WORKSHOP: Abstract Floral Painting With Kristen Coates

Date: Sunday, February 12 at 3:00pm

Price: $50

Materials: Provided

Instructor: Kristen Coates

Class Description: Using acrylic paintings and the aid of a color wheel, Kristen Coates will share her basic techniques in painting floral abstracts from still life and memory. We will learn how to add color, organic shapes and patterns to canvas to create the sense of a lush bouquet in a fun vase.   

Each student will take home their own painting and packet of printed materials for future inspiration and enjoy refreshments during the class and 20% off all regularly priced items in the store (discount does not apply to art). 

The artist: Kristen is an art enthusiast with a passion for curating all things in life. Her gallery in downtown Newport is where she spends most of her time hanging art, working with clients and bringing new products and inspiration to the city by the sea. 

Class is limited to 6 students. Advance purchase is recommended. Session expected to be about 3 hours. $50 all inclusive. Sign up here.
