    The focus of this workshop is making cards and other larger pieces suitable for framing and gift giving.  All pieces made in the workshop will have Spring and Early Summer themes using pressed petals and leaves.  Learn how to press the botanicals and apply them to a heavy cardstock.  Your creations will make a lovely gift for someone or to keep for yourself.   Supplies include an abundance of pressed botanicals, cards and paper. No experience necessary.

    Spectrum Gallery adheres to all safety precautions during classes and workshops including social distancing, mask wearing and the use of hand sanitizer.

    Teaching Artist Anna Sidorow works in mixed media: collage, printing, painting and primarily creates small works of art. Her paintings are semi-abstract, and more than just the subject, the colors, shapes, movement and the paint itself gives the image a strong visual aesthetic. She uses pressed botanicals in her collaged note cards – every petal, leaf and stem has been picked and pressed by her. She has been experimenting with marbling paper and monotype printing, using gelatin as the plate surface. Anna has participated in numerous art shows and exhibits her work at Spectrum Gallery.
