About The Workshop:
Have you ever stood in front of a painting, taken by its visual power and yet absolutely bewildered by its meaning?
As we adapt our pastimes to a new setting and welcome a slower pace of life, appreciating nature in the moment can be beneficial, not only for the environment around us, but for our mental health as well. One way to appreciate nature on a different level is to sit with it and start painting it! While you may only need to place a plant on the windowsill at home to help create a more soothing and optimistic environment, you can increase happy feelings even more through painting botanical art. Unwind with us and paint along colorful "leaves" without thinking about anything else. Let us paint to relax and for stress relief, see it as a painting meditation.
Learn how to paint these adorable botanical patterns in watercolor. The beauty of this medium is learning to balance the control and freedom of the fluid which is water. The artist will start with some basic theory about water, colours and how they come together. The later and larger part of the workshop will be hands on with a lot of practice on basic techniques, botanical patterns and painting your final masterpiece.
Come along and grab those paint brushes and let's paint together!
