About the program:  In this session, you will explore painting with a flat brush, also referred to as a chisel brush.  You will develop the ability to manipulate the brush; control the angles and pressure changes to capture the “essence” of some of your favourite garden flowers to decorate your envelopes, cards or journal.  

The workshop will be recorded and available for one month.

Members: afterward, we'll coordinate an envelope exchange, for those who wish to participate. 

Experience Level: All levels
