Creating postcards with simple painted images and a few heartfelt words or a haiku intended to be mailed to a friend or loved one.

With Sally Penley
Session 2C, 12PM to 2PM PDT

Come learn about the fun Japanese art of Etegami—creating postcards with simple painted images and a few heartfelt words or a haiku intended to be mailed to a friend or loved one.  Etegami literally means “picture letters.” You don’t have to be a fine artist or a seasoned  calligrapher to enjoy this simple art form (and you’ll support the USPS in the process!). No art  experience necessary.

Tools / Supplies:
• Watercolor postcards
• A small-to-medium sumi brush
• Sumi ink
• Fine Sharpie marker and/or Tombow fudensake brush pen
• Pan watercolors (like Prang) and watercolor brush
• Water container
• Signature stamp or chop, if you have one
