In this 1-day or 2-day class, Kimberly Adams will teach you how to paint landscapes and poppies with your fingertips! She will share her easy tips on how to mix color directly on the canvas and manipulate the paint into thick texture. You will enjoy the simplicity of this technique and find it refreshing not to use tools or brushes. In addition to painting, Kimberly will put you at ease on deciding when a painting is finished and celebrate the ‘happy accidents’ that occur - as these ‘happy accidents’ so often become the best part of the painting.

On Saturday, you will paint a vibrant landscape of a poppy field full of color and texture that will dazzle your friends and family as you share your story about its creation.

On Day 2 Kimberly will expand on the finger painting technique you learned on Day 1. On this 2nd day you will paint a 2nd painting along with Kimberly – she’ll choose one specially for you.

 Kimberly’s finger painting workshops fill up quickly, so sign up today!
