Open Paint – Sat Nov 10 2018 – Card Making Pendant Making Instagram

If you’re interested in painting, drawing, and illustrating, we have the perfect Saturday lined up! It’ll be a great time with laughter, conversation, creativity, and the space to stretch out! It’s an open paint! All are welcome, including the public, family, and friends! It’s free!

If the weather is nice out, visitors can also embark on an Uxbridge sketch walk. We have the maps all ready.

Cardmaking / Pendant Making Hands-On Workshop 10am-noon
In addition to the open paint, we will be doing a hands-on workshop from 10am to noon on making cards from your 4×6 artwork. This workshop will demonstrate a variety of ways of taking your 4×6 artwork – either an original or a print – and then turning that into a greeting card. If you want to make your own cards out of your own 4×6 artwork, which you would bring with you, there would be a charge for the supplies, based on the actual cost of the items. It ranges from 30 cents to $1 per card.

Here’s some of the supplies we’ll have on hand:

Plymouth Nature Collection frame
Plymouth Ivory Collection frame
Plymouth Spring Collection frame
Plymouth Summer Collection frame

Strathmore white emboss mount

Juvale Kraft Paper frame

White 5×7 plain cards + envelopes

5.44×7.25 plastic bags

I’ll also bring the items for making pendants. Note that this is primarily so you can see how it works. The plan is for people to then email me JPGs of their chosen art for NEXT weekend 11/17 so I can print out your pendant art for you. That way it’s the right size to make pendants and earrings from. But by coming by today you’ll see how it all works so you can plan out your options.

Instagram Hands-On Workshop 1-3pm
Instagram is incredibly powerful for artists. Bring your smartphone or tablet – those are the devices Instagram works on – and I’ll help you get set up. We have free WiFi in the gallery.

All BVAA members can get a free copy of Lisa Shea’s book on merchandising your artwork. It covers these topics and more. Just let Lisa know if you’re interested in getting your copy!
