Batik painting course at Nafa: Third class for 2007~ by kamaldollah on Nov 28, 2007.
My current group of students learning batik painting at Nafa are six pretty ladies. Which is a natural phenomenon because traditionally batiking is a ladylike skill. During ancient times, a Javanese woman prides herself for being able to produce beautiful batik for herself and the family. However, don’t be discouraged if you are a man, there is really no gender or racial limitation to this technique, just practical preferences. Like cooking, most great chefs are men whilst women does it everyday.
This part-time art enrichment course runs over 8 evening sessions which will conclude on 26th December. It covers basic to intermediate skills in batik painting techniques. If you are keen to sign up for the programme, please enquire with Nafa’s continuing education department or call 6512 4214 / 6512 4216.
Sign up early for the new class which begins on 30th January 2008.
