Healing Herbs: Panting Helpful Plants

From the kitchen to the garden to the medicine chest, herbs bring a world of wonder into our lives. They offer us aromatic fragrances and tastes, beautiful flowers, healing powers, and they attract pollinators and butterflies too!

In this class we will learn to paint Parsley, Lavender, and Sage. You can paint from life or from a picture as you begin to creatively connect with these garden herbs. You'll also learn a bit about some traditional uses of these herbs for adding boosts of nature health to everyday life.

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!
