion section, and share your projects with me and your fellow students. 

If you love this class, please let me know by leaving a review :)  

Happy Painting,
