I had such a lovely day with 23 young people (primary school age) at Burnie Regional Art Gallery. I am impressed, as I am sure you will be, with the silk paintings they did. FANTASTIC!!!! We did not use gutta to draw shapes to fill in with colour. Instead I wanted them to Go with the Flow (title of the workshop) using the free flowing dyes in watercolour technique. They handled this well without muddying the colours. It is quite a challenge for young people who generally like an illustrative style. They all understood and I am proud of the way they approached the task and the results obtained. Each child chose one favorite of their 3 small paintings to mount into a card for a professional looking finished product.
