Botanical Garden Art Series: Learn to paint flowers


  • Friday, April 5, 2019 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Due to popular demand, we've added a second class!

Learn three main watercolor techniques that will allow you to build up a flower’s 3-D form; creating subtle washes, lifting paint, and adding dry details. The artist will introduce basics materials and demonstrate how to create depth and detail that helps the flower look realistic. Create a beautiful botanically inspired watercolor painting to take home. 

Register by Friday, March 29. Cost is $15.
