Join local artist and author Jeanette Robertson for a seasonal greeting card workshop for adults. The two-hour program will be held Friday, May 19th at 10:00 am in the Community Room. Participants will learn to craft three different card types: a simple origami folding design, a classic lilac stamp design, and a design incorporating colored pencils. They will then choose from an assortment of greetings to complete their cards.
Jeanette Robertson is a local watercolor and pencil artist, whose work has been published in books, magazines, and greeting cards for over 20 years. She is also the author/artist of three books: Painting Greeting Cards for Fun & Profit (1999), Greeting Cards from A to Z (2006), and Watercolor 101 (2007). Her work also appears in the book Splash 8.
Jeanette has presented art workshops at The Norman Rockwell Museum, The Maryland Arts Academy, The Chautauqua Institute, The Villages Lifelong Learning Collage, and others prestigious venues. Post retirement, she has ventured into different art and craft forms, experimenting with “rubber stamps, ink, colored pencils, decorative papers, designs, prints, embellishments, embossing, color, textures and working small.”
Participants are asked to bring double-sided tape and colored pencils from home, if available. All other materials will be provided. Class size is limited to 12 participants. Stop by or call the Library to reserve a spot. Three additional workshops will be scheduled throughout the summer.
