Holiday Card Project 2015!
The DeviantArt #HolidayCardProject is back for its 9th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In the past few years, this project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards are then divvied up and distributed by DeviantArt members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for DeviantArt volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in

Costs and Initial Set up
The initial cost of any traditional medium can be expensive as several things need to be purchased at the same time. There are often cheaper alternatives to the paints and markers that can be substituted.
Watercolours come in a few varieties, the two most common being pans or tubes. A set of Winsor & Newton pans (12) is around $22USD whilst a set of 10 tubes is about $35USD. They can be purchased individually
