Using watercolor paintings, experiments, and doodles, make unique and expressive notecards that you can give to loved ones or cherish as artistic keepsakes with artist Shelley Row. On the first workshop day we will play with watercolor techniques to hone your skills through experimentation, creating colorful practice pieces. On day two, we will use what we learned on day one plus a few more tricks to create unique and personal cards. You will be encouraged to make up your own directions, use your individual style, and push the creative envelope. With so much of our communication happening online now, there’s something extra special about sending and receiving a card through the mail. This is a great workshop to sign up for with friends!

About the Instructor

Shelley RowThroughout her career, Shelley Row has taught art at the elementary, middle and high school levels in Chesterfield County Public Schools. She has had her own studio and gallery, taught “in home” painting workshops and served as adjunct faculty for the VCU Art Education Department. She strongly believes in everyone’s ability to create and the pure joy to be found through “playing” with a variety of art media. As a practicing visual artist, she also understands the absolute necessity of the arts in society and advocates for the visual and performing arts. “Teaching at Lewis Ginter has been the greatest gift of my retirement years. I have had the privilege of working surrounded by beautiful, ever-changing inspiration and meeting the most wonderful people.”
