• Introduction-Intermediate
  • Painting

In this course, students will learn how to capture the beauty of a flower in paint. We will explore the fundamentals of flower painting including drawing, value, colour and edges and how to create interesting compositions. Students will work from life and photographs and will have a variety of short and long sessions with the flowers. Students are encouraged to apply the ideas and principles of the course to their own style, process and approach. Teaching is a combination of group lesson and demonstration, image discussion and one-on-one feedback. Individual student goals will be a focus.
