2016 Discover Silk Painting 1040 x 425





Featuring: René Shoemaker, artist, Discovering the Chattahoochee Valley exhibit

Join René Shoemaker as we learn the craft of silk painting. This workshop will explore the process which begins with stretching silk on a frame, sketching/transferring the design onto the silk, mixing dye colors, and painting. Each participant will create a painting on a 22” square hemmed silk that can be worn as a scarf or displayed as a wall hanging. All supplies will be provided. The artist will share examples of historic and contemporary silk paintings during the workshop to help trigger your creativity. No experience is necessary.

Register by April 25; Contact: for more information.
