Christina Davison

Going to extremes -
Join Christina in this hands-on workshop where we will learn how to modify designs to best fit the gig. 
Exploring designs from one extreme to the other, from realistic and detailed, to the simple and fastest versions.  We can do this with characters, heroes, animals, etc. We will take any design and make it spectacular, and also  simplify and modify to make it much quicker, but still readily identifiable. I will be showing some examples, and also taking requests.

This class will help artists make the best use of work time by equipping them with the tools to speed up or slow down, adding or subtracting details as necessary. Almost every face painting design has multiple possible versions, and together we will explore those possibilities. 

This class is good for artists of all skill levels who want to improve their speed to get through long lines, AND to impress individual clients with detailed and/or realistic designs. 

SUGGESTED SUPPLIES:
Christina will be using these supplies in this class:

•Face paint brushes: #4 round, 1/4" filbert, 3/4 - 1" flat brush

•Foam face painting sponges (cut in half) Christina uses pink sponges by Always Wicked Art (Australia)

•Practice head, practice pad, arms, legs, or a neighbor's face. 

•Christina uses a variety of makeup brands: Snazaroo, Paradise, Global and Wolfe are favorites.

Christopher Barnes

Be More Funny Live!
 
Right on the heels of the release of his new book Be More Funny!, in this brand new workshop, Christopher shares every step he takes in building a comedy routine for his audiences. Along the way, he demonstrates with easy to follow principles the clear differences in building laughs for children versus adults. To begin, he pinpoints the four major questions any magician should ask when approaching a trick to build a new comedy routine. With each question, he shares tons of practical examples, each of which is the beginning of a potential hilarious comedy magic routine.
 
After building a strong foundation of a humorous trick, Christopher tackles the next step of adding comedy dialogue to the routine. He'll explain some easy techniques for finding, adapting, writing, and adding jokes to a routine. He also examines why he adds verbal jokes to his kid show routines and his method for receiving much stronger laughs from children than with those jokes. 
 
Finally Christopher lists some simple additions you can make to your routines, character, and shows to create an overall stronger and more enjoyable performance for all audiences. By the end of Be More Funny Live!, you will have a multitude of straightforward and effective tools to build your own original comedy magic routines, guaranteed to make audiences of all ages laugh out loud!
 

All participants in the workshop will receive a free copy of Christopher’s book Start to Finish: A Comprehensive Guide for Building Kid Show Routines from Purchase to Performance. The 115-page book is not available through dealers; Christopher only provides it to attendees of his live workshops.
