Two Upcoming Classes

July 16-19 NCI Environmental Learning Ctr.
"Art Afield: Diablo Creative Arts Retreat"

July 20-26 Grunewald Guild
"Color in the Woods: Silk Painting Workshop"

I love to teach. Silk painting is especially fun to teach because the silk dye colors are so vibrant and rich, and the application can be so simple. The first pieces a student makes are usually joyous and fun, and often very beautiful simply because of the materials we are using.

Come and take a 4 day class with me at North Cascades Institute's Environmental Learning Center. I will be one of three instructors July 16-19. Art Afield: Diablo Creative Arts Retreat" will host a calligraphy and a watercolor class alongside our silk painting class. We can cross-fertilize by using calligraphy and watercolor techniques in our silk painting.

If you'd rather spend a whole week painting on silk, come to the Grunewald Guild near Leavenworth WA July 20-26. The Guild is an interfaith sanctuary for art and spirit. We will be shareing time there with paper clay sculptors, printmakers, stained glass artists and wood sculptors.
