About This Class


In this fun and easy design class, I will share with you how I draw my geometric style of flowers using my popular basic shapes method of drawing.  We will explore the many different varieties of flower designs we can create with just a few basic shapes.

Starting with petal shapes and then moving on to petal sizes, petal fills, center fills and then we will combine all these ideas to come up with layered flower styles.  We will also explore the fun to draw rosette flower design.

Our class project will be to take a square frame and fill it with our flower creations.  By the end of this class you will have more ideas than you can imagine for floral designs, all from very basic shapes.  

I provide you with step by step on how to use the shapes and each lesson has a corresponding worksheet for you to follow along.  I have provided the framework for your project as well as my own finished version of the project so that you can use it for inspiration.
