A flower painting course designed for both beginners and beyond to gently inspire a contemporary approach to the art of depicting flowers.


Working from different weekly still life set ups in the studio the emphasis this term will be on creating interesting, balanced compositions on which to base a painting together with a sensitive use of colour to enhance and enrich the images.

Employing a variety of different painting techniques invites a freshness to the creative process and resulting paintings.

Suitable for all levels. Beginners welcome.
