Painting on silk is a playful and colorful adventure. If you have never tried it, this is your chance to take an excellent class with the accomplished instructor and artist Claudia Fluegge. Claudia has won numerous national awards for her silkpainting work and currently exhibits at Weyrich Gallery in Albuquerque.

Class participants will start by stretching a white piece of silk over a frame. Then Claudia will lead you through an exploration of basic silk painting techniques such as salting, outlining, and applying dyes with a paintbrush. Usually there is enough time to make two pieces. Finished pieces must be steamed to fix the dyes. Claudia will charge $2 per piece if you would like her to do the steaming for you. If you have previously taken this class, she would love to have you back to do more painting!
