We’ll paint brilliant florals on Days 1&2, and on Day 3, we will finish with paintings of French landscapes, working from my photos or any of your own favorite landscape photos. There will be prizes, snacks, fresh flowers, and a bit of holiday festivity in the air. What a tres chic way to ring in the holidays, no?
Put a little joy in your brush and join award winning artist Nancy Medina for three days of making brilliant landscapes and florals bloom in oils. Named one of the best floral and botanical artists by American Art Collector magazine, Nancy is master signature artist and instructor for the Dallas Arboretum whose paintings are collected around the world. Open for beginners to advanced students, as well as those who work in water based oils and acrylics, you will learn to loosen your approach to painting. This will be a fun 3-day workshop with multiple demonstrations by the teacher.
Nancy shares all her favorite tips with you for creating brilliant color on a transparent background, and methods for making your paintings look authentic and beautiful. Students are encouraged to take lots of photos and ask many questions, and will take home the tools needed to create works of art they will enjoy for years to come.
Class begins each day with a thorough and well explained demonstration by the instructor. Painting together each afternoon in step by step lessons, students will take home three completed paintings. A supply list will be shared with students immediately following registration.
