Floral Painting Retreat

$75.00$299.00

March 14 & 15

10am – 3:30pm

Retreat into an inspiring art studio space for the weekend, and be introduced into the world of floral painting. I can’t think of a better way to spend the weekend than this! We will enjoy good food, new friends, and nothing but time to paint and get inspired! The studio will be filled with fresh flowers that you can use to create your own floral arrangements and compositions for your paintings. Breakfast and Lunch are included in the price of the retreat, so all you have to worry about all day is putting your brush to canvas.

We’ll start off with lessons and exercises designed to loosen you up, and build foundational skills for creating beautiful floral paintings. You will start small, build your confidence with every brush stroke, and work your way to up a larger canvas. We will be working on our final paintings on a deep gallery wrapped canvas for a professional look that will be ready to take home and hang. This retreat is open to anyone, even the absolute beginner, who may not have picked up a paint brush since grade school.
