The first two Saturdays of May are fully booked with silk painting sessions at Bobby VanZant’s artist studio in Henderson, KY. She is a wonderful artist, who is teaching children about the arts, different artists,and all kinds of techniques throughout the year. If you would like more information from her about upcoming art camps this summer or her art lessons throughout the school year you can contact her through her email firstname.lastname@example.org.
River Point Health Center will be another place were I will spend some time silk painting with the seniors. This time we will paint smaller squares to be sewn onto bags. This is always a very rewarding time. I am really looking forward to it.
And just brand new, off the phone with Barb Grossman in Pittsburgh, on Saturday afternoon, August 23, I will be teaching a silk painting class, creating long scarves at her brand new “Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival”. I am very excited to see friends and spend time reconnecting while having fun creating some beautiful scarves with everybody. If you would like more information about this festival go to http://www.pghcreativearts.com. Barb is also the founder of the “Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival”. Hope to see some of you at the Creative Arts Festival.

It is the middle of June, hard to believe. And when I look at my last post I realize I dropped the ball. The silk painting sessions with Bobby VanZant have been a hit. The scarves that were painted were stunning and I do hope each participant is enjoying their creations at this point.
I can not emphasize enough how enriching the process of fixating the scarves after they have been painted is for me. When I come home, take each scarf off the frame and get to handle one by one with time to look at each one separately a smile appears on my face, a satisfying warmth flows thru me and excitement about bringing the finished beautiful scarf to its creator brings pure joy.
With that, I need to say thank you to each and every one who has taken and the leap and painted scarves with me, for you have brought and are bringing more joy to me then you can ever imagine. I am looking forward to the next group.
But first a few photos of the sessions at Bobby VanZant who herself is an artist and teacher.
