The adult/teen drawing and painting group stretched a bit this month and learned how to create some fantastic holiday decor using the One Stroke painting method. The library has 4 video DVDs demonstrating this method and I have a number of pattern books in my collection.
We started with the cornucopia with a few simple fruit to complete it. From "oh that looks hard" to "wow, that is really simple" didn't take long. The grapes were especially popular.
We then moved on to a fluffy evergreen wreath with berries. We discussed using it for window decor or Holiday or Christmas cards. As all the wreaths were pretty big so we added a snowman in the middle complete with hat and birds.
We moved off the thick paper and created a wooden door hanger as the last project of the day. By this point the class was a bit tired and ready to go home but not before signing up for the next month's project of a watercolor poinsettia.
