Students in this 3-week class will explore the endless beauty of sunflowers all while discovering a new world of compositions, color, and design simplification. Students will experiment with a negative painting approach and work with wet-on-wet watercolor technique. They will work with a limited pallet exploring the beauty of variety of floral designs.

Students will:

  • Become aware of the work of famous English master Joanne Boon Thomas.
  • Closely observe nature- focus on subtle changes.
  • Focus down on flower and its details.
  • Use design simplification to depict what is most attractive and dynamic.
  • Effectively use a variety of elements and principles of design.
  • Use a limited color pallet for a more contemplative approach.
