VIRTUAL: In Celebration of Flowers

Susan Giannantonio

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday

April 22, 23, 24
10:00am - 3:00pm Central Time (includes a break for lunch)

$170 members/$200 non-members

Approach flowers, plants, stems, and plant materials in new and unique ways to investigate their shapes, textures, and forms. By using our tools and exploring new ways to create marks and textures, we will lead the viewer’s eyes straight into and through the plants, hopefully to experience their very nature at eye-level.

This class is for artists who have some familiarity with whatever medium(s) you enjoy using. Watercolor and/or acrylic and/or other media are welcome. Prior to class, artists are asked to prepare plants, flowers, vases and create a still life to be used for the 3 days. We will draw (see important supply list) each morning, break for lunch, and return to paint in the afternoon.

This class is immersive and geared to help the artist develop their own “voice,”whether realistic, semi abstract, or abstracted to the point of non-objective. There is no right or wrong -- you discover your own path.

Links to a video recording of each session will be provided, should you miss a class or want to review a session. Links remain available for 

​120 days.
