Body Painting Lo

The art of body painting and creative makeup is used as a form of self-expression and storytelling. In this session you will learn the art form of body art, you will work with paints, body pens, stencils, brushes, sponges, glitter and other mediums to create a design on yourself that expresses who you are as a unique individual this creation will also be captured and weaved into our visual art film Re-Root.
