ARE YOU READY TO LEARN HOW TO TRUST YOUR INTUITION SO THAT YOU CAN LET GO AND HAVE FUN WHEN CREATING?
In FEARLESS FLOWERS, I will share my techniques for painting bold, beautiful flowers in acrylics. I love to have fun in the studio! I believe that there are not mistakes! If you don't like a piece it's just not finished yet! In this course, we will discuss trusting intuition, letting go, and having a good time while painting. We will experiment with different surfaces such as canvas, board, and paper with five projects ranging in size from SMALL to BIG! I will also share my secrets to colour choices and mixing along with my favourite tools to create texture and interest to a piece. Students will complete this course with the tools to create gorgeous floral art that is sure to make a statement!
By the end of this course, students will have an understanding of the following concepts:
- Letting go and having fun in the studio
- Layering in acrylic paints
- Mixing colors to create values and interest in a piece
- Pushing through the "ugly phase"
- Trusting and knowing how to continue to finish a piece that you don't like
- Using a palette knife and other tools to create texture
DESCRIPTION OF LESSONS
This course is made up of five lessons! In lesson one, we will paint a small floral on mixed media art board! This is a quick, fun lesson, where I introduce my intuitive approach to painting! After we warm up, we will move in to create three lessons with varying styles and techniques. We will be inspired by cherry blossoms, a vase of flowers, and large floral pieces! My last lesson is actually two pieces that I created. This lesson is a great example of how I push through in many of my pieces even when things aren't going as easily as I had hoped for! By the end of this course, you will have many beautiful floral pieces for your own home, or to share as gifts with the people that you love!

MEET NIKOL WIKMAN - YOUR CREATIVE GUIDE
My name is Nikol Wikman I live in Victoria, BC Canada with my husband and two children. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I loved art class in school and spent hours upon hours sketching. As I grew up I experimented with different creative avenues. I tried sewing, sculpting, took a stained glass course, beaded, made jewelry. Anything to feed the creative yearning in my soul. In my 20's I decided to try painting again (which I hadn't done since high school). I painted simple pieces for my apartment and loved it! It was so fun to grab a canvas, throw some paint on it and have my own unique piece of art! For a few years I painted here and there but nothing too serious. After my son was born I was struggling a little bit, lonely as a new mom. I decided to make a point of painting (almost) daily. It was one of the best decisions I ever made! In the studio(aka my dining room) I felt like I found myself again! I loved it so much I couldn't stop.
The process of playing with pure liquid colour does something to my heart that nothing else does. I never get bored of it. When I paint I feel joyful and free!
Eight years later I have painted hundreds(maybe even thousands!) of paintings. I have been able to connect and share my love of art with like minded souls from around the world. I've sent paintings to far off places I'll probably never get to visit myself! I feel so lucky and am grateful everyday for what art has brought into my life.
