Self Portrait Painting Workshop with Vicki Damon

Location:  Ralph’s Art Supply, 1420 Highland Ave.,
September 27, 11:30 – 4:30
This class will be an in-depth silk painting workshop focusing on portraiture.
We will use the techniques necessary to mix paint on the silk to create skintone. We will also focus on shadow, and detailing that makes a silk portrait so unique.
The portrait silk size is 22x22. You must bring your own portrait to paint. Please consider using a larger portrait size, for we will be focusing on details. Also think about using a portrait that includes shadows and some props such as hat, flower, glasses, etc.
You will also paint a silk scarf using a different technique that will allow you to paint a somewhat impressionistic painting right onto your silk. It is amazing what you can create by using this technique. 
The cost of this class is $100.00; with a $50 deposit required to hold your space. All materials are provided; stretchers, stainless pins, all silk, all dyes, resists, brushes, etc.
Please let Vicki Damon know if you are interested in taking this class.
If you have any questions regarding this workshop or would like to sign up, contact Vicki Damon at or call at
