painting workshop:
IMPRESSIONIST FLOWERS

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul. —Luther Burbank

Create a beautiful Impressionist flower bouquet using vivid, professional 4Cats artist acrylics on unstretched 17″×34″ canvas.

PAINTING INFO
Painting
In our beautiful studios, classes introduce students to fun, skill-building projects using professional art materials and tools.

Students learn to plan and work step-by-step to express themselves. They’ll create layered compositions using professional art supplies such as acrylics, paint pens, etching tools, ink and more.

Canvas Stretching
Some canvas projects are created on 100% unstretched cotton canvas, included in the prices of the class/workshop. Stretching options are available for an additional charge.

At 4Cats, we stretch your artwork gallery-wrap style on 1.5″ deep stretcher bars. With a gallery-wrap, the artwork is wrapped around the sides of the frame and stapled on the back. This means no frame is required, it’s ready to hang!

Upgrade to canvas stretch can be purchased in studio.
