Abstract Painting Birthday Party!

Several months ago, this incredible Artist scheduled her daughter's birthday party with us at Bloom-Prints Studio! Visit her online or if you are local, visit her stunning shop HERE!

Amy had requested an abstract painting theme for her darling daughter and I was thrilled at the opportunity to branch away from our usual, very structured birthday party art.

See below for a step by step tutorial. This lovely project had been derived from this tutorial!

These tiny artists created some stunning work!

We started out drawing abstract flowers with sharpie markers.

Then the girls were allowed to "free style"...making it their own by adding rainbows, sunshine etc!

I adore how the sharpie peeks through on the flowers, once they are painted!

Then we started color mixing to build our flowers, staying within a color palate of reds, pinks and oranges.

To finish, we used a unique technique I found from an artist I studied under years ago.

After our flowers were established and our green leaves added, we built in gray paint around the flowers. (Usually we would work on the background first and then develop the foreground, but I love the whimsical feel this technique offers).

Finally, touches of Gold acrylic were added.

And this was our Sweet Birthday girl, Miette's painting.

Completely smitten with how it turned out!! Stunning!

Degas-Inspired Milk on Fabric Painting!

Last week, I taught my sweet kiddos about one of my favorite artists: Degas.

Our milk on fabric paintings were a HUGE success... 

(Yes, I said "milk" painting :)

I strayed from using Degas dancer subject matter because of the difficulty level for this age, so we focused on nature...flowers, the sea, fish, and sunsets over the water...
