Why do you need a grid? You need it when you've done a small painting or drawing that was so good that you wanted to paint it on a larger canvas, yet when you tried to enlarge it freehand, you lost all of the quirks and composition that made that original so unique. The solution? Learn how to do a grid, remembering these words: ASPECT RATIO. Don't worry! Scary words, I know, but all they mean is that you want to know that your small painting is going to fit perfectly onto that larger canvas. In just 20 minutes, you'll have this DOWN!
Hi, I’m Mary Ann Farley.
Welcome to Art and Soul School! I've been an artist for over 20 years, having taught myself through classes very much like the classes you'll find here at Art and Soul School. But you know what? I always feel like a beginner. We'll be working mostly in mixed media, but I'm always taking fun and crazy detours in my art journey, and I'll take you right along with me!
Want to learn how to paint looser? That's been my goal for awhile now--to break out of the constriction of the defined line, so let's bust loose together! All classes are for all levels, and you can always change your mind thanks to my 30-day guarantee.
Remember--your classes never expire! I'm so happy you're here at Art and Soul School. WELCOME.
