Wildflowers, Bees & Bugs

Winslow Art Center - Online

Wednesdays, April 17-May 1, 2024; 10AM - 12PM Pacific Time

Critique Sessions: Tuesdays, April 23 - May 7, 2024; 1pm Pacific Time

One of the greatest joys of spring into summer is to wander about a wildflower meadow, enjoy the sun, listening to bees and bugs going about their jobs. Let’s capture those moments in watercolor; lavender, sweet peas, sunflowers, bees, dragonflies and more will be explored in a loose, organic style. Lecture, demonstrations and in class participation along with separate critique sessions will aide in developing mastery as we spring into Spring.
