Today's ART Now lesson is "flower pressing" which infuses nature, creativity and patience! "Flower pressing involves the use of leaves and flower petals to flatten as a decorative piece. The process is done to remove any moisture and preserve the colors. An artist takes meticulous care in the placement of these preserved pieces to create a delicate and striking work of art." - Felt
