A Christmas Whimsy

Course skill level: Beginner & Intermediate

In this class we will get into the festive Christmas mood by creating a delightful whimsical Christmas character on skates in a winter wonderland. Also includes a tutorial on how to produce Christmas cards with your own art work! :)

Perfect class to take while Christmas approaches, though you can take this class any time of year no problem!

We’ll look at how to create a fun whimsy character as well creating a beautiful snowy mixed media layered background.

Hope you’ll join!
