Face Painting Workshop

Our Face painting educational workshops are a fun and relaxing way to learn how to face paint. All face painting materials are supplied on the day. We instruct people of all ages and abilities how to face paint at school festivals, youth groups, shopping centres, trade shows and events. Levels range between beginners to intermediate.

Many people believe that they are instinctively not creative. This is NOT true, everyone has the potential to be an artist, all they need to do is learn the basics of face painting, have a little bit of fun, patience and persistence.

This is a fundamentals workshop –  very hands-on learning! I will teach you how to work the brushes so you know how to paint and hold your brush properly. Countless hours on Youtube never teach you this. If you want to save yourself headaches and time wondering what you’re doing wrong – this is the best way to expedite your learning!

Learning how to face paint is also a lot of fun!

  • Health Safety and Hygiene

  • Tip and tricks: Painting Short cuts and How to master your craft faster

  • Problem-solving – being out in the field
  • Furniture set up
  • Pricing structure
  • Managing crowds and expectations
  • Marketing – getting your business started
  • How to advance your skill after the workshop – to become a pro!

On completion you will be provided with:

  • WLFP Painters Certificate

  • A range of beginner to advance face painting references
  • MSDS – Material Safety Data Sheet
  • Photo Release Form
