I have always been so intrigued and fascinated by the geisha. I think it all started when I watched the film, “Memoirs of a Geisha” based on the book by Arthur Golden. I never thought that I would ever paint or draw a geisha so when I signed up for a workshop by Kara Bullock Art I was thrilled.
I've learned a lot going through the documentaries Kara shared with us. And was amazed with all the beautiful gowns, hair and makeup. Since I've been creating mixed media art dolls using paperclay.
I've decided to create my first ever Geisha inspired art doll.
Here are some pictures:
She is one of my most precious and inspired art dolls I ever made. I love to see how she has turned out and seeing my art in 3D.
Hope this post inspires you to try new things and to look forward to creating what you love.

The last two days I attended Kara Bullock's first in-person workshop. It was such a beautiful experience to meet other artists and enjoy the teachings of one of my favorite teachers Kara. In this workshop we had the chance to explore different charcoal mediums such as vine, compressed, pencil, colored charcoal and even powder! Not only we were exposed to the wide array of charcoals available but also Kara demonstrated how they can be used on different substrates such as watercolor paper, toned paper, and card boards. And the best part...Kara gifted us her online Charcoal Like Mad workshop!!! <3 <3 <3
I am now learning to love the depth I'm getting by adding different charcoals and not to be afraid to get messy. And to remove and add as much layers as I want in my drawings or paintings.
I must say that if you ever get a chance to experience an in-person workshop, you should go for it! Taking online classes gets pretty lonely and even though our online Art Community is pretty huge and we support each other all the time, being with other creative peers it's actually pretty awesome.
I made some amazing connections and became friends with my classmates. I am looking forward to more in-person workshops. I'll be attending the following workshops in July 2017 and sharing my experience here in my blog. So keep in touch!

Here are some pictures taken during the workshop, showing how much fun everyone was having :P
The beauty of this experience is that not only we walked away with such wonderful memories, new friendships but also new knowledge and a lot of different artwork to be proud of. My goal is to continue practicing what I've learned and see in a few months how much I've improved.
Thank you for stopping by my ART blog.
