Watercolor Greeting Cards
In this class you will learn how to paint watercolor greeting cards. These miniature art pieces do the big job of helping us to express love, gratitude, and friendship. Taking only minutes to paint, each card allows us to be creative and have fun.
We will paint examples of Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Year’s cards, however, the skills learned can be applied to any occasion. After taking this class you’ll be able to create personal, handmade messages to make any occasion super special.
I will explain how to use photos to find various subjects for painting. Our card designs will be fairly realistic so we will need a reference to paint from. We will talk about composition of greeting cards. They are small but are still art pieces so certain rules of composition will apply to them. I will show how to paint tricky subjects like candle flames, lights and sparkling glass. We will also review materials for embellishments - sprinkles, gold and other metallics.
