Instructor: Anastasia Gasheva
Painting on fabric is getting more popular all the time! Now is the time to learn to create a beautiful painting on silk, and to gain the knowledge and skills you need to carry on. In this class, which welcomes beginners, you will be introduced to fabric painting with the help of a simple kit and a great teacher! You will create a floral painting on silk mounted on a hoop (your kit provides 2 hoops!). Learn to use the dynamics of flow and resist and the liquidity of the jewel-like colours of fabric paint to create a pleasing result that will whet your appetite to go on to new fabric projects.
About the Instructor: As you can see from the image above, Anastasia has a flair for silk painting. She has been painting on fabrics for more than 15 year. She has classes on the subject on the online platform Skillshare. Art has always been a huge part of her life and recently she decided to dive in, be the artist she always wanted to be, and share it with you. Fun fact, Anastasia has been teaching tennis at the University of Alberta to kids and adults of all ages for the past 10 years. She is very excited to be teaching art to you next!
