Ahhh … there is nothing more heavenly than the scent of lilacs on the spring air! And the fleeting beauty of these gorgeous flowers really lends itself to being captured eternally in paint on canvas. Is it any wonder they were a favourite subject for impressionist painters to work with?

In this workshop we will take an impressionistic approach to painting lilac blooms that allows for lots of interpretation and self-expression but will also let you learn some basic skills and principles of acrylic painting, especially if you are new to it. Using fun techniques such as “pointillism”, “daubing” and a palette knife, I will guide you in mixing colours and bringing to life a bouquet of beauty on your canvas.

This is a fun, interactive workshop suited to anyone, even if you are a complete beginner. All materials are supplied for your use during the workshop, allowing you to relax and fully enjoy the process in the calm ambience of my nature-filled studio. By the end of the workshop you will have your own unique, ready-to-hang art piece, plus the skills to continue making your own impressionistic creations.

Fee includes all materials. This is an in-person workshop limited to only 5 participants which means you get lots of one-on-one help.

Any questions can be emailed to artist@dancingmoondesigns.ca
