NEW CLASS ! Modern Expressive Flowers
Take Your Art to the Next Level with PANTING FLOWERS!
I am so excited to share this new course with you!!! After painting over 45 different flowers for my forthcoming Flower Medicine Oracle Deck and then translating that experience to new, expressive mixed media work, I realized how healing and creatively inspiring it was to paint these blooms. I want you share this experience with you, and so I've created this new course!
About the Class
Class begins on September 21 and ends on October 26, 2020
This 5-week class will be taught on my platform - Ruzuku. Each week will begin with a live overview and q & a about the lessons ahead followed by a week of go-at-your-own-pace pre-recorded video tutorials. During the live meetings you will have a chance to chat with me & your classmates from around the world (these, too, will be recorded so that you access them later). For the rest of the week, you can learn and practice each new lesson at your own pace. All of the painting lessons are pre-recorded and available to download and keep forever.
What You'll Learn
Drawing Flowers with Ease (and without overwhelm)
Painting Flowers and Giving them Dimension with COLOR and LINE
How to Paint Expressive Backgrounds in warm and cool harmonious palettes
How to Collage Expressive Backgrounds
How to put all of these skills together - Drawing, Painting and Collage to create your own modern expressive flower paintings.
Throughout the class, I'll emphasize how to achieve color harmony and pleasing compositions in your flower paintings and beyond.
The course includes over 17 pre-recorded video tutorials that you download to keep, re-watch and learn from at your own pace. The live events will not be instructional -- they will be overviews of the week's lessons ahead, and they will also be recorded if you cannot attend.
3 Finished Paintings -- you will walk away from this course with 3 finished mixed media paintings that you can hang on the wall or give as gifts (or sell!)
Gorgeous Reference Photos (I will provide beautiful reference photos for each project and video tutorial. You may always use your own photos or live flowers, too)
Shared Color Palette (So that you can truly follow along with me, all of the paintings will be done with 7 core colors plus white, gray, titan buff and black, For a low-budget alternative, I also show you how to substitute the colors you have at home already to get similar results).
Community- Building Platform (I use Ruzuku so that we can share our work in our own private classroom AND chat live with one another for weekly check-in.
JOIN ME! Let's paint together!
