Given the many requests of the years and Considering that each year I have several events and clients that want me to paint more and more models each year. I am going to be putting together some bodypainting and makeup workshops to train people in Oklahoma about the industry. Some of the do’s and don’ts, safe materials and many other topics. This will also allow me to build a team of talented people that will be able to help me when working for larger client projects. Having a team of 3 to 6 to paint 10 models is a lot easier than taking it on by one’s self and it will allow me to focus that extra time on the level of detail and quality that i want in my own work without feeling rushed to produce the end results.
Are you someone that is interested in attending or being a part of such a workshop? I need models for these as well as students. So let me know your interest and as things start coming together I can let you all know so we can start making things happen.
The first workshops will be NON-NUDE, but I will be teaching some concepts regarding painting for photography,events and other concerns that may be 18+. Any workshops that I do that are 18+ models will be wearing bottoms and pasties.
Looking at April 14th or 15th around 3pm. Talking with Venue now to see which day is best.
- The cost for the workshop will be $50. (Part of which will go to secure the venue and other costs)
- If you are a student, you will be asked to tip the models you are working with.
- If you have your own model, you may bring them with prior advance notice.
- All models give consent to students to take photos for their portfolio for shared use. Model Release may be provided.
As always, I appreciate everyone’s support and I hope the years to come will be fruitful, creative and wonderfully productive to the arts in Oklahoma. Body Painting is a great way to get your work out their whether you are an artist, a photographer or a model.
Now I ask you, what is the next step and who is interested?
