Mixed Media Painting Workshops

with Kellie Day

Painting the Essence of Flowers – mixed media workshop in a private artist gardens

In this completely unique art workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to paint in the lush & colorful gardens of artist Shirley Novak. We'll spend our mornings in the garden with our art journals (all materials will be supplied), and learn about capturing the essence of flowers. After a refreshing lunch break in the gardens, we'll head into the new studio building on the grounds to turn our mornings sketches into free and expressive mixed media paintings. I'll take you through creating whimsical, loose layouts on your canvas, playing with collage elements, and then combining it all with paint to capture the essence of your flower painting.
