This is a class for adults and teens 13 and up. Here you will learn to draw and paint beautiful flowers as well as learn some basic gouache techniques. The instructor will provide a demonstration, step-by-step directions, and will circulate and offer one-on-one help while you paint. In this class, the goal is for you to be gently introduced to the great world of gouache. Gentle constructive criticism will help you grow as an artist and art viewer. The instructor will provide either live flowers or a photo for the subject matter.

There is an attached supply list; however, for a $30.00 material fee, all the supplies will be provided for you (payments accepted are cash, check (made out to the instructor), and Zelle).

I've spent the majority of my life in the Atlanta Metro area. One of my earliest memories is seeing the King Tutankhamun exhibit when it toured the U.S. back in the eighties. I have enjoyed art all of my life, and I love traveling to paint and see the works of other artists. Right now, my goal is to paint at McMurdo research station in Antarctica.

I graduated from Georgia College & State University with an undergraduate degree in art in 2003 and a master's degree in secondary education in 2008. Now I'm combining my two loves, teaching and art, by becoming an instructor at Spruill in 2022.

I'm a colorist, and I'm primarily interested in vibrancy of hue and texture. I work in a number of different mediums including: watercolor, acrylic, alcohol markers, oils, pastels, and more. I like to explore and mix mediums as well. My favorite subjects are birds and flowers. My favorite artist is Eugene Delacroix, a 19th century French romanticist painter.

Fun fact about me: I studied watercolors in Paris, France during university.
