Flowers, Cactus & Plants Watercolor Workshop with Teresa Cook
Saturday 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
November 6
Beginning - Intermediate
Who does not like flowers, cactus and plants??!!
In this workshop you will learn how to use pen to draw what you see with a method called “blind contour drawing”, then add your watercolor. You will be able to create the cactus or plants the way you see in an abstract style.
We will discuss the importance of developing the technique of “blind contour”, with the pen or pencil  and adding the watercolor to make your own style. We will also use different types of paper to see the effects of blind contour drawing on them. It’s a fun way for you to create what you see in an abstract way.
Plus, we will all be framing our favorite piece to take home for everyone to see.
