Funny Ink Faces (ages 6+)
Saturday, January 14
We’ll first look at some cartoony, stylized & funny faces created by some of my favorite artists who work with this subject: Kenny Scharf, Keith Herring, Barry McGee, and Margaret Kilgallen. Then you’ll fill a page with eye shapes by looking at some of my examples and making-up some of your own, a page with noses and a page with mouths. This is your cabinet of features to choose from.
Next, you’ll put some colorful ink blobs down on a large, smooth paper with a soft brush then use thin ink lines to add your favorite facial features on top. Try some profiles and some straight on. Add glasses, hats, & hair. Results will be playful, not realistic.
