Camp Kala • Fabric Fun and Colorful Creations! • Ages 6-11

Let’s look at animals, nature, and artists as inspiration for colorful works on fabric! Explore color, shape, pattern, and texture to create fun projects such as your own painted soft sculpture, indigo-dyed batik backpack fabric, weaving, and a mixed-media wearable art piece that tells a story. We’ll learn about textiles and simple artmaking techniques using paint, ink, glue, fabric markers, and more. Create unique long-lasting works of art, including collaborative artworks with other campers, and continue the summer expressing yourself unlimitedly!

About the Instructor:

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.
