What you'll learn in this watercolor class:Ever wanted to create your own watercolor cards for the holidays? You can paint each one individually, or create one image (any size) and use it to have cards made with an online printing service. It's easier than you think.
This workshop will demo at least 5 holiday designs and variations, mostly non-denominational (candles, pine trees, holly, winter forest, ornament, wreath, etc). You'll learn how to use table salt to create snow effects as well.
We'll also cover the basics of using Vistaprint to design a card online, upload your image, and add exactly the message/text you like in the color and font you prefer, front and inside.
Note: Bring your pad or laptop; I can make a high-res photograph of your painting so you can upload it and use it later.

Teacher: Joan IaconettiSee Classes Taught by This Teacher »
For over 25 years, she worked as a non-fiction writer and a travel photographer. Fourteen years ago Joan took up watercolor on a lark, and soon became pleasantly obsessed with it. Unfortunately, the two classes she took (both with accomplished professional artists) never covered the basics of working with watercolor, and left me confused and frustrated. As Joan taught herself from books, she began to put together the course she wish she'd been able to take -- this course, Watercolor for Absolute Beginners. In 2012 she was honored to have her work included in the National Watercolor Society 92d Annual Exhibition in Los Angeles, in the Allied Artists of America Annual Exhibition in New York, and in the Salmagundi Art Classes Exhibit where she was awarded Best in Show.
