Join Melanie for a fun workshop that will help you create fresher and more intuitive acrylic paintings without fear.  The class will paint from life so each student will choose a floral from a number of arrangements that will be provided.  Melanie will start the class by walking students through how to create a successful floral painting – from composition to color mixing.  The class will then paint a series of timed, small paintings with individual instruction.  Melanie will start each timed painting with a demo so there will be numerous demos each day.  Students love this class and are often surprised to find their favorite paintings are the ones they created in the shortest amount of time.  On the second day, the class will pick different floral arrangements and create more quick paintings.  If you want to create looser florals, this is the class for you.  This class is appropriate for all levels – from beginner to advanced.

Melanie’s workshop helped me so much with organizing my thoughts and color which makes my art process so much more enjoyable and relaxed. Pamela- Atlanta, GA

I came to Melanie’s class with hopes of breaking some bad habits and learning some ways to paint faster.  I came away with much more; including a greater sense of color theory which has been very beneficial to me.  After not selling artwork for many months my paintings are now selling again!
