Illustrator Cynthia Armstrong will guide you through this 5 hour workshop in which you will learn the basics of watercolor painting, experiment with different application techniques and tools, and create your own holiday work of art. Projects include cards, gift tags, bookmarks or a holiday themed work of art suitable for framing. The workshop will feature an introduction and hands-on tutorial of basic techniques (wet on wet, dry on wet, etc.) as well as an introduction to alternative application tools and techniques. Cynthia will provide a color mixing tutorial, focused specifically on “holiday colors” so you can learn how to mix the saturated reds of poinsettias and holly, or the deep greens from pine trees and wreaths. Finally you’ll get to work on your final piece, either  working from your own inspiration or using one of the prepared design outlines provided by Cynthia. Cynthia will work with everyone to help them achieve their best result.
