Batik Painting for All Messalonskee F19

$25

with Pam Gatcomb

Calendar Nov 16, 2019 at 8 am

In this class beginners will learn the art of Batik Painting using a chanting tool. This art form is simple and fun, so it will allow you to be quite successful quickly. Students who have taken the class before will be able to advance their skills. You will make a colorful batik painting and dip dye a bandana using real indigo dye. Our instructor learned the art form from a Master Batik Javanese artist in Singapore where she lived for a year. She has taught this class at summer camp and her students love “batiking.” This class is open to community members, parents/guardians, and young people 10 to 17 who are interested in expanding their art skills. (Both parent and young person must register.) Please bring a hair dryer (if you have one), large plastic trash bag, and several plastic grocery shopping bags. A $25 material fee is payable to the instructor at the start of class. Do bring a bag lunch, as we will have a half hour break about halfway though the class while our art work dries. Limit 10 students.
