Drawing and painting faces is one of the things that a beginner artist think defines whether they are “good” or not. It’s certainly one of the most intimidating things the first time you try. I’ve seen Kara Bullock’s online art course Let’s Face It every year but was afraid to even think about joining it.
This year, I started to come into my own as a mixed-media artist and I’m ok with making some ugly art as I learn. I know that the faces I’ll learn to paint in this course will come from 26 different artists with a vast array of styles and over 50 lessons on drawing and painting faces.
A few of the artists I’ve already taken classes from and love, while others have styles I’ve admired and have wanted to learn from. I’ve spoken before about Toni Burt, she uses watercolor in easy to play with ways with faces in her work. Several of my favorite paintings are a result of her simple face sketch instructions. I was actually brave enough to frame this one and hang it in my home. This girl is a watercolor, graphite pencil, and ink completed in early 2022.
Maria Pace-Wynters is another teacher that teaches you to let go of what you actually see and paint what you feel. I have done two of Maria’s face projects including this one with a Glennon Doyle quote included. This was fall of 2021 in acrylics.
One artist I’m particularly excited about taking a course from is Emma Pettit. I love her exaggerated body parts & facial features in her portraits and can’t wait to see if I can dive into that world. She has three stand alone courses in Kara’s artist network too that you can explore here.
These are just a few of the artists that I’m familiar with so I’m excited to see what else there is to learn and explore. I signed up during the EARLY early bird special and I have to say I’m surprised to find content already populated in the classroom. Supply lists, resources and several Live lessons have already happened in the exclusive Facebook group.

Let’s Face It is in it’s 8th year so you know that it just keeps getting better and better.
In 2023 the focus is on a year of FREEDOM TO CREATE…..
In the past years, Let’s Face It has always had a theme, but Kara wanted to see what would happen if she gave artists full liberty to create whatever they wanted, and let’s just say, the lessons are BEYOND EXPECTATIONS!! LET’S FACE IT will continue to have different angles AND poses each week to keep you learning and interested!
Do you only want to work in your favorite medium? That’s up to you. I know that I have health issues that preclude me from using oil paints so I’ll be doing those lessons with acrylic or watercolor or whatever mixed media magic I decide. (Also…. I’m MUCH too impatient to wait for oil paint to dry)
It’s your year so you get to do what YOU want to do. I’m so excited to get started.
