Silk Scarf Painting


Milwaukee - Wisconsin - US

MILWAUKEE - April 10, 2014 - PRLog -- Experienced and budding artists have an opportunity to discover how their thoughts, designs, and inspirations can be beautifully reflected onto a silk scarf.  “Reflections With Silk,” a meditative art therapy workshop sponsored by the School Sisters of St. Francis, will provide the perfect time for quiet contemplation and imagination on Saturday, June 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., in St. Joseph Center, 1501 S. Layton Blvd. (Greenfield Ave. at 27th St.), Milwaukee.

This event will be led by Alverno College instructor, artist, and art therapist Rosemary Pearson, MSAT, LPC-TL. Ms. Pearson’s primary goal for art making is discovery of self and an energy larger than one’s self, as well as the connection between the two.

Ms. Pearson believes that art is the work of, and essential to, the development of the soul. Seasoned artists or others who simply want to experiment will find plenty to engage their creative spirit, and everyone ages 15 and up is welcome, regardless of art experience.

Advance registration is required to ensure that enough materials are special-ordered. (Note:  The scarf is a silk/wool fabric.) The fee of $35 covers instruction and all supplies. To register for “Reflections With Silk,” please contact Donna O’Loughlin, Coordinator of Collaboration and Service, at 414-385-5272 or email

Ample free parking is available in the School Sisters’ private parking lot at 29th Street and Orchard Street (one block south of Greenfield Avenue).
