In this all-day workshop, you will have the opportunity to paint from live flowers and plants. Various options for your floral paintings will be discussed. You may bring the medium of your choice. For example, if you love acrylic, bring your acrylics, brushes, and canvas. You will begin with sketches of various floral forms and end up painting great blooms! Judith is an avid gardener/painter with a great deal of passion about this subject matter. Come enjoy the day and perhaps discover a new passion!
