Silk Scarves for Mother’s Day

The past few weeks at PFA, the elementary students have been working on silk scarves for Mother’s Day gifts. I was blown away with how colorful and creative the scarves turned out. A few of the teens made scarves too and liked them too much to give away.

This process is a little bit easier than silk painting because the designs are not as intricate. We told the students to either repeat a simple pattern or just use color.

Before they began they briefly learned about complimentary colors and how mixing them together too much would turn the scarves brown so many of them focused on either cold or warm colors instead. The results were beautiful, I want one for myself!

We hope everyone had a great mother’s day and we can’t wait to see you all this week in the studio.  I hope you enjoy these pictures of the student’s creations!

Elementary Silk Paintings

The Elementary Art Class has been working on silk paintings and I am so impressed by the art that my youngest students, some of them only seven years old, create.

Silk painting involves a lot of patience and flexibility as the paint does not always go where you want, but as you can tell, students excelled and created beautiful paintings anyways.

I was very inspired by the use of color and creativity that the students displayed in their paintings, and hope these images brighten up your day.
