In this class, we will layer and mix colors to create soft, transparent petals, as well as capture the sturdiness and variety of color found in a stem. The class will be filled with creative exercises to keep your color vibrant and loose. As always, there will be a demonstration as a new concept is introduced. Be prepared to paint a lot in this class.
