Vibrant splashes of red! Crisp notes of green! Glowing bursts of golden yellow! The Heliconia is simply one of the most dynamic blooms to paint and draw from.
Join fellow artists as we explore our garden to study and capture these tropical gems under the guidance of Carlos Gallostra. Using references taken from choice areas in our garden, we’ll take these back to the studio where you will be able to develop a dynamic illustrative work in watercolor, color pencils, or mixtures of both. All levels are welcomed!
The program fee does not include materials. Please view the syllabus with the complete list of required and suggested supplies here.
