Dying Silk Scarves with Sharon Gellerman

Dying Silk Scarves with Sharon Gellerman

Oct 9, 1:00pm - Oct 9, 4:00pm

Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a workshop, Dyeing Silk Scarves with Sharon Gellerman.

Sharon Gellerman is a local artist who creates one-of-a-kind, hand-marbled, silk scarves and silk tallits. Sharon has a fresh and modern interpretation of the classical art of marbling on fabric. Through experimentation with color, technique and dye, she has refined her style and designs.

Her sense of art has been greatly influenced by memories of Israel and her love of the California Coast. These elements are reflected in the intricate patterns and vibrant colors of her textile designs. These complex designs and skillful use of color make each scarf or tallit a unique and wearable piece of art.

Marbled silk scarves are made by layering colorful dyes onto a solution of water and cellulose. This process allows the dyes to float above the liquid. Using custom made combs or rakes, the layers of color are then manipulated into unique designs. When the fabric is placed on top of the composition and absorbs the dye colors, it transfers onto the silk scarf, creating the marbling affect.

If you’ve ever wanted to make your own hand-dyed silk scarfs or just want to see how it’s done, this is the workshop for you. Students will get to take home one finished scarf and 2 or 3 handkerchiefs.

The World of Needle Arts

The World of Needle Arts

Nov 14, 3:00pm - Nov 14, 5:00pm

Art Center Morro Bay835 Main StMorro Bay, CA93442 Map

Morro Bay Art Association is proud to present a free demo in the fine art of Needlework with artists, Debra Cobb and Sue Melvin.

Join us for an afternoon of learning about the fine art of needle work. Debra and Sue will cover the history of needle work, type of canvas and fabrics used, variety of threads, needles and other tools. Samples of various needle work techniques, such as needlepoint, cross-stitch, surface embroidery, satin ribbon embroidery, beading, bargello, hardanger, pulled thread, etc.

This is the Morro Bay Art Association’s monthly meeting and free art demonstration.

About Instructors:
Debra Cobb is a self-taught embroiderer, beginning with purchased needlepoint and cross stitch kits. Over time, Debra’s other hobby as a medieval re-enactor encouraged, improved and developed her stitching skills using various textiles. A firm believer that one never stops learning, Debra took classes from the Embroiderer’s Guild of America, the Royal School of Needlework, Lucy Barter, and YouTube. Basically, wherever and whenever she could find them. “Although I enjoy working with silk threads, I love the bling, so adding goldwork, beads and gemstones is natural for many of my pieces. Over the past 5 years, I have enjoyed creating small handbags using my own designs. Some of these have been entered in exhibitions by the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design. I have also enjoyed teaching classes in needlework. Currently, my husband and I are collaborating on art pieces using medieval illumination and embroidery. Although some consider embroidery a lost art, I have dedicated myself to reviving this age-old practice so that it can be worn, touched, manipulated, gifted and re-interpreted.”

Sue Melvin was a slow bloomer when it came to the Needle Arts. Even though Sue has a B.A. in home economics and taught high school clothing for 5 years, she dabbled in cross-stitch and surface embroidery for years. It wasn't until she joined the Bishop's Peak Chapter of the Embroiderer's Guild of America (EGA) that she was awakened to the amazing world of Needle Art. Since joining the chapter in 2007, Sue has been exposed to a variety of stitch work and techniques. She has been very involved with the chapter, holding various offices including president. Sue has taught several classes to the chapter members and friends and has participated in some demos at the Mid-State Fair. Sue continues to expand her knowledge and techniques by taking on-line classes and seminars offered by EGA. It's a fun and rewarding hobby that she thoroughly enjoys and strives to encourage those who might be interested.

This free art demonstration is open and free to the public. Drop-ins are encouraged.

In this oil painting workshop, participants will get an inside look into Warren Chang’s art practice and learn how to paint a head to final painting, using a limited palette.

Warren will teach the fundamentals of Light and Shadow and how this applies to painting a portrait, demonstrating painting a head of a live model. Students will be able to get feedback directly from Warren, ask questions in an intimate class setting, and follow along with demos. This workshop will cover how to construct a human head and learn how light falls on form with regard to value and edge relationships. In addition, Warren will share his unique limited palette in applying color in the Old Masters style. Students will focus on drawing the human head and creating life-like skin tone colors.
Warren will give a slide presentation revealing his process of creating his unique narrative paintings. By the end of this 2-day workshop, each participant will have a final painting inspired by Warren’s unique approach to painting that gives a window into his practice.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Warren Chang graduated the Art Center College of Design in 1981 and after 20 years as an award winning illustrator, embarked in a career in fine art in 2000. His work has been recognized nationally and profiled in many art publications, including the covers of American Artist and International Artist magazines accompanying a series of 8 articles on instructional painting he authored. He is the subject of a 112 page monograph book titled: Warren Chang: Narrative Paintings published by Flesk Publications in 2013. He has been honored with solo exhibitions at the Monterey Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art and most recently at the Triton Museum in 2021. His paintings are in the permanent collection of the Monterey Museum of Art and the Hilbert Museum of California Art in Orange, Ca.

Awards include "Best of Show" at the Salon International 2003 held in San Antonio Texas, Southwest Art Award in 2008 and the Fine Art Connoisseur Award for painting in 2009, both from the California Art Club, 1st Place in the Raymar Online Art Contest in 2010 and the Dean Cornwell Award for Multi Figure Composition from the California Art Club in 2013. He is a Signature member of the California Art Club and a Master Signature member of the Oil Painters of America.

Mr. Chang’s subjects include biographical interiors and genre scenes of the fieldworkers of Monterey County where he grew up. His paintings portray the human condition, sometimes the disenfranchised while at the same time celebrating the human spirit.

Learn about drawing, values and composition in a workshop designed to create in a relaxed, informative yet focused environment for all skill levels. This workshop will feature live models. A supply list will be provided upon registration.

Warren Chang is planning a free lecture and book signing, following his workshop! Don’t miss a rare opportunity to learn more about Mr. Chang and take home a signed book!

This workshop will focus on healing trauma, including childhood abuse (emotional, physical and sexual) and adult trauma (domestic violence, emotional abuse, sexual assault) as well as the loss of a loved one or other types of trauma. Focusing on artistic expression as a healing tool, Beverly, a licensed psychotherapist, will offer strategies, prompts, demonstrations and guidance to help you safely identify and express your emotions of fear, anger, sadness, and shame, heal the damage caused by trauma, and create a positive future.
This will be a safe yet powerful workshop that can help you process unexpressed emotions and move through stuck places in your recovery.
