Flowers in Still Lives
Updated: Apr 20
To celebrate this spring, we have dedicated this ti to teach our young artists techniques inspired by flowers. We will be covering a variety of techniques to guide our young artists in their observation of flowers. We want to emphasize the importance of small details, like the wrinkles in the petals, as well as the big picture composition.

It is tradition in academies that artists develop their observational and composition skills through still lives. We love sharing with our young artists the importance of still lives! These still lives are curated inanimate objects. One of our favorite ways to build a still life is through incorporating flowers.

All throughout history, artists have been inspired by flowers! Our classes are built on the importance of art history and exploration of various techniques. Your young artist can join us at our studio to develop their artistic skills too! Come join us explore the world of painting and drawing flowers.
