Here's a fun one-day workshop where we will create holiday cards and discover the tricks of gold leaf as you decorate your cards or small paintings.  First, we will use our imaginations to create a winter forest collage or painting on a few greeting cards or small watercolor papers.  Then we will experiment with gold leaf under Susan's playful guidance.

The photos are some of the cards made in last year's popular workshop.

Class will be over in time to attend the December Gallery reception downstairs. (There is no member's meeting or demo in December.)
