Learn to Paint Fantastic Florals

Every Child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up," Pablo Picasso

Have fun, in this loose, relaxing environment where we explore the relationships between colours, how they interact with each other, and how to bring light to your work.  The emphasis on this workshop is to explore your creative side working from intuition and play, to help discover your own unique personal painting style and flare.  Because this is a one day only workshop, the format will be a teacher’s demonstration, followed by with lots of time to practice painting, with instructor guidance and support. 

Previous painting experience is strongly encouraged,
