Paper Crafts: Creating a Hole-Punched Tree

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be starting off with creating my first Skillshare class. I do all sorts of paper-crafts, mixed with drawing and painting. I thought I would start off with a really accessible project that anyone could do. Let me know what you think!

I've written up my project outline here and would love some feedback: Click here to view google doc

Also, I've been working on my class description. What do you think of this?

You don't need experience to create a fun and meaningful work of art!

In this mixed media and paper-craft class we will create a tree, drawing the trunk and putting leaves on it with hole-punched paper that you've textured yourself.

In this class you will:

  • learn to draw the trunk of a tree
  • explore creating interesting textures in both watercolor and acrylic paint 
  • layer in texture by adding song lyrics or meaningful text to your painted texture
  • hole punch your textured paper to create leaves
  • glue it all down to create a final product worthy of your walls

I hope you join me on this fun crafting adventure!

Just posted the intro video on YouTube! Here is the link:
