FULL BLOOM

Mix Media class in Portraits, Abstract Figures and Art Journaling

Through out history flowers have been inspiring artists, designers, poets and writers for centuries. Monet's water lilies, Van Gogh's sunflowers, Dior's couture gowns, even Grimm's Fairy Tales. Flowers can be represented literally or used as metaphors for beauty, brevity and life itself.

Full Bloom is an online mix media course where we celebrate the enchanting world of flowers. They will inspire us to create beautifully textured backgrounds, luminous portraits, and abstract figures while developing a rich creative practice.  The class will be taught online and you will be able to access it anytime that is convenient for you.

In this course I will share my artistic process along with many of the elements that I love to incorporate into art. We will experiment with beautiful supplies like  charcoal, graphite, pastels, oil pastels, acrylics, vintage ephemera and collage elements. We will venture outside our studios and homes in search of a fresh perspective for our art. Gather together ideas, words, books, images and more to invite new ideas and nurture that all important spark. I will open my Art Journals and share how I devote myself to a subject and how everything is relevant. 

I believe that if we embrace practice and devote ourselves to a subject, then inspiration will reveal itself and so will the soul of our art. Join me on a journey that will fill your heart and have your mind overflowing with possibilities. 

This course is for anyone who wants to be open to developing a beautiful creative practice. Whether you're just beginning your creative journey or in need of inspiration, I invite you to join me and together we will create art that we are meant to create.
