Making art doesn’t have to be complicated. In this beginner's class, artist Lindee Zimmer shows you how to use simple shapes, clean lines and bold colors to create abstract portraits worthy of any gallery wall. Layer by layer, she breaks down the process. You can either follow her template or go your own way!
Jump right in and start sketching the head shape for your project. Lindee shows you how to easily cut the shape from medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and sand it smooth so it's ready for paint.
Continue working on the head shape by applying a spray coat. Then add in your first layer of shapes. And don't worry, there's a handy guide in your materials that walks you through the process.
Start forming your face by adding shapes to create specific features such as a nose, cheeks and jaw.
