Join us as we embrace the wild freedom of summer with colorful abstract blooms! These gestural, playful florals will be created with acrylic paints on canvas.
Using an intuitive approach, Jennifer will guide you as you create layered floral abstractions. After some sketching, we will practice staying loose and bringing wild blooms to life on our canvases.
Join us as we explore:
If you want to paint a one-dimensional still life floral, this is not for you. If you love artwork with energy, movement and loose lines, this workshop is perfect for you!
Students will walk away with a completed 16x20 canvas painting.
about the instructor
California native, Jennifer McHugh, is an abstract artist who captures the moments, stories and nuances of the everyday, and brings them to life through a visual narrative. Her work is created intuitively, through many layers of acrylic paints, chalk, pencil, oil pastels, and other mixed media. Largely self-taught, Jennifer has explored many styles to help her evolve as an artist, but her work is always process-driven. Guided by spontaneity, she translates her inspiration without any idea of what the final product will be.
Jennifer creates in her backyard studio in San Diego, CA, where she lives with her husband and two children. Her work is sold in galleries and boutiques in San Diego & California, and hangs in homes all over the U.S. and overseas. She also teaches workshops in her studio, local venues and as part of an artist collective that works with hotels and large corporations.
