This workshop will be an introduction to silk painting using the serti technique. We will talk about technique, using resist/gutta, color application and blending, salt technique, setting the colors and all that good stuff in plenty of detail. You’ll paint a handkerchief to get used to the process, and then an 8 x 54 inch scarf. I’ll borrow your pieces to set the colors and get the finished pieces back to you a few days later.

Ages: 11 to adult

All supplies included for the class. If desired, you can purchase a silk painting kit to take home, containing dyes, resist, squeeze bottle and brushes, for $25 at the class. Not required.

Robert Schlegel will demonstrate how he uses acrylic paint to develop his striking urban landscape imagery. Sequoia Gallery and Studios is thrilled to partner with Bob to bring this free event to the public (to the first 30 people who register at Sequoia). Bob will show the techniques he uses with a variety of tools on different surfaces, such as boards, canvas or paper. This demonstration at Sequoia will be on canvas or panel with acrylics.

Bob describes his work saying, “I attempt to present my interpretation of the objects and forms found in the environment. Of particular interest to me are man-made structures juxtaposed into this landscape. The interaction of shape, contrast and line are what intrigue me and I attempt to transform these images into the compositions of my paintings.” 

Classroom space is limited. Please be sure you can attend before you register to reserve your spot. This better ensures that Sequoia can accommodate all who are interested.  After 30 people have registered to attend, there will be a waiting list in case of cancellations.   Please contact Sequoia Gallery + Studios,503-693-0401, Tues-Sat 10 am – 5 pm.
