Project Description

This class is very project oriented! Your goal is to complete all 7 days of floral paintings, with your own spin and style to your illustrations. Of course 7 days in a row is ideal to keep yourself in the groove, but you are welcome to come back and finish days at different times. When you are finished, upload photos or scans of each of your 7 floral illustrations. If you aren’t comfortable sharing all 7, just pick your favorites!

Plus. see the attached file for an additional 7 day floral prompt to expand your challenge!

Share your illustrations on Instagram with us by using the class hashtag #expressivefloralschallenge and I will be sharing your work on my Instagram stories!
