Paint Your Own Silk Scarf with Patti Pease Johnson



Join Big Island artist Patti Pease Johnson, for the Paint Your Own Silk Scarf workshop on September 5, from 9:00am-12:30pm at Volcano Art Center.

This workshop offers you a great way to have fun with colors and dyes and make a stylish personal statement every time you wear it!

In this workshop, you’ll paint your own 8” x 53” scarf using three colors of your choice, which will create many more colors on the silk. Pick a main color, then, choose the other two after learning about color theory. You’ll then be ready to mix your desired colors, achieved by pre-mixing the four process colors (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black). Students from previous classes have been amazed by what they refer to as “happy color accidents.”

This workshop is a great way to enjoy the instant results of dyes, while creating your own unique piece of artwork. It’s all about playing with colors.

Patti Pease Johnson’s artwork can be found at galleries and shops across the State and in collections around the world. Patti has a designer’s ability to distill natural subjects into their most essential forms and to rearrange them in her paintings. She lives in Kea’au with her family and teaches painting at her home studio.
Patti will also offer Experimental Watercolors on September 19 at Volcano Art Center.

Cost for the workshop is $60 and $54 for VAC Members plus a $10 supply fee per person. Beginner and intermediate artists are welcome.
