Description

Join this full-day floral painting workshop held at Boerma Instituut International Floral Design School, located in Aalsmeer, just outside of Amsterdam.

The workshop begins with a professional flower design demonstration from the experts at Boerma Instituut who will create a floral still life which will be our painting subject for the day. Professional artist and flower painter Sandra Iafrate will be your painting instructor. Sandra will teach participants how to approach creating a good composition, from drawing to colour mixing and brush stroke techniques as we capture the floral and foliage on canvas. All levels are welcome working in oil or acrylic paint. Professional quality paints and mediums will be available and included in registration fee. Participants are asked to bring a canvas of medium size (16"x20" is ideal!) and a variety of paint brushes. If you are traveling and do not have access to materials, please let us know and we can provide for you for a small fee. All levels of painting skills are welcome. Space is limited in this fun and creative workshop so please register early to get a booking discount!
