Watercolor Christmas Cards – with Chris Blevins and Suzi Vitulli
December 1 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for a full day of painting fun and whimsical Christmas Cards. We have several patterns to choose from, and Suzi and I will both be there to walk you through every step. Patterns range from super easy to intermediate. Are you up for a challenge? Or would you just like a day of play time? Or maybe a little of both. Come and start the holiday season and do something fun for yourself, and then have some lovely cards to give to your friends and loved ones. Glitter may be involved, so you may get sparkly. Heehee.
Please note, some supplies are provided, some are not. See supply list below for what you need to bring. We’ll be providing
- Card stock (to mount your watercolor paintings on to
- Double sided crafter’s tape (for the mounting)
- Glitter glue (and oh boy, do we have lotsa colors for ya!)
- And a few other goodies
Usually, a full-day, two-teacher workshop runs $85. But as a Thank You and Happy Holidays to you, we’re setting the price at $70. Plus, we’re offering an additional $5 discount if you pay a portion of the registration in cash at the event. 🙂
Please be aware we do have a cancellation policy, which you can see here.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you for some holiday watercolor fun!
Suzi and Chris
