More about this course

Christmas is nearly HERE! I'm sure you are looking for gifts to give to your family or friends. Well, you've come to the right class. Everyone appreciates handmade gifts that are unique and made with love! In this class, we will learn how to paint holiday themed landscapes and cards for beginners.

The great thing about these cards is that unlike standard ones, they can be framed as a unique piece of art by the recipient and be treasured for years to come.

By the end of this class, you will gain confidence in painting snow scenes with a variety of watercolour techniques, and will be proud to show off some cards of your own!

Each scene takes between 5-15 minutes to complete, and you'll have a lot of fun painting and putting them together.

In this class, we will learn:

  • How to Paint 9 holiday themed snow scenes (9 different projects)
  • How to create unique card with simple materials
  • How to fold your card professionally using a special trick 
  • How to paint snow by preserving the white of the paper
  • Painting simple trees and buildings with shadows

Join me now in this class, and let's start painting! 

*My reference paintings are included in the projects section to help you with the drawing. Also remember that you can slow down the video in the player settings if you need.

The course project

The Class Project is to complete 1-3 paintings, and turn them into cards by following along to the included lessons. You can also skip the card creating and just complete the paintings! Upload your cards/paintings/photos to the projects section. Class Challenge: How about trying to paint a photograph of your choosing and turning this into a greeting card/painting? 

For the Class Project, I've included scans of my paintings below. I drew these scenes with loose pencil sketches beforehand. Try to use my sketches a general guide, and feel free to move the trees and subjects around. If you have questions or needs, leave a question in the discussion tab. Good luck!
