Jennifer Mercede – Expressive Floral Play
Duration of Class: One Day (6 Hours) // Medium: Drawing + Painting // Skill Level: All
In this expressive painting & drawing class, we will focus on florals – let’s get wild with them! Using beautiful flowers as our inspiration, we’ll create art that combines abstract, expressive drawing and painting techniques. You can expect to spend lots of time looking, like really looking, at the flowers and drawing what you see.
Through various guided activities, we will play with mark making exercises to get you creating outside the box and letting go of the outcome. Learn to be expressive with your strokes. Experiment and let your intuition guide your artistic choices as we create. In this class you have permission to play!
All three of my classes will be unique experiences, with a few overlapping ideas and activities. If you are so inclined, feel free to take Doodle Draw Paint, as well as Expressive Floral Play and Spirit Portraits. The fundamentals from Day One will be a great resource as we explore Day Two and Day Three, though definitely not necessary.
I work and teach very organically, so be prepared to go with the flow!
My classes focus on process. While you may walk away with a piece of art ready to hang on your wall, you may also walk away with a few pieces started & ready to inspire many more hours of creating.
