Art Starts with Louisville Visual Art – Liz Foley Shows How to Create Colorful, Symmetrical Mandalas with Stamps Made from Veggies!

LVA Instructor and Printmaker Liz Foley takes you back to her shop for her second Art Starts Video Lesson – Vegetable Print Mandalas.
Art Starts with Louisville Visual Art videos help you make the most of staying safe at home. We’d love to see your artworks displayed in windows as we take our daily walks – and maintain healthy distance. Visit our website every Saturday morning for a new lesson. You can return to try them again as much as you like!

And now you can make a donation to our Art Starts Fundraiser via the button at the bottom of the Art Starts Video page. We’re raising $2,500 to produce 10 Art Starts Videos, each of which employs a local LVA-Affiliated artist. Our family of artists need this work more than ever in these uncertain days, so if you’ve enjoyed an Art Starts lesson – or just want to make sure others can – please consider a gift. Every dollar helps!

Drawing paper (thicker than copier paper) 12×18
