NEW! Hand-Painted Valentines Workshop

For Ages: 5 to 12 years old

$25 members / $35 nonmembers

$10 Materials Fee (payable to instructor)

Instructor: Instructor from Art Experience Studios

 

Be my valentine! It is a special time of the year to reconnect. Why not making valentine's cards with a personal touch for your loved ones? Mailing hand-painted cards have been a tradition in Asia, especially in Japan. It involves simple line drawings and painting with Sumi ink, Chinese brush and watercolors, accompanied by a few apt words. One doesn’t have to be an art expert to create these picture cards. In fact, the more care-free and casual the artwork is, the more interesting it looks. LESS IS MORE! You will receive a project kit to use during the workshop and take home to make more cards.
