Mindful History: Decorative Arts Handprinted Cards and Envelopes


Join us for a Museum-based experience focusing on connecting participants with our exhibitions and more during the long months of winter.  Experiences include exploring art and history, yoga and meditation, decorative arts, and journaling at the Whaling Museum and NHA Historic Properties. 

Decorative Arts Handprinted Cards and Envelopes with Mary Emery Lacoursiere

Using simple printmaking techniques, make a set of colorful cards.  With acrylic paint and a variety of natural and found materials, make patterns and textures on the cards that are guaranteed to inspire you.  Also, make envelopes to go with your cards out of decorative and book papers.  Each card will be unique and is the perfect vehicle to write and tell someone you are thinking of them.
