Take a Greeting Card Class
I have collaborated with skillshare.com to create an online course on Getting into the Greeting Card Business. The content is based on my experience of working in the industry for over 20 years, and from publishing over 1, 000 cards. Class is self-paced with student/teacher feedback on your final project in the gallery.
- The fundamentals of professional card design.
- Transforming art into a greeting card.
