Instructor: Sarah Kinn

 *This class will be held at The New Local Annex, 713 Pearl St. 

Join Sarah Kinn to learn step-by-step acrylic techniques to create a beautiful, graphic, spring flower painting. In the first part of this workshop, we build layers upon layers to create a background with lots of depth incorporating stencils, stamps, medium, spray bottles, collage items, hand drawn designs, mark making, etc. - sky is the limit.  While canvases are drying, students practice sketching flowers from life or photos to use on top of backgrounds.  The final step of this workshop is painting the flower on top of our background while learning color mixing techniques, color theory, negative space, use of masking tape, etc.  All levels welcome.
