We will be sketching the urban landscape of downtown Chicago using pencil, pen, and watercolors. During this two and a half hour experience you will learn the basics of Urban Sketching and complete at least one piece of art work. I'll show you how to let your guard down and your inner artist out. During the cooler days, if it's raining, or snowing we'll sketch inside at one of the many Chicago architectural gems.

We'll meet at the Wrigley Building in downtown Chicago and introduce ourselves. We'll also have a chance to grab a snack or beverage there before starting. I like to get to know your experience and if you've sketched, drawn or painted before. This lets me tailor the experience.

Downtown Chicago in the Summer time is full of activities and always something new to see. We'll spend our time along the river walk and sketch the architecture, and hustle and bustle of downtown Chicago. We will sit at one or two different locations and I will help you as much as you'd like each step of the way.

In this class you will learn how to use gutta resist and silk paint to make a luminous silk hoop. These hoops look like stained glass when they are hung in a window and make a great addition to your home decor, or a gift.
I will have lots of designs for you to trace onto your hoop, or you can bring your own artwork to inspire you. This is a great project for someone who is a talented artist, but also for someone with beginning art skills.
I really love teaching the classes and meeting the interesting people who come to my house. I decided to share another craft that is easy to learn and which consistently produces beautiful results and so I am offering this silk painting class.

Painting on silk hoops is a nice introduction to the art of silk painting. In this class you will decorate an 8 inch silk disk. In the process, you will learn about resists and different types of paint.
When you apply paint to silk it spreads out like grape juice on a piece of tissue. You will be applying a resist to outline your design and contain the colors. You will then fill in the spaces with beautiful, translucent silk paint.
When you hang these disks in a window they glow like stained glass windows! This is a fun and meditative process and it can be used to create sophisticated images or simple designs. It is a perfect project for a mixed-age group of people and for people of varying art abilities. If you have a design you want to trace you can bring it with you.
You also can just work freehand and make your own picture. I'll have some sacred geometry stencils you can use. If you are not confident in your ability to apply gutta with a steady hand you can tell me ahead of time and I can have a hoop already prepared with a flower of life pattern and then you can just enjoy the painting part. We can communicate ahead of the class about your design, if you have questions.

Enjoy Soap Making With A Chicago Artisan!

I have been teaching soap classes for many years. I really enjoy sharing this fun activity and meeting new people. I am an occasional community blogger for Mother Earth News on many topics, including soap making. I have been really fortunate to meet many travelers to Chicago in the past ten years, as we rent two vacation rental properties.

This will either be a private lesson, or a small group lesson, depending on how many people sign up. Making soap is easy to do once you have made it with an expert. Otherwise it can be pretty daunting to try to learn on your own.
We will discuss the fascinating history of soap making, and then we will get to work. You will weigh the main oils—olive, coconut, and palm—and I’ll be in charge of the dangerous stuff. You can personalize your batch by selecting from a variety of scents and herbs. Your loaf of soap will weigh about 1.5 pounds, and after a few days it will be ready to cut into bars.
This is the size of a banana bread loaf, so you can cut as many slices of soap as you want from it, depending on thickness. You will leave here knowing how to make your own soap in the future, including recipes and resources, like where to find supplies. Feel free to bring a friend to the class and share your batch of soap.
You are welcome to BYOB and imbibe after the tricky stuff is complete.
Wear messy clothes. You will be measuring oils.
