You will start by learning about how colors interact with one another. Experiment with warm and cool colors working only with Q-Tips and paper towels.
After thirty minutes or so, you’ll soon graduate to tools like brushes and stencils on paper to practice a bit more before painting your own wearable art. Then you’ll start with a cap. And after gaining some confidence on a small canvas, you’ll move on to your shirt.
Some Kind Words About Our Workshop:
“So very interesting, learning about color and painting. Even though I am not the most artistic person, I enjoyed the time spent and came away with 2 beautiful shirts for myself. It certainly gives you an appreciation for Sloop’s creations that sell in the store. Great family activity!!”
-Excerpted from Trip Advisor Review, Jan ’14
“This is our third trip to see Sloop. Two years ago we took his workshop which was lots of fun. We painted beautiful shirts to remind us of our visit. We have gone back year after year to purchase quality island clothing that brings smiles to our faces after our return home. “

“The workshop exceeded my expectations…Highly recommended. What an amazing and inspired way to spend a beautiful morning on St. John.”

“Despite our mostly quiet concentration, the one sentiment I keep both hearing and saying is: “I could do this all day!”
…And we’re still on the paper towel exercise.”
