Funky Floral

Taught by Renée Schuls-Jacobson

JOYfilled Arts & Crafts Virtual Summer Camp July 22-24

Class Info

Class Overview

In this lesson, students will create a whimsical floral bouquet inside a polka-dot vase. I will facilitate the class using acrylic paint and a host of multimedia supplies, including acrylic paint, molding paste and Posca paint-pens. However, it IS possible to take this class and use watercolors, if you prefer!

No Skill Level Required

About Renée

While homebound & suffering from an iatrogenic brain injury, Renée Schuls-Jacobson taught herself to paint, using whatever supplies she had lying around — acrylic paint, colored pencils, oil pastels, paint pens, antique papers & old magazines. Her work features a collective of impressionist portraits, depicted in a whimsical palette – and many of her pieces feature words and affirmations.

Eight years later, she has emerged from her invisible injury as RASJACOBSON. An independent artist whose work can be found in private collections all over the world, she is also a teacher & mental health activist who works to educate people about the dangers associated with long-term psychiatric drug use.
