Instructor: Brenda Foehrkolb
Sunday, March 22, 2015
This class is an introduction to Baltimore Painted Screens, covering their place in folk art history, and how they are used today in both traditional and modern ways. Instructor Brenda Foehrkolb will go over the history of how this art form began 100 years ago, and how it is unique to Baltimore.
Students would learn to prepare their screen for painting, using primer and basecoat to ensure longevity and durability and review organizing the design and setting up the work space for screen painting. Brenda will discuss suitable types of paints available for this application and the traditional colors used.
Each student should bring a screen, approx. 20″ x 30″, clean and dust-free. (Screens will be available for purchase from the instructor for around $20 Paints, brushes, and table coverings for classroom use will be provided. Students will paint a traditional scene – with a red-roofed cottage, billowy clouds, flowers, and a pond with swans.
