Russian born artist, Natasha Foucault is a silk painting artist at the top of that game. Her work is bold and vivid; the brilliant colors shimmer on the silk. Her studio overlooking the San Francisco bay is filled with light. Growing up in Europe, many of Natasha’s art creations reflect street scenes and stories; however, now she has branched out to scenes of California. Her book “Silk Diary, An Artist’s Journey from Moscow to Mendocino”, co-authored with Jeanne-Michele Salander, combines a collection of her silk art, stories of her life and signature painting techniques.

Talented Natasha will guide students through the process of painting on silk using a resist to hold the dyes in place. This is a hands-on workshop where students will learn the gutta serti method of painting on silk. With no painting experience needed, students will be amazed at what they are able to create in this fun filled workshop.
