Classes at the Art League of Long Island Dix Hills New York – http://artleagueli.net/
When relaxed, and we know no one is judging us, the inner artist reveals itself. My classes offer a supportive environment to let the artist show itself. No previous art experience necessary. While not everyone will be a great artist everyone can be creative and with silk painting we have had many wonderful surprises. Students with no previous art experience have produced exciting things on silk. No two students go home with the same exact piece. I encourage your own creativity.

contact Long Island Art League http://artleagueli.net/
Shibori is a Japanese term for several methods of dying fabric by folding, stitching, twisting or securing it before dying to produce patterns. Come learn a simple easy way to produce a painted scarf using a PVC pipe with instructor silk painter, Vivien Pollack. The emphasis in this class is on originality, so instead of vat dying we will actually hand paint the silk dyes directly on to the wrapped silk by using pole-wrapping techniques
I am also available for commissioned paintings,custom made scarves, demonstrations and workshops
