Plant painting workshop at Where The Wild Things Bloom


The best gifts come from the heart. Learn how to paint luscious leaves and blooming bouquets in one of Lansing’s more beautiful flower shops. Led by Svitlana Martynjuk, a contemporary fine artist currently residing in the capital city, this lesson will break down the fundamentals of painting still life portraits. 

Martynjuk was born in Rivine, Ukraine and came to the United States to complete her education in Fine Arts and Strategic Management. Her portfolio includes a wide array of commissioned pieces, published book illustrations, and collaborations with both West Elm and Minted. The majority of her work comprises watercolor and acrylic medium.

Martynjuk will walk through color theory and break down key elements to replicating a plant’s structure. Not into realism? Martynjuk has a demonstrated history in working in abstraction and is setting up the workshop to accommodate participants at all levels. 

Provided supplies for the class includes acrylic paints, paint trays, brushes, paper and of course, plants. Participants are welcome to select a plan from the shop as their reference or bring in a photo of their own. For shop's plant health & safety we are unable to accept your own physical plants. Guests are welcome to bring their own materials and snacks.
