Make Your Own Watercolour Season’s Greetings!


Saturday, December 14    10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Instructor: Francis Marte

Fee includes  most supplies

Recommended for Beginners!

In this class students will have lots of fun making their own Christmas cards using watercolour and craft supplies. Techniques involved are wet on wet, detailing and mixing pigments. Students will finish 5 cards about 4x6” in size, but they will also learn how to paint their own cards at home using the different techniques employed in the class. Not only is this a practical class that you will leave with cards to give to friends and family, but also you’ll learn a number of painting skills you can use throughout your watercolour practice!
