May is my celebration month. There is mother’s day, my birthday, the arrival of spring flowers, the end of the school year… so much to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate than with a few hours dedicated to the appreciation of the beauty and deliciousness of cupcakes! Inspired by the work of Wayne Thiebaud we will use thick acrylic paint to contrast the shape, color and texture of a cupcake with a simple background and plate. This month we will learn about the art concepts of complementary warm and cool colors, impasto. and halation. I am hard-pressed to think of anything more sweet and joyous than painting, appreciating, and sharing my love of cupcakes with you.
Materials for this event are available if you live in the Fort Lauderdale area. I will drop off a bag containing everything you need (including the cupcake!) to you the day before for an additional cost of $40 per person. Please reach out at least one week in advance (May 22) so I can get everything together and delivered to you.
You will need:
Acrylic paint – basic colors.
10" x 10” Canvas or canvas board
Paintbrushes in varied sizes
Palette for mixing paint (Can use a white plate)
Wet wipes/ paper towels
