Painting from the heart and loosening up are fundamentals of this class. We work fast and loose, layering our canvas with color, blocking in shapes, and adding definition to create a beautiful masterpieces. I want to introduce you to the fun of paint, we will use spray bottles and drip, splat, brush, even use our hands to create magic. We work on several canvases at a time, producing much work. The more you make, the better the results.
Flowers are my favorite thing to paint, they are so beautiful, uplifting and romantic. Even people who have NEVER painted before walk away from my class happy, it is a guaranteed good time. The magic ingredient to learning is having fun! I play fun music to warm us up, 15 minute warm up paintings to keep things loose, and rotating canvases gives you the ability to always work on a dry painting. While one is drying another is ready, you can produce MANY paintings in one session.
The joy of using our hands is a tactile yearning we all need in our lives. I teach the basics of how to use a dry brush to create dreamy backgrounds, how to layer using fingers and when to use water until you get depth. The magical Stabilo pencil is everyone favorite tool, we draw stems which anchor our flowers to the painting. The splatter is the finale, everyone’s favorite part.
Come sling some paint, create something beautiful, dance and HAVE FUN in my class! You will leave with gorgeous paintings to hang in your home or give for amazing gifts.
