Lessons in Batik: White-Tailed Buck
Roaming the scenic mountain valleys and the plains of the the Midwest, you will find the White Tailed Deer. It is a beautiful animal. The stately buck has often been the subject of artistic masterpieces. In this project Sharon will teach students the art of Batik. Batik is an art medium that uses wax as a resist when dying material. This method of painting is widely used throughout Africa to dye material for clothing. Batiks are usually done on cotton material though rice paper has become popular the last couple years in the fine arts. The colors are added using watercolors, inks or dyes. In this project Sharon has chosen to use watercolors on rice paper. Join Sharon Hofer today and learn how to create fun and unique masterpieces using the Batik process!
