Paint on Fabric

“A Patch of Color” Learn to Paint on Fabric


Famous Harlem Artist, Aleathia Brown will teach you how to paint on sustainable fibers CUT from home. YOU will be cutting a small rectangular primed and painted swatch of fabric.  These can come from a cotton button down shirt, an old bed sheet or some unused denim. By repurposing we make art sustainable on a small wearable frame-worthy miniature fabric. 

With a whimsical silhouette and 3 colors that tell a beginning, middle and end visual story, participants will make a wearable art with purpose. You can flow in an abstract color-filled way.

The patch that YOU create will have color and pizzazz and a silhouette or two. We will use acrylic screen paint so that each patch is a washable, wearable, frame-worthy miniature masterpiece welcoming creatives or non-artists.
