In this two (2) day weekend Live Class, guest instructor Louise Gasca will teach you how to recognize and draw tattoo designs in the American Traditional style.
American traditional tattoos, also known as “old school” tattoos, are characterized by their clean black outlines, vivid colors, and minimal shading. It is also one of the most popular tattooing styles today.
Flash sheets play an important role in the tattoo industry. They serve both as a menu for potential clients, as well as a showcase of your artistic abilities. Whether you want to learn how to design your own tattoos, or you are thinking of becoming a tattoo artist, this Live Class provides you with the solid foundation you need to be successful.
At the end of this class, you will have learned about the history of Tattooing, how to design American Traditional tattoos, what makes a tattoo-able design, how to put together tattoo flash sheets, how to make clean line work, shading techniques, developing color palettes, and more.
