New silk painting classes coming up!

Let me know if you want more info or have questions – 805-602-7817 or email westernartist (at) gmail (dot) com  – These classes are held at Left Coast Art Studio, 1188 Los Osos Valley Road in Los Osos. You can visit my Meetup Group to register.

Silk painting yields beautiful results even for those inexperienced in any kind of painting or drawing. No previous art experience is needed.  Use water-based French dyes, water-based resists, and chemical dyesetting (no steaming).  Assorted geometric designs, as well as designs from nature are provided.  Learn about fabrics, dyes, and resists, and discover some special effects.

Make an Original Hand-Painted Silk Scarf — February 24 (Friday) 6-8pm and February 25 (Saturday) 10am-2pm, $85, all materials included.  You’ll create a  handmade 8×72-inch scarf. Bring a bag lunch on Saturday.

Create an Original Handmade Silk Painting (for Mounting) — February 27 (Monday) and March 6 (Monday) 2pm – 4pm, $85, all materials included.  You’ll create a 20×20-inch art piece with raw edges, which you can later choose to mount onto canvas or panel, incorporate into a quilt, or mount onto a jacket or other garment.

Silk Painters Creative Circle — on-going, Mondays 4:00-6:00pm, $20.  Bring your projects and materials, and enjoy the company of others. This meeting is not a class but simply an opportunity to share the energy and inspiration of a circle of silk artists. If you have taken one of my classes or are already a silk painter, you are welcome to join us with your own materials, or I can supply silk and other supplies for a reasonable fee.
