Face Painting Training

I run hands on face painting classes for those who wish to learn face painting for themselves. Whether you are an individual or a group of friends or colleagues wishing to train as face painters I can accommodate your requirements. Examples of groups include PTAs, groups of friends, Girl Guide or Scout troupes, Nursery Schools, etc.

This is an opportunity to learn the art of face painting in an informative but unhurried and fun session. The training is ideal if you want to be able to help at your child's school fete or birthday party, or even if you wish to progress to a paid face painting career. The face painting classes are usually held in Welwyn, Herts in small groups of around 6 to 8 people per session.

The training classes are suitable for individuals or a group of friends however I also offer training for smaller groups or on a one-to-one basis. If you prefer to be trained at another location such as your own home, school or club please contact me to discuss your requirements. 

I run classes for Beginners, Improvers and Intermediate levels. For further information about what is covered in each class level or to check class availability please contact me by email at enquiries@fantasticfacesbyglyn.co.uk or by phone on 0797 907 1287 (mobile).

feedback from attendees

"The most amazing few hours I have ever spent. I learned so much-thank you" Carol, Bletchley

"Thank you for an inspiring class. I have already got the feeling ‘I can do this’ and that is thanks to your inspirational teaching. You obviously love what you do and your enthusiasm is very infectious. Not everyone who paints can teach their skills to others, but you definitely can." Sandy, Bedford

"Thank you so much for yesterday. I learnt so much and the class was such fun. Let me know when you have a date for the next level please as I would be interested." Bianca, Milton Keynes

"I send you this message to thank you for the amazing day we spent together last Friday. What a wonderful teacher.  You have the knack of making what looks complicated look simple ( until I try)  but you install such confidence in us all and you take the time with each of us to break down  the design into simple steps , so we find we CAN do it too J Thank you Thank you Thank you. I was amazed by your knowledge and kindness. Last year I discovered this world of colours and I have to recognize it has helped me to paint in a little bit of happiness in some dark zones in my life and thank you for being a part of that." Patri, Spain

"Thank you very much for the class last Saturday. I have come away with enthusiasm and promise I will be practicing on your worksheets all those lines. I painted a tiger yesterday on my son and even my husband said Wow! And commented that he could see a vast improvement…. And he has  NEVER commented before!" Rachel, Surrey

"I cannot say how much I enjoyed the class on Friday I learned so much in such a short time. Thank you for being patient with me, and I think I can now do  thin to thick to thin lines without too much wobbling." Sarah, Hatfield


My face painting colleagues and I often hold 'Jams' which are gatherings of painters of all standards, both new and experienced.

Past students find these get-togethers invaluable for watching other painters work and sharing designs and methods, thus stretching everyone's painting experience.

If you would like to be informed of forthcoming jams please contact me.
