Summer Flora - July

Pink and white cosmos

Course Title: Summer Flora

Artist Instructor: Annelein Beukenkamp

Date: Saturday, July 22 and Saturday, August 26, 2023

Time: 10 AM - 4 PM

Cost: $80 / person, per class


Join Burlington artist Annelein Beukenkamp for a full day painting watercolor flowers in the nursery gardens. This class is designed for participants with some previous watercolor experience. We will explore numerous watercolor techniques including negative painting, value control, edges, composition and many others. Painting outside “en plein air” is a great way to observe directly from nature to capture blossoms and blooms in a direct and colorful manner. Annelein will demonstrate her technique in the morning and offer extensive personal attention throughout the day that will end with a group discussion of works created.


Participants will need to bring their own supplies. A suggested supply list will be provided.  The same class is offered on two different dates. Each class is limited to 12 participants.
