Inland Empire SfC

Sunday, August 20, 2023, 2-5 pm (PDT)

Free Outreach Program. SfC membership not required. 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM: This will be an adventure in painting small creative pages. Barbara will give step-by-step instructions for each exciting page. The book pages will be constructed from three 6”x 9” pieces of watercolor paper either 90# or 140#, folded in half to give us 6" x 4.5" pages. We will be using a Pamphlet Stitch to hold it together. The time flies by so quickly, but Barbara has prepared each page instruction, so you can catch up at your own pace.

All levels. Program will be recorded and available for one month.
