Flower Power Hour with RAOFACTOR

Wildflower Art Studio

Intro to Gouache Painting by Wildflower Art Studio

Class: $45 | Kit: $45

Gouache (rhymes with squash, if you were wondering) is like a combination of watercolor and acrylic, and Wildflower Art Studio says it’s a great medium for beginners. For your first project, you’ll paint a monarch butterfly that will be pretty enough to frame, whether you’re a painting newbie or seasoned crafter.

Wine and Design Workshops by The Iman Project

Class and Supplies (Local Pickup): $75+

The Iman Project’s workshops were created to give everyone a seat at the table, and though the events are now virtual, founder Bree Clarke still manages to foster a sense of community via video call. Sign up for a Wine and Design class to receive everything you need to design a bold bouquet, as well as a bottle of Texas-made Boca Chica Wine. Keep an eye out for The Iman Project’s new national workshops. The supplies–including the live flowers–can be mailed, so the class makes a great gift for far-away family members.
