About this Course
Autumn is a favorite season. For you too?
Come on and jump in. This is the perfect way to laugh and love our way into brand new sketching practices and come up with all kinds of beautiful and creative ideas for your heart and home.
We will playfully work our way through watercolors, pen & ink, art journaling, and painting on wood blocks (yes, a favorite!) And, we will get to try out the softest wool, too. I personally love to have a piece of handiwork (embroidery, quilting, stitchery) to keep my fingers warm and busy. I will show you how to move your sketches into any stitching project.
We will be creating art we love (from our very own fingers), making practical and beautiful works to grace our homes and gift our friends/family. Almost every project we make is giftable! Just think of it...beautiful art from your sweet heart, all ready for the Christmas holidays.
Here are a few examples:
-Art journals and soft woolies...to make and to gift...
-Blessing boards filled with goodness
-Soups & harvest meals
-Joyful sketches that will make you smile
-a cottage gate to welcome the season
-And dozens more sketching ideas to add to your sparkling season!
(Art of Goodness: Winter Gifting -- projects will follow in November!!!)
