Flower Power

This is a series of classes that are inspired by flowers.  Spend Friday afternoons creating gorgeous pieces of art work in different medias that take you inside flowers! Beginning with large and loose, we'll create a watercolor floral still life, explore blind contour drawings of flowers on experimental watercolor backgrounds, and dive into the center of flowers following Georgia O'Keefe's lead with tempera paints.  As always, no experience needed!

Textured Abstractions

We will use a trick to create a textured interpretation of an abstract piece of art using plaster and wood followed by acrylic paint tricks.  These pieces will look and feel intricate but the process is a fun one to learn!
