Succulents & Cacti Acrylic Workshop with Jennifer Keller

Beginner and intermediate artists welcome!

Flowers and succulents add life and beauty to their surroundings and the people who view them. Painting them is a practice that many artists crave, yet it can be a challenge if you're not sure how to approach them. In this workshop, you'll gain confidence in your botanical power whether you're painting a single cactus, a succulent bouquet, a garden, or simply embellishing your other paintings.

In this workshop, you'll learn how to:

  • Mix and blend colors to avoid muddy paintings.

  • Achieve rich shadows and brilliant highlights to create a 3-D look.

  • Layer acrylic paint to create free, loose brush strokes and depth.

  • Create the right proportions so that you don't wind up with awkward compositions.

  • Familiarize yourself with the feel and properties of acrylic paint - a wonderful entry-level medium that you can grow with.

During this workshop, you'll enjoy painting demonstrations, personalized coaching, group discussions, and plenty of painting time to create magical succulents and cacti. You've been meaning to learn, now's your chance!

Jennifer will provide paint, pallets, water containers, 11 x 14" canvas panels, and towels. Please bring brushes: Flat #2, 6, 10. You may also bring your other favorite brushes.
