WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP FUN
Photography by the lovely Monica Mae
Painting summer treats, sipping on pineapple iced tea and catching up with girlfriends... Nothing beats that!
Here's a little recap of my first watercolor workshop with The Bloguettes in their brand new studio.
All the decor was kept very simple. Little pops of turquoise and gold washi tape along with fresh blooms from The Florette were the perfect way to make our space colorful and manageable. We mixed clear mason jars with different sized glasses to create different sized heights for the floral arrangements. Jenna who is the creator and founder of The Florette did an incredible job tying in her floral artistry with my wash tape by creating a beautiful floral wall. It was the perfect place for guests to take pictures.
Two hours of class requires something light and refreshing. Allison of Teaspressa created a custom pineapple iced tea for my guests that was just perfect!
When planning my class, I wanted to insure that both artists and people with no experience in watercolor could walk away with something they were proud of. I briefly went over some simple watercolor technique, and made it more about having fun and experimenting with watercolors. My motto: If you mess up, let's start over! I provided stencils for the pineapple and popsicles, making it easy to nail the right size and shape. I can honestly say that all 40 attendees walked away with paintings that I would frame in my home.
