April showers bring May flowers and painting flowers is a favorite subject of this instructor. Capture the natural beauty of florals and other still life subjects while working directly from life.  Through carefully prepared exercises and instructor demonstrations, the student will learn to develop their skills – the richness of color and texture of flowers and other still life make for an exciting painting. As with all of Katie’s classes, there will be personal attention to help with each student and weekly critiques with student participation. Maximum of 10 students.
