  • Successfully portray a drawn face (no more wonky eyes!). Jane walks you through the anatomical proportions of the face, and gives advice on what to emphasize.
  • Give your profile an extra pop of personality with tips for adding volume, shading, and emotive elements to the illustrated face.
  • Create a range of face types with confidence thanks to step-by-step approaches to drawing straight forward, turned faces, and profiles.
  • Alternate methods to creating a whimsical face that range from how to draw a face to how to make a stencil (whether of individual features or an entire face) and incorporate it into your artwork.

Indulge in a fun, mixed-media frenzy of color! Jane sums up her imaginative approach best in the opening of her workshop: “Whimsical faces are based on reality, but play with the proportions so they’re a little bit quirky so when you look at them, they’ve got a bit of magic about them.”

Discover your own bit of magic when you treat yourself to The Whimsical Face with Jane Davenport!

I love Jan'es way of teaching .I felt like I was in the room with her. Her knowledge of products and her use of the English language was outstanding <3 Review by sue (Posted on 1/22/2015)
Good afternoon. I Have a QUESTION. I bought whimsical face lesson 2 years ago, but , the file was deleted, ¿What was it that happened? Is imposible to have paid US 29 and it have been deleted the file. Review by Luz stella (Posted on 12/27/2014)
This is SUCH a great teaching video, as are all of Jane's. Not only do I feel I can draw a face (and believe me, I've never drawn before), but her wonderful personality, wisdom and tips just enhance the video more. I love her attitude, and the fact that she breaks it all down is priceless. I'll be downloading any thing she makes available! Review by Jean (Posted on 11/5/2014)
Your awesome Jane!
I love all your art lessons, I had you saved under favorites on my youtube channel. I just took your lesson on faces, and in one night my art work has improved 100%. I can't get enough of your lessons! Review by sandi (Posted on 10/6/2014)

The best lesson I've had in this genre. Plenty of information! Jane's style is contagious, you just can't wait to start and be happy while doing it.
Please make more!!!

A Wonderful Video Lesson
This was my first of Jane's instructional videos, and I was blown away. First of all, her personality just comes bursting through the screen and she puts you at ease.

I was told by my mother when I was in high school that I just wasn't good at art, and I am sad to say that I gave up on fine art at that time. I stopped drawing and painting for decades. I did lots of other creative things, but I found myself unable to paint or draw seriously except for some very short bursts.

But in the past 8 months, I took up the pencil, pen and brush and started working on mixed media paintings and journals and found that yes, yes, I CAN draw.

And with Jane's help, my drawing abilities have improved by leaps and bounds. There is something about her very simple methods of teaching that make it easy for me to absorb her lessons.

Plus, she's obviously, sweet, lovely and kind and loves teaching. That kind of enthusiasm really helps a student learn. I can't suggest her as a teacher highly enough!

Great teaching!
Jane will have you drawing faces, instead of doodling. This video is wonderful! I was smiling as I watched and caught Jane's enthusiasm. She makes creativity sparks fly! I can now draw whimsical faces, when I could not draw before. Grab this video as soon as you can! Review by Linda (Posted on 8/13/2014)
Jane explains what she is doing as she goes through the process. I love her enthusiasm. Review by Carol (Posted on 8/12/2014)
Great instruction
I've never been able to draw a face before. This class of jane's has given me the ability and the confidence to draw faces now. I love her bright colors, and fun whimsical people. You just can't go wrong with jane davenport. Review by Alice (Posted on 8/12/2014)
It's Official! Jane can teach anyone--I mean anyone to create
This is my first experience with Jane, and I purchased Whimsical Faces because it was taught by Jane Davenport and because I loved the faces of her dreamy girls. I had read all of the positive reviews, but I didn't have high hopes--not because of anything Jane did or didn't do, but because I know how I struggle to draw recognizable stick figures.
Still, I was so drawn to the faces, and I have always so desperately wanted to be good at art. (You know how it is, we always want what we don't have, and I wanted to be an artist so desperately because I was so horrifically bad at it.)
Long story short--I followed the utterly delightful video step by step, and I have created my first whimsical darling. She is completely lovely, and what's more, it is just like Jane says in the video, my girl is completely unique. I think that is what means the most to me. I didn't just mimic Jane and create a carbon copy of her girl. No, I created my own face full of whimsy and personality.
Well done, Jane. Well done.
I will purchase every workshop Jane teaches.

Amateurish video, great teacher
Jane is so much fun, and I love her style of teaching. But the camera angles mean that sometimes we're looking at the back of her hand, or at the back of her head. A lot of information is lost because we can't see what she's doing. Please, please improve the cinematography on video lessons! This is my first video purchase from Interweave; I don't want it to be my last. Great content, poor presentation. Review by b (Posted on 4/8/2014)
This was my first DVD I bought from Jane and I tell you what it's awesome, very in-depth, she's a really great teacher I went to her website and started taking other classes I will most likely take all of her classes. She so positive and bubbly I keep making sure I have time in the day to either watch her DVD or draw and happily both. You really can't go wrong with Jane's products and her bubbly self. BUY IT... :0) Review by Blacksheep (Posted on 1/25/2014)
This woman has a gift for teaching drawing to those of us who thought they couldn't learn. This is an awesome DVD. I would highly recommend yo any level of artist. Review by Susan (Posted on 9/20/2013)
Fun Fun Fun
I have really enjoyed 'drawing' again with Jane. This is really a fun workshop and I feel as though I CAN draw. Now I seem to be drawing faces on darn near everything and creating my own 'look'. Jane gives you the freedom to be yourself and not be afraid of drawing. Review by Louise (Posted on 9/4/2013)
Such a joie de vivre!
This is by far one of my favorite videos put out by Interweave Press. The filming was beautifully done, and the instructor has such a joie de vivre that you can't possibly dislike the work and process!

I have purchased quite a few videos from Interweave, and I guess that my only real critique is that I have tried watching this on my IPad as my computer is down and it took literally 9 hours for it to finish loading. It won't load all at once, you have to be playing it for it to actively load. I realize this is more likely an ITunes problem than Interweave, but annoying none the less.

As for Jane and her many faces - keep up the good work! I hope to see more of your classes available through Interweave Press!

Delightful, Inspiring and Fun!
I have had the pleasure of taking many of Jane's online classes and was thrilled to receive this DVD. Jane's teaching style is fun, refreshing and packed with knowledge of technique and supplies. Her sassy colorful style and accent along with her command of language makes it so easy to learn! I always feel so inspired and satisfied, it's like a trip thru the art candy store! I highly recommend this video to anyone who wants to improve their art skills - great for beginners too! Jane is my all time favorite art teacher and inspirational art journaling guru! I feel privileged to have experienced her teaching and positive energy. Don't miss out on this wonderful experience! Jane - I loved your hair style too! Review by Jessica W. (Posted on 8/22/2013)
A really delightful and inspiring tutorial
I am a video junkie and after having watched many people try to teach I have to say Jane is one of the delights out there. Easy to understand, great at demonstrating products and techniques and so inspiring. One of my first thoughts was how my granddaughters would have so much fun doing this. I can't wait to teach this technique to them and get them going on their own art journals. Thank you for the inspiration Jane! Review by Patricia (Posted on 8/1/2013)
I have taken two of Jane's online classes and enjoyed them so much I had to have The Whimsical Face DVD. Jane's classes are so much fun and her mixed media techniques are awesome. I am amazed at how much my face drawings and paintings have improved and I have Jane to thank for that. I highly recommend The Whimsical Face. Review by Lynne (Posted on 7/25/2013)
So much fun!
I've just completed working through "The Whimsical Face" and I loved it. I've been doing art work for years but haven't had so much fun learning about someone else's techniques. Jane is always smiling and joking around, but her lessons are spot on. Even a beginner should feel comfortable following her easy steps and everyone should enjoy her soft and quirky personality. If you need a new art lesson pick-me-up, go for this one! Review by Janice (Posted on 7/5/2013)
Five Star
I have taken many of Jane's classes both online and in person and she is such a caring teacher and really helps you to understand what makes a pretty face. I am only five minutes in to the the video but had to stop and write a review to say "buy it now" this is the first class of Jane's that I have been able to download and it is just like having her here in my art room teaching me. Love Love Love it. Next we just need a book happy happy art day for me. Review by Heidy (Posted on 6/7/2013)
