Creativity Circle: Floral Painting with Paint & Petals

Join us for an opportunity to explore your creativity in community! The Creativity Circle, held the first Thursday of every month, features guest creatives, artists, writers, designers, and makers who will inspire you to explore your inner artist within the walls of The Hivery's Creative Studio. This month, we're thrilled to welcome artist and textile designer Bridgette Thornton of Paint & Petals.

In this creative session, Bridgette will be providing materials and painting techniques to assist attendees in creating custom art. 

With each boldly hued petal and bursting bloom, Bridgette engages in playful exploration of the relationship between depth and color. Her subjects, whether arranged in a vase or sprouting in a field, take on the organic vibrancy typically reserved for things found only in the natural world.

Attendees of this workshop will be able to create still life paintings by looking directly at fresh floral arrangements or by adding their own unique twist to one of my pre-painted designs.

Key takeaways from this workshop will include:

  • Learn how to paint a floral repeating pattern (print design)

  • Learn how to create a painting from looking at a floral still life

  • Each participant will leave the workshop with two or three completed floral paintings. 

As seats are limited (15 people for this workshop), advance online registration is required. Free for members. $30 for non-members. All are welcome!
