One on Gina’s specialties is Face Painting where you learn about blending and line work to create different cat faces, princess, monster masks and gruesome wounds. Face Painting for Kids is a hands-on class that comes with your own pallet of professional water soluble theatrical paints.  Face painting is uniquely fascinating in that the design transforms the wearer. Gina’s designs will lift and transport you to new and wild places. From a feline to a beast to a sad or happy clown; face painting will make you laugh, make you jump, make you growl.
