A Culturally Wealthy Group of Women

27 March 2010 at 8:32 am 1 comment


The OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         most recent silk painting group at Pullen Art Center was an especially great class, since the group included women whose countries of origin ranged from Denmark, Greece, Israel, Poland, France, and Russia.   It was a culturally wealthy, not to mention very talented group of women!  They hit the ground running, so eager to get started, and made wonderful things in and out of class.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         It’s always mesmerizing to me to watch the way color floats across the silk.  It was such a gift to watch each of these women get hooked on the process.  I’m always tempted to say, “the first one’s free,” at the initial class, as if I’m offering something illicit.

I really hope you all keep up the good work – you’re all so talented!  You’ve encouraged me to work on proposals for continuing and advanced classes at Pullen Arts!
