Face painting for ministry
simple face painting to help you connect their hearts with God's
Face painting is an amazing way to connect with people. I have painted faces of children and adults from all around the world, and in doing so for free, have been able to tell so many people how much God loves them and cares for them. In this simple face painting tutorial, I will show you some basic skills for painting faces, as well as provide you with a list of practical conversation starters. You don't have to be a painter or an artist, all of the images I teach are simple enough for beginners! It's amazing what doors begin to open when you simply bring along some face paints! It is suggested that you purchase a face painting set before beginning in order to practice as we go through the lessons. I will be using "Snazaroo" face paints that are easily purchased off Amazon.

"As I have experienced freedom from perfection, my art has felt the results of it. I love mixed media, collage and acrylics. My favorite times of creating happen during worship and prophetic art- watching the Holy Spirit show up and speak in real time as my brush responds. There’s nothing like it."
