In a relaxed atmosphere of warmth and good humor, this class is an introduction for the non-painter to the use of non-toxic transparent permanent textile paints on cotton fabric suitable for quilts. Students will spend the first day painting skies, water, and more to become familiar with the various effects that the watercolor paints produce when diluted to certain degrees and when applied with brushes, sponges, and bottles. During this time, students will also experiment with mixing colors, manipulating fabric, and painting many special effects pieces for blue skies, sunsets, leaves, earth, and others.

The second day gives students the opportunity to develop more sophisticated color combinations through a concentration on mixing colors, as well as creating individual painted landscapes and several other landscape techniques for interesting results.

Students generally complete about 3 - 5 yards of fabric pieces if weather is good and they are able to dry fabric outdoors. The designs produced are a combination of planning and serendipity and give the students a hands-on basis for future exploration in hand-coloring fabric.

Suitable for all levels.
Moderate physical activity involved (standing, walking, etc.).
