Watercolor Holiday Cards
Paint your own nature-inspired holiday cards in this beginner-friendly watercolor class! We'll experiment with a range of watercolor techniques and learn different ways to paint wreaths, trees, and winter botanicals. We'll explore color mixing, so you can get the best earth tones for winter foliage. Finally, you'll also have the option of using different media such as pen and colored pencils that you can use to finish off your holiday cards for family and friends. 

Various supplies needed:

  • Pencil with eraser
  • Watercolor paints. You don't need to purchase expensive paints; even a basic watercolor set with primary colors will be great for this class. If you are looking to purchase new paints, I will send along a list of my preferred budget-friendly paints and other materials.
  • Watercolor brushes. 1 small size watercolor brush (0, 1, 2 size) and 1 medium brush (4, 6, or 8)
  • Watercolor or mixed media paper. (If you need a recommendation, we love Canson XL paper or Strathmore 400 series. Both are very budget friendly and come in different sizes.) You can also buy pre-cut watercolor postcards, such as from Strathmore. 
  • Palette, disposable plate, or take-out container lid for mixing colors
  • Water cup and paper towels
  • Something round to trace, such as a roll of masking tape or a bowl
  • Optional - A ruler or something with a straight edge
  • Optional - other media such as colored pencils, gel pens, markers, etc!
