Silk Scarves for Mother’s Day

The past few weeks at PFA, the elementary students have been working on silk scarves for Mother’s Day gifts. I was blown away with how colorful and creative the scarves turned out. A few of the teens made scarves too and liked them too much to give away.

This process is a little bit easier than silk painting because the designs are not as intricate. We told the students to either repeat a simple pattern or just use color.


Before they began they briefly learned about complimentary colors and how mixing them together too much would turn the scarves brown so many of them focused on either cold or warm colors instead. The results were beautiful, I want one for myself!


We hope everyone had a great mother’s day and we can’t wait to see you all this week in the studio.  I hope you enjoy these pictures of the student’s creations!
