Watercolor Crown Greeting Card

December 12, 2020, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Want to create a unique watercolor greeting card? Join this fun workshop to learn how to mix watercolor painting with book arts.

In the workshop, we will paint a beautiful red poppy watercolor painting and make a simple book structure. You can further develop this structure into a zine, a book, or simply leave it a sa greeting card. The best part is that there is no glue involved. Our online classroom environment is welcome to all skill levels, and this course is perfect for beginners, as well as more practiced artists who wish to learn something new. Supplies needed include any type of watercolor paint; watercolor paper in 2 sizes, 8×16 inches for the card and 6×6 inches for the painting (we suggest https://www.dickblick.com/items/10020-1060/); a cutting mat; watercolor brushes; ruler; X-Acto knife; and a bone folder. This online class requires students to have a device to join the class with reliable internet access.

$15 Community / $30 Cost of Workshop / $45 Sponsor

In an effort to keep workshops accessible to as many as possible, while compensating our instructors fairly and covering Soapbox costs, we’re pleased to offer a sliding scale. Our “Cost of Workshop” rate is the real cost of our workshop, and we need most people to register at this rate to run the workshop. For those who are able, please consider selecting the “Sponsor” rate to allow someone who cannot afford the real cost to participate. If you are someone experiencing hardship, please register at the “Community” rate. In evaluating where you fall on the scale, we ask you to consider the difference between sacrifice (making trade-offs in my discretionary spending) vs. hardship (paying full cost for this workshop prevents me from meeting basic needs).
