Intuitive abstract greeting cards—what to expect
Like to sling paint, alcohol ink, blossoming rich color around? Feeling a bit uptight? This process of making cards is the antidote to worry and anxiety.
Materials are provided. We use watercolor paper, tape, paint, colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors and intense pigments in one big hash. We painlessly learn a bit about color theory, too. We dry the works and then rearrange them into stunning show pieces on greeting cards you’ll be proud to send to those you love. Each person will be able to make two to three cards, depending on time availability.
