About This Class

Fun and Grumpy? Yes! Learn to paint flowers with grumpy faces for a creative way to let go of moods through art!

You will learn to paint a rose and a coneflower with grumpy little faces that will make you laugh! 

This idea came about because one day I felt grumpy, as we all do sometimes, and a friend said "I bet when you are grumpy you paint grumpy flowers" - well I'd never done that, but thought it sounded like a good attempt at moving beyond my grumps, so I tried it. It worked great! It was fun and when I was done I wasn't grumpy at all anymore! 

Art and nature are great ways to relieve stress, so painting some nature that expresses your mood is a fantastic way to de-stress & de-grump on those kind of days!

This was a really fun way to just practice and have something silly when it was done! I also love the tips and tricks for thinking about painting in real likeness to the flowers.

I really love the playfulness and fun this class brings to watercolor.
