Have you ever wanted to make your cards to send out for the holiday season? Now is your chance! Come check out our Painting The Season of Joy class! In this class you will explore painting Christmas themed cards with a flat brush, also called a chisel brush. You will develop the ability to manipulate the brush; control the angles and pressure changes create wonderful Christmas/winter images.
