Silk Painting using Spectra Tissue Paper with Sally Knight. THIS CLASS IS FULL!
Description: The Galveston Art League will hold a silk painting workshop on Friday, January 24 from 1 to 3 in the afternoon. 

Spectra Art Paper is a quality tissue that can be used for a variety of art projects. It bleeds color when wet and is especially effective on silk. Attendees will learn to cut, tear, and wrinkle the paper to create a variety of effects on silk. Students will create different colors by layering and overlapping paper to produce additional and more intense colors. The silk fabric we will use can make fashionable scarves, banners, pillow coverings or a lightweight quilt.

The instructor, Sally Knight, learned to paint on silk from GAL’s own
 master silk painter, Susan Moody.  I also have explored creating
designs on silk using Sharpies and Spectra Art paper.” No experience
is necessary to have a good time and to create your own silk scarf
with this project. The instructor will provide the materials for
each class member to make a scarf using Spectra Art Tissue
to wear or give as a gift.

Date: Friday, January 24, 2020
Time: 1 to 3 p.m.
Cost: $25
Class size: 8 to 15

Acrylic Pour Painting Workshop with Troy Knight
The technique of acrylic pour painting uses acrylic paints, mixed with a pouring medium, to create fun and imaginative works of art The joy of the project is that the artist has very little control of the outcome and learns to relish the result of the magical blending of color as it hits the canvas. In this workshop, we will explore various methods of pouring, the use of simple household items to create a variety of effects on the canvas, and the effect of heat on the painted canvas. The physics of pigment weight and heat also makes this project scientific as well as artistic; therefore, regardless of which side of your brain is the strongest, there is something to enjoy in this workshop. The instructor will provide all the materials necessary for attendees to leave with two pour paintings. Please, bring your enthusiasm and love of color and design and leave with two new paintings to hang or use as gifts. You will need something to protect your clothing and a hairdryer will help dry the painting and bring out the color cells.
