This is the natural progression from Foundation Modules 1 and 2. You will begin to extend your artistic vocabulary and gain confidence.

We will look at perfecting and honing techniques. Your instructor will demonstrate many of the techniques below by painting some of the popular classic face painting designs. You will then practice them under the instructor’s guidance.
