ART IS TRANSFORMATIVE, HAVE FUN WHILE YOU CREATE!
As your instructor, my initial goal is to teach the basic silk painting techniques. Once the students experience the drama of the “strike,” when the dyes or liquid paints hit the dry silk, they have an aha! moment.
Absolutely NO previous painting or art background is necessary. Even if you never picked up a brush, you can share in the joy of silk painting as you watch the dyes glide through the silk. On the other hand, if you are already an artist, you will greatly benefit from learning exquisite silk painting techniques.
Create a small silk painting as you learn the process. The price includes studio teaching time, all materials - silk, dyes, sundries - and also the processing. For some techniques you can your projects home within an hour. For others, the silk must be wrapped and steamed for 2 hours to bond the fibre-reactive dyes to the silk. Then the silk is washed and steam-ironed. Each class is $25. Group and evening (wine) parties are available. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to explore options.
