Botanical Impressions 2-Day Workshop



With clay and paint we'll capture the line work and designs of botanical images as we study flowers and plants. No drawing skills are necessary as I teach you easy ways to capture the beauty of nature with images from my sketchbook. 

In this class we'll cover step-by-step on how to create the dahlia flower design, forget-me-knots, foxgloves and cactus. I'll cover in-depth painting and color tips for professional results and jewelry design ideas featuring our components. 

Class materials will be presented in a series of videos and a PDF workbook.

This class is for all skill levels - from complete beginners to clay addicts!
