Use a hot summer palette of pinks, yellows, and lime greens to create a Warhol-inspired graphical painting of flowers.
In 1964, pop artist Andy Warhol created a series of flower paintings using his signature bright colors and graphic style. This class will begin by viewing Warhol’s body of work on flowers to inspire creativity and consider how the artist approached flowers in a fresh way.
After practicing composition techniques and experimenting with colors, participants will dive in and create their own Warhol-esque flower painting, working from reference photos and plant specimens. The instructor will guide you through the process of tools, techniques, and color mixing with acrylics as you work.
Appropriate for any level of artist, this evening art class will provide a fun exploration of Warhol’s work, with plenty of support from the instructor. All supplies included. Take home a finished painting and be inspired to see flowers in a new way.
This program meets in person at the Arboretum. No prior art experience is required.
