Petals and Paint: A Floral Art Retreat March 24-26
Join me in my studio on the Oregon Coast for three days of color and creativity! We will be immersing ourselves in my favorite subject matter- flowers. Throughout the three days, I will be demonstrating all of my favorite techniques, tips, tricks and materials for creating beautiful and expressive floral paintings. From watercolors to acrylic paint, exploring color, layers, materials and working big and small, we will dive into all things floral. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate artist, you will come away with tons of inspiration and new ideas for creating floral art.
Cost of class includes supplies, lunch and snacks.
I've been teaching art since 2004 and while I have a formal education in Fine Art, I love to break the rules! As a teacher, it's my mission to share simple techniques that artists of any level can use to create bold and colorful art. I also like to cram as much creativity as I possibly can into my classes! My goal is to inspire my students and provide new ideas, techniques, live demonstrations, one on one support and the space to make creative discoveries. One of my favorite parts of teaching live, is the having the time to connect with my students, get to know other creatives and answer questions about art, life and business.
$550.00 early bird special. Includes supplies, lunch and snacks all three days.
Please note- we have limited space available for this retreat, if all spots are filled we will open up a waiting list.
