Hello creative one! Welcome to Elemental Butterflies...
This class was originally created in 2018 - but I am happy to revive it here as an offering of Creativity for you to enjoy.
Butterflies are symbols of metamorphosis, renewal, endurance and resurrection. How appropriate for this unprecedented time in the history of us. Our lives have been turned upside down, probably much how a caterpillar feels when she goes into her cocoon! A new way is emerging, a new life - new ways of being, new ways of flying.
I feel that creativity, in any form, is part of our truest nature. And painting with watercolor is one of my favorite ways to express my creativity. I love to share the adventure with you!
This class is inspiring, light-hearted and fun - a perfect way to unwind and focus on beauty. Experiment with colors, play with collage and get the creative juices flowing into your life!
This is a perfect class to share with the kids - it could be a great way to bring the family together in a creative way.
In this class we'll explore simple "wet into wet" watercolor techniques along with the Four Elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire - to create four unique butterflies. We'll use the elements as inspiration - focusing on the colors and energies represented by each one - resulting in four beautiful creations, each with their own personalities.
This is a self-guided study with live lessons when you arrive. No waiting for projects to be posted and you can learn at your own pace. You have unlimited access.
The lessons are video based. I walk you through step by step, with each lesson building on the next.
There are colorful photographs and plenty of written tips and inspiration along the way.
In addition to the simple watercolor techniques we'll explore - we'll be creating a special 'home' for each of our butterflies.
Rather than replicating my creations - I hope that you will be inspired with fresh visions to create your own magical 'homes' for your special butterflies.
These days getting to the art supply store may not be as easy as it once was, a perfect time to use the materials you have and think 'outside the box', or the cocoon, ha!
Your creations can be as simple or as complex as you'd like - the following supplies will be essential, but beyond that I leave you to your imagination!
*Watercolor, any type, any brand
*Brushes - your favorites
*Glue for collage elements (if you choose to create a 'home base' for your butterflies)
*Tracing paper (will be used to draw the butterflies)
That's it! This would be an excellent class for the kiddos to join in too! The techniques are very simple and FUN!
I am creating this course as a 'pay what you can' offering. I understand the financial concerns many of us are facing right now.
There are many ways to feel and receive abundance at this time and my hope is that we all connect with that energy and allow it to flow.
The 'normal' charge for this class would be $20, contribute what feels right for you and your situation.
I receive in love and ask for the circle of abundance and inspiration to flow for us all!
Thank you for supporting my work. I hope you enjoy this class!
