VA Museum of Fine Arts Workshop 3-18-15

On Wednesday, March 18, 2015, Lakeland High School hosted a “Virginia Museum of Fine Arts” workshop.  Artist Mary Swezey taught students from Nansemond River, King’s Fork High, and Lakeland techniques on Chinese Silk Painting.  Students examined images found in traditional Chinese art including bamboo, fish, birds and Chinese characters.  The students learned a liquid resist technique with brilliant fabric paint.  Each student created an original silk scarf.

The artist workshops are sponsored by the Suffolk Art League.  Each year, four workshops are provided and hosted by each of the area high schools. Selected students from each high school are invited to attend.
