Wayfaring Painter: Designing with Vintage Florida

Florida Real Ripe crate label


Make some vintage inspired art!

Come to the Micanopy Branch on Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 2:30 pm to explore the graphic design of old Florida, from fruit crate labels to postcards.  

Wayfaring Painter will walk you through the process of creating your own vintage-inspired design, from layout and lettering to digitizing and printing your work. 

All materials will be provided, no experience necessary.
