Floral Mailbox Painting

Saturday, July 13, 2024

Embrace the vibrant spirit of summer by painting enchanting florals on your mailbox! Join us for a delightful one-day workshop led by the talented local artist, Katharine Woolard DeBoard.

In this engaging class, you’ll have the opportunity to paint a stunning floral design onto your mailbox, perfectly complementing the blossoming beauty of the season. Prior painting experience is helpful but not required.

Feel free to bring your own mailbox to personalize or purchase one from the list of vendors* below to use for the class. If you want to join this class but you don’t have supplies, you can purchase supplies from Katharine on the day of the class for an additional fee of $7.00.

Please pack a delicious lunch, and then come immerse yourself in a day of creativity and camaraderie as we transform ordinary mailboxes into works of art!
