Batik is a centuries old technique traditionally done on fabric using hot wax as a resist and multiple layers of dye.  The modern approach to Batik can be done on rice paper and has many similarities to the centuries-old craft. Layers of hot wax and paint are applied to the paper to create beautiful paintings. Experience with watercolor is helpful but not required.  This is a beginning class available to all level of adult students.  


  This class will explore the basic techniques and tools needed to create beautiful batik paintings on paper.  Students can expect to be guided through the process of creating two paintings using this technique.  Classes will be posted by Tuesday 9 am on ZOOM.  And additional support and the occasional live session on Facebook will be offered in a private Facebook group.  All content will be recorded and available to students for the duration of the class and through the end of 2020.  


Bio:


Laura is a Colorado native, artist, wife and mother.   She lives in Aurora with her family and their dog, Zoe.  After many years of exploration, Laura’s preferred artistic medium is batik on rice paper with water media.  One of the world’s oldest art forms, the intriguing process of batik, dates back over 2, 000 years ago in Asia, India, and the Far East and is traditionally done on paper. 

Today, as a contemporary fine artist, Laura creates paintings using a technique she calls watercolor batik.  The batik process has many phases and all are integral to the creation of her “one of a kind” paintings. Laura has worked exclusively in the media for 7 years. 


Laura’s art is focused on creation, evolution, and the many phases and cyclical nature of life. She paints abstracted images from nature in an impressionistic style leaving the viewer to complete the image and connect on a more personal level with her art.
