 After School @ The Trailhead Children’s Museum 

Advanced Art: Batik Mondays

Learn the ancient and beautiful art of Batik!  We will explore Batik from Indonesia through a slideshow from traditional to modern styles.  In this Advanced Art Class students will learn how to apply hot wax and dyes to fabrics using a wax-resist technique.  Students will create original designs that they will use to draw with wax on fabric!  We will hand dye our fabric and observe how the wax resists the dye.  Students are encouraged to create their own original designs and we will have many examples for inspiration.  Join us and create your own Batik wall hangings, prayer flags, and t-shirts in beautiful designs and vibrant colors!
