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.
If you decide after the first class that the course is not for you, you will be charged $40 for the first class and receive the balance as refund.
