15 or more 5” x 7” postcard bases. I use Pellon’s 71f Peltex for cards that I wish to finish with quilting, satin stitched edging, and backing fabric. You are welcome to use a lighter weight stabilizer for your postcard base if you wish.
Access to your stash, fabric scraps off all kinds are useful.
Fusible web, parchment or silicone pressing sheet, iron OR a glue stick.
An attitude of playful exploration!
Optional: Start Your Art card deck: https://shop.lyrickinard.com/products/start-your-art-cards
During this fun and free flowing workshop you will loosen up, play around, and create a small stack of art cards. Use them for mailing, framing, or simply take the time to explore and learn without any of the usual pressure to “make good art.”Expect lots of learning and laughter, a little creative chaos, and the opportunity to make new friends.
Students will be given directions that teach various design basics such as color schemes, focal point, proportion, formulas for making a face, etc. Come away with a good review of the elements and principles of art.
The Ideas Behind the Exercises:
Everyone can be an artist if you are willing to try and put in the effort (just like learning to read)
New skills can be acquired at any stage in life if you give yourself time to learn
Let go of expectations of perfection – fear of failure leads to inhibitions and stagnation
Making BAD ART is a necessary step towards making good art
