Alphonse Wiebelt  – Incorporating References
In an age saturated with visual and creative inspiration of all kinds, how do we as artists communicate and get our vision across for an editorial or creative project? Being able to incorporate elements from the past in new and modern ways becomes a critical skill set for all types of work. Whether from icons of the screen, to music legends or the muses of countless fine artists, we look back to look forward in our work.  In this workshop with Alphonse Wiebelt, artists will focus on how respecting the past to contribute to the future can aid us in our visual composition and to communicate our vision. Artists will also use mood boards and images for reference and in return map out a face chart referencing the elements of the images to create and execute a complete beauty story based on the provided references. Sponsored by: Muse Beauty.Pro

In this program by AJ Crimson, attendees will learn about creating contour and highlight that looks seamless and undetectable in every makeup application. Sponsored by: AJCrimson Beauty
