Hosted by The Joy of Drawing and Instructed by Local Bay Area Artist Sonia Brittain


Do you feel the urge to break free from artistic constraints and explore new avenues? This workshop is your invitation to embrace creativity without reservation, inspired by the vibrant world of floral still life painting.


Let go of perfection and delve into the joy of loose, expressive art. Whether you're a seasoned artist or a curious beginner, this workshop will guide you through a process that liberates your creative spirit. 


  • Master the art of "fast and loose" floral sketching. Learn to capture the essence of flowers with bold strokes and vibrant colors, leaving detailed rendering behind.
  • Discover the versatility of still life. Draw from fresh arrangements, personal photos, or even concoct imaginary flower feasts – the possibilities are endless!
  • Embrace mixed media magic. Experiment with gouache, watercolors, oil pastels, and more, all while laying down a dynamic base with a pre-prepared color block.
  • Celebrate freedom of expression. Go big and bold, embrace kitsch patterns, or let minimalism reign – this workshop celebrates your unique artistic voice.
  • Fear not the "oops!" moments. Mistakes are welcome stepping stones. Learn to use playful collage techniques to transform any hiccup into a happy accident.



  • Filling your canvas with vibrant blooms, each stroke a joyous expression of your creativity.
  • Losing yourself in the flow of color and form, leaving worry and judgement far behind.
  • Discovering a fresh, playful approach to art, perfect for reigniting your artistic passion.
