Beginner’s Watercolor: Florals And Botanicals $48

In Beginner’s Watercolor: Florals and Botanicals, working artist Lana Kohn will teach you how to paint beautiful botanical and floral images using some of her favorite watercolor techniques. You will begin class with a series of short lessons on color, brushes, painting supplies, and basic painting techniques. You will practice color blending, creating gradients, and watercolor washes. Next, you will use these techniques and more to paint one of the simple floral still life tableaus that will be set up in class. Lana will teach you to lay down your composition, determine your color palette, and finally, knock out a few fantastic watercolor paintings using the floral and botanical still life as your subject. And don’t worry... Lana will be there to guide you, answer questions, and help you paint around any creative road blocks! This class will conclude with a lesson on mounting and finishing your new, custom artwork, so that it may be preserved, prominently displayed, and ultimately gushed over by your friends and loved ones!

Supplies Needed: None. However, if you have specific botanical or floral imagery that you would like to try to use as your subject, please feel free to bring it and Lana can help give you some ideas and pointers for painting it!
