FRIDAY, NOV. 5, 2021 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM EST (East Coast United States)



The Triangle (or Wedge) Brush has become my favorite tool for graceful florals because they complement pointed pen work so well. In this class, we will learn how to use it to achieve graceful leaf shapes, and petal shapes. With these shapes, we will design festive, bright poinsettias and leaves. Using a small, round brush, we will add pine and other greenery.

With these holiday blooms, we will design beautiful wreaths and garlands, adding touches of gold and silver to add a little shine. 


The class will be two 2-hour sessions on THURSDAY, NOV. 4 AND FRIDAY, NOV. 5.

Following the class, 30 minutes will be available for review and questions.

You must load Zoom on your computer, please email me if you need help setting this up.
