Botanic Watercolor Workshop - August 10

Regular price $75

Join Polly Jiménez for a plant-themed watercolor workshop while she's visiting Chicago from Mexico City!

 If you love plants, flowers, and painting this workshop is for you!

Join us for a lovely watercolor class, no experience is required and supplies will be provided. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic techniques of watercolor, drawing tricks, and how to maximize your art supplies to create botanical compositions by just knowing how to use your brush. We’ll talk about color theory to understand how to create your own harmonic color schemes.

Polly Jiménez has 11 years of experience in watercolor and 7 years of teaching diverse types of audiences. You will learn watercolor from an experienced artist whose trajectory goes from illustrating children’s books and painting murals, to exhibiting in galleries like Vertical Gallery and Line Dot Gallery. See more of Polly's work at @pollyshortstories and shortstoriesstudio.com.
