Using Zoom technology, we will meet in the morning and afternoon for three days of classes, spread out over six days to give ample time for creating your work. Our Zoom classes will be moderated by Devorah Harris who will help us keep to a schedule so we'll have time for questions and for making sure your work gets the feedback you need.
This is a silk painting class for people who already have the essential materials, are able to stretch their silk at home, and are ready to go further in their work. All the basics will be covered: use of water-based resist, Resistad, underpainting to eliminate white lines, creating dimension, color harmonies, good composition, and how to handle errors that arise.
In the mornings, we'll meet for slideshows and demonstrations, and suggestions for painting projects. In the afternoons, we'll reconvene to look together at the work produced. Comments and feedback will be encouraged.
You will need a laptop or tablet, iPad or cell phone with a camera built in to access Zoom and take photos of the work you are doing.
A list of materials to have on hand is noted below.
