Be inspired by the beauty of spring flowers! This fun workshop is designed for beginners with a step by step approach will introduce you to the painterly skills associated with learning to work as an artist with acrylic paints on canvas. Examples of floral art will be discussed. The workshop is a good fit for those who are returning to painting after a long absence or beginning painting for the first time. Elizabeth will tailor the instruction to the specific needs of each student. You will gain exposure to new techniques and expand your skills to learn the vocabulary of the artist. The focus will remain on personal growth and expression, as expressed with a concentration on floral painting. Fundamental painting techniques and mediums will be demonstrated and explained. At the end of the workshop there will be a critique to support students in their learning. We will be working from the beauty of real floral still life.
