Be inspired by winter garden features such as amaryllis, snowberries, poinsettia, holly, and more as we create miniature works of art as greeting cards. Susan Pearson will demonstrate a variety of techniques such as creating patterns, quick and simple impressions, wet on dry and wet into wet, as well as fine detailed realism. Some painting experience is recommended.

Susan suggests that participants have the following materials at home:
