About This Activity

Create unique and fabulous works of art, including mixed-media wearable art that tells a story! We’ll look at animals, nature, and artists as inspiration for colorful works on fabric. Express yourself through hands-on projects that incorporate block printing and monotype on fabric, embroidery, sun printing and painting on fabric, and screenprinting. We’ll practice drawing from life, design patterns, and learn about textiles and simple artmaking techniques using paint, ink, fabric markers, and more. Create unique long-lasting works of art in the spirit of expressing yourself in wearable art! Instructor: Natalie Palms Natalie Palms is a multidisciplinary artist, working primarily in textiles. She studied Art and Social Behavioral Studies in her hometown of Los Angeles before moving to Oakland. She received her BFA in Individualized Studies at California College of the Arts in 2015. Upon graduating, she began teaching K-8th art in numerous schools throughout the Bay Area. As a multiracial woman, creating a classroom environment focused on social-emotional learning, anti-racism, and sharing culturally diverse artists is important to her. She has recently launched her own business creating accessories she hand-dyes and prints while curating and leading textile-focused workshops for children and adults throughout the Bay Area. Natalie currently teaches at Kala’s After School Studio program.
