learn a new art

Tie-Dye Shibori Vessel
Did you know that, in addition to a staggering array of quality art supplies, Dick Blick also offers free art lessons? Geared toward school agers, these lessons turn otherwise intimidating processes, like silk screening, Secco or Shibori, into something a little less daunting - something even your kids could do - with the aid of printable pdf's and video tutorials. Plus, I know that when I browse through Blick's products, there are so many that intrigue, but I wouldn't know how to start using them. Each project links to the supplies needed where - imagine this - they can easily be purchased from Dick Blick! (This is not a paid endorsement.)

Try it. Who knows - your inner fresco-ist may have been waiting for an opportunity just such as this. Oh, and I guess you could also share these ideas with your children. If you're so inclined.

did not know! thanks for all the good resources you are constantly pointing me to.

I've always wanted to try silk screening. When are you starting classes? Where can I sign up?

Robyn said...

Larissa, the feeling is mutual.

Sherry, I know, that would be so fun, right? Tell you what, one of these days, if we're both still interested, we can take a class together. Or, better yet, you can learn now and come down here and teach me. :)
