Shimmering color on a canvas of silk…Join our new silk painting class and learn the techniques of the “French Silk Serti” method of painting on silk to create beautiful, unique art!
Our instructor is our own Cathy Beausoleil, professional artist and designer, whose work all of us have admired in our gallery shows. Now Cathy shares with us her techniques for creating exquisite colorful art on silk.
No experience is necessary, and the class is open to beginners through advanced painters. The class will be held on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.for six weeks beginning April 24 through May 29. Cost is $75.
Because silk painting supplies are difficult to obtain locally, Cathy will have paints, resists, and fabric on hand for purchase, and will direct students to online sources for additional supplies. Students will need to bring some basic items to the first class, such as brushes, paper towels, and water containers. A complete list of things to bring, along with the flyer more fully describing the class, can be found by clicking HERE.
