at 12 pm & 2 pm - FREE demos!

 3 Scarf Designs
by Linda Vorobik
Get started with silk painting with this introductory workshop with Linda Vorobik. This is a very satisfying art form, with some things you can control, and some things that it is more fun be surprised by the way the media (silk dyes) play on the silk. Several different types of silk are shown, different resists are introduced, along with different dyes and ways of fixing the dyes. The demonstration begins with the basics of supplies used, preparing the silk for dying, and stretching the silk on a frame, and continues with actually painting of silk dyes on the fabric, and different effects that can be achieved. The demonstration concludes with different ways to fix the silk dyes, washing, drying, ironing, and displaying final art.

Linda has many years of teaching experience in art, and as this is a relatively new medium for her (she has been working with silk a little more than one year), she is excellent for teaching beginners as she understands first-hand their questions and frustrations.

Supplies Linda will be using/displaying at the demo
silk frames
silks--various kinds
dyes--various kinds
brushes--various kinds
goudas--various kinds
salt
hair dryer
iron
silk steamer for setting dyes


This is a great preview to Linda’s workshop on Thursday, May 10th, 2012:

WATERCOLOR: Intense color and Contrast with James Farrand, FREE Demo, April 28th, 2012


"Inbetween" by James Farrand

WATERCOLOR: Intense Color and Contrast with James Farrand
Saturday, April 28th, 2012
at 11 am and 1:45 pm - FREE demo!
JF-Creative.com/Watercolors



"What's Inside" by James Farrand
James will discuss and demonstrate—among other things—various aspects of contrast in art and color. Particularly, he’ll discuss some of the concepts developed by swiss painter and teacher, Johannes Itten, including contrast of hue, contrast of saturation, and contrast of extension/proportion.

James will also demonstrate the basics of how he goes about achieving these contrasts in the medium of watercolor. By using techniques such as pouring/squeezing, charging, glazing, and masking, he creates paintings with highly saturated colors and values that often have viewers asking, 'that's a watercolor?'. With thoughtful attention to these concepts/techniques, and a goodly amount of patience and a friendly blow-dryer, you will learn how you can do it too.
