We'll meet up at a local favorite on Las Olas Boulevard, Ann's Florist, Coffee & Wine Bar. Yes, you can enjoy coffee, tea or wine here! And they serve croissants and other goodies too. We'll spend our time together painting the beautiful flowers at Ann's Florist. If you've been wanting to explore your inner Georgia O'Keefe or Vincent Van Gough, now's your chance! No painting by numbers here. I will show you how artists create their masterpieces from beginning to end. We'll be painting with gouache, which is a lot like watercolor except it dries opaque. It's a versatile medium and easy to clean up. I'll supply the paints, brushes and sketchbooks, and when we're done, you'll leave with your flower painting in your new sketchbook. Beginners are welcome!
