Picture of art depicting Silk Painting Workshop

Silk Painting (designed for adults)

Excluding Sales Tax

Join us as we learn how to paint on silk using resist techniques. We will create a small, framed work suitable for hanging. 


What to expect:

  • Class will be 2 hours.

  • You may draw an original picture or trace one of the provided pictures. Coloring books offer excellent choices as they have blackline drawings intended to be colored. Just keep it simple. ☺

  • You will use water soluble fabric pens or pencils to trace the picture onto your silk. 

  • We will use resist medium to trace the picture and thinned acrylic paints to fill in the pictures. We will practice blending colors and use of different painting tools. Also, we will experiment with salt as a repelling agent. 

  • After experimenting, when you are confident, you will create a picture approximately 12” X 12” either square or circular. 

  • Cost is $45.00 per person. Registration and pay may be made online (through this listing) or in person at The Simple Life (address below). Sign-up soon before classes fill up. Space is limited. 


*Comfortable clothing and an apron are recommended as we will get messy, and we will be using acrylic paint. Some items may require that you pick them up later after they dry.
