Feeling floral? This class is for you! Donna Ebert specializes in decorative painting and can coach anyone through the process of creating a beautiful floral image.  

Learn techniques that will enhance your painting abilities, such as how to quickly block in your background, how to loosen up and enjoy the process, and how to use many types of paint brushes to get exactly the mark you are looking for. Donna will demonstrate easy techniques such as how to create foliage using special brushes, sea sponges, and paper towels. Glazing techniques, highlighting techniques, "negative painting," and how to use the color wheel to create pleasing color harmonies will also be demonstrated.

Donna promises to make it "easy-peasy." All materials and step-by-step instructions will be provided. Wear comfortable old clothing, something you won’t mind if a little paint happens to jump on. 

We will be using acrylic paints on a 16 x 20 canvas. Some students may finish a bit faster than the posted class ending time depending on how many flowers and how much detail is added.

Testimonial from Jules Webster, Proprietor of Art Supply Depo:
"I took this class in our Toledo location and was highly impressed. I have been painting for over 10 years in both a tight realistic style on canvas, and in a more "decorative" manner on ceramic pottery. Even though I consider myself an experienced painter, Donna helped me to loosen up and get re-inspired to paint every day, which I haven't been able to do in years. I was previously afraid to make a mistake and it was always hard to get started when staring at a blank canvas. Donna's class reminded me to seek out the pure joy of putting paint on a surface and to never be afraid, as art is always supposed to be fun, and not scary. I recommend this class to anyone and everyone who is looking to start painting, or to re-discover the joy in creating on canvas. Artists of any skill level will also enjoy Donna's simplified approach to using color theory to make a more powerful, compelling, and beautiful image."
