Have you ever received a “grocery store” bouquet of flowers from a loved one and not known how to arrange them when you got home? Ever stared at murky, brown water in a vase as your floral arrangement withered in front of you? Spent hours pouring over Pinterest and Instagram looking for floral inspiration to use in your paintings?

If you said yes to any of the above, this is the class for you! We will cover all the supplies and techniques you need to care for and arrange cut flowers - whether they come from your garden, the farmers market, or the grocery store! As an added bonus, we will discuss and practice how to use our arrangements to inspire our own paintings, as well as how to compose a modern, loose floral painting. We will end our course by talking about the practical ways to incorporate our arrangements and paintings into everyday life.

The floral care and arrangement portion of this class is ideal for beginners, though intermediate “flower enthusiasts” may find some new useful tips & tricks.

The painting portion of this class is geared toward intermediate watercolor painters and will focus on composition. It is not a “how-to paint watercolor flowers” instruction (but don’t fret - that class is coming later this year!).
