Three Watercolor Batik Workshops Scheduled!

Samish Girl ~ Watercolor Batik ~ 18 x 24
After last year's Watercolor Batik Workshops I conducted, I had a number of requests for MORE.  More on how to do figures, more on how to do larger pieces.  So, I have scheduled two "Advanced" Batik workshops and another "Basic" one for those who have recently become aware of watercolor batik as a medium. 

As you might know, watercolor batik is an age-old art form of layering watercolor and wax, only the more contemporary way to do this is on rice paper.  Several years ago, after reading an article by artist Kathie George about her more contemporary methods of doing watercolor batik, I tried it, showed my work and began offering workshops in Skagit and Whatcom Counties.   Students loved the concept and now want more.

So, there will be a "Basic" workshop at the Burlington Senior Center on Wednesday, October 3rd, from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, and an "Advanced" workshop at Dakota Art in Bellingham, on Saturday, November 10th, and another Advanced workshop at the Anacortes Senior Activity Center on Wednesday, November 14th from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm.  Please contact Dee at  for further information about the workshops!
