So after a terribly disappointing afternoon spent on the creation of an email blast on Square, and losing all of the content after hours of effort, I realized that newsletters could be a regular feature on the blog right here, and I'll send the link out in an email blast instead!
So check back regularly for monthly updates on classes, behind-the-scenes, and upcoming projects as well. Thank you for your continued support and for being here.
Please check out the form at the end, so you can give me some feedback on events and classes you'd like to see happen!
Upcoming community events
Faces by Ren is proud to be one of the vendors for the Women-owned business expo in Kingsport later this month. Stop by my booth, plus see over 20 other local entrepreneurs and the wonderful businesses they run. Only 5.00 and drinks/appetizers are included!
It's been a long time since I've done a bridal show! But I'm getting back into the swing of it at this intimate, small town show in Jonesborough on September 10th. Simple Elegance Bridal Show boasts a fashion show and some outstanding vendors. 12-3pm at the Jonesborough Visitors Center.
Class schedule for fall
All classes are posted as Facebook events on the Faces by Ren business page. All details, including pricing and registration information can be found there. Here is a brief synopsis;
Monday, August 14th 6-7:30pm; Basic eye techniques. This is a demonstration style class so you can get a lot of information in a short time! Learn how to blend that perfect crease, get that crisp eyeliner, and feel empowered with your makeup routine.
Sunday, August 27th, 1-5pm Intro to airbrush; Airbrush makeup is one of today's hottest trends. It sounds difficult, but with a bit of instruction you can access this amazing art form. Flawless and long wearing foundation isn't just for pros! No experience needed. Bring your system if you own one. Please let me know if you'd like to use one of my systems. I highly recommend doing so if you aren't sure about investing in an airbrush system but would still like to learn.
Saturday, September 2nd 1-3pm; Color Theory; This is one of the most fun classes! Understanding the relationships between colors can help you make better decisions about makeup and it's uses. Plus, we get to play with pigments and PLAY-DOH. Leave with a better understanding of tints and shades, complimentary and analagous color schemes, and why your eyeshadow turned to mud that one time.
*I will continue to add classes for fall, so please check the FB page often. Thank you!
The Serenity Project
Images are now rolling out monthly through Metavivor Research and Support via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We are thrilled to partner with them to shine a spotlight on people living with Metastatic Breast Cancer and to help share their stories.
Please check out the valuable work that they do, and support in any way you can.
It was an honor to help bring this project to life with their help, and with the incredible talents of Keith Dixon Studios.
Recent bodypainting commission
Teagan Bentley is an amazing ballerina (teaganveganballerina on IG). I was so excited to have her come all the way from the Pacific NW to get painted. What an amazing model!
Limited edition signed prints of "athena revisited" will be available soon. You can email me if you'd like to be placed on an interest list; firstname.lastname@example.org
Please feel free to fill out this brief survey when you have a minute. I value your input and look forward to creating events and classes tailored to this feedback. Thank you so much!
