Virtually escape to Tuscany for a day of painting colorful poppies. Begin by drawing a poppy with flowing organic lines, then paint it with mingling colors. To complete the scene, learn to paint old stone walls and trees dappled with light. Create drama with light and shadow, and develop a field of poppies drawing freehand or using an instructor-provided tracing. Some previous watercolor experience is useful.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
