Why purchase a greeting card when you can make your own? Mixed media art is an art form that combines a variety of media in a single art piece. In this workshop we will create art using a blank Strathmore paper greeting card. You will pick your own theme – wedding, announcement, birthday, get well, blank. You will choose which pieces of medium to use to create your art. You can bring your own medium (watercolor, watercolor paper, etc.) or use the supplies provided. The class will have acrylic paints, greeting cards and envelopes, dried/pressed flowers, glue, scissors, rubber stamps, found objects and cut out greetings.

Found art are those pieces of things that you have kept around your house – photos, tickets to concerts, programs, items that are small but meaningful. You are welcome to bring your own found art objects as long as they are small enough to put on a 5x7 greeting card.

This greeting card can also be matted and framed and used as a small piece of art. All supplies are included with the $15 materials fee. Students will take home 5 to 8 pieces of art/greeting cards. Ages 17 and up.
