About this event:

Created by Live Living Network

We will apply layers of colors and patterns using everyday objects and techniques to achieve a colorful background for our floral creations. We’ll then identify areas of color and pattern to become florals and leaves by outlining these spots with white chalk. These areas are then torn by hand or cut with scissors in the various shapes of flowers and leaves. Each image is then adhered to the community vase with double sided tape. The result is an oversized dimensional bouquet of flowers.
