This month La Jolla Art Association will feature artist Julie Sanderson who will be demonstrating how to paint on silk. "Silk is the newest medium I have been exploring. The shimmering surface of silk and vibrant colors of fiber-reactive dyes seem a great way to share my scuba diving experiences. Diving as deep as 120 feet to explore old wrecks, beautiful fish and interesting creatures, I gather images and inspiration. For reference, I use my husband’s radiant underwater photographs taken on our trips around the world. Silk is also a perfect medium for flowers, other images and wearable art."

Registration is required. For further information and to register, please contact the Center at 858-459-0831 or click here to register via email.
