Watercolor Workshop

Valentine's Day Cards

via Zoom 

with Vaishaly Jaiprakash


January 24, 2021

1:00 - 2:00 PM

In this workshop we will learn how to make heart stencils and different ways to utilize stencils in making cards and other projects.

 Some prior basic watercolor painting experience could be helpful.

In Each Session:

  • How to make your own stencils, with examples

  • Using stencils in paintings and card-making projects

  • The stencil as a viewfinder

  • Repurposing old paintings or scraps, into cards by using stencils. 


Materials List


  • Watercolor Paper: Canson XL watercolor paper 140 lb cold press. The instructor will be using some practice pieces from my previous sessions to cut out the heart shapes.)

  • Other Paper: Cardstock for making cards and light-weight paper for envelopes.

  • Paints: Artist' grade watercolors in warm and cool primary colors. 

  • Brushes: Good quality watercolor brushes round #8, #6, #4 and #2.  One 1/2" flat brush is optional but good to have.

  • Miscellaneous: Pencil, markers (gold, silver, black, white), eraser, water, palette, paper towel, good quality glue, scissors, painter's tape, etc.

This is a great way of using up the scraps and warm-up pieces you've had from the past so feel free to grab colorful old paintings and practice pieces that contain colorful elements!
