About the Course

Design your own Christmas card with the option to have your cards printed. Denise will guide you with your own design – perhaps a robin, or snowman, snow scene etc., or choose from a selection of seasonal images provided by Denise.

You can work in either acrylics or soft pastels.

Maximum class size of 6.
Whether you are on holiday or living nearby, a novice or experienced - everyone is welcome. Located at my home studio in Derbyshire.

Following the workshop you have the option to have your painting printed creating your own personalised and unique Christmas cards.

The workshops are fun, relaxing and informative - Please see reviews for my other classes and workshops.

I have a relaxed and informative approach to working with acrylics and mixed media and other techniques. I was a professional muralist for 11 years, specialising in trompe l'oeil (trick of the eye) techniques. Although photo realism painting in acrylics was essential in creating a painting illusion, I have also worked more recently with impasto and mixed media using acrylics which is an enjoyable and liberating experience. I was a former member of the Association of Professional Muralists and have appeared on television and radio.
