Making Faces Workshop • Patti Medaris Culea

Patti Medaris Culea explores the basics to more advanced methods of drawing, coloring, blending, sculpting and ultimately removing and adding a face to a variety of paper, fabric, cloth doll and plastic doll surfaces.



What’s the first thing you notice when you look at the doll?  It’s the doll’s face! 

Looking for a great workshop to improve your doll’s face? Interested in using drawing and illustration in your encaustic, mixed media, quilting and other projects? This course is for you! Patti Culea has spent a life-time drawing faces for flat and 3-dimensional dolls, quilts, book covers, holiday ornaments and more.  Join along as we work with Patti to achieve greater success in drawing faces! A wonderful addition to every artist’s palette, offering a great deal to quilting artists as well.


  • Drawing Workshop — mastering the art of the Face
  • Sculpting and Shaping for a range of expressions
  • Face Up (reworking a commercial doll’s face)
  • Blending Colors on Flat Faces — excellent for Quilters!
  • Plus many additional workshop video segments from Patti’s DVDs!

A wonderful workshop on making faces.
Great for mixed media artists as well.

Note: some of the instruction in this workshop was previously available in other workshops available from Studio Galli Productions. It was included in an effort to make the workshop as comprehensive as possible.
