"New Directions in Floral Painting"

Saying something new about flowers in an effective way,  will be the focus of our studies and experimentation in this workshop. In renewing and refreshing each student's presentation of this universally inviting subject, we'll explore color possibilities, compositional elements, point-of-view, stylistic treatment, and contemporary ideas. Slides, demos, artist's tips, critiques, and individual assistance, will contribute to each student's path of personal discovery. Sessions  will find us  working from fresh flowers, artificial blooms, photo references, and painting in a local garden, greenhouse, or florist, as availability  allows.
