About the instructor:

Patty Aker has worn many hats at the Arts Center: member, volunteer, docent, and instructor. Her current work as a fiber artist sprang from a commission for a baptismal banner for her church that spurred a successful business venture with silk, Gaelic Sands. Her favorite part of the Arts Center? “It surrounds me with enthusiastic art-centered people and provides me with drive, opportunities, and inspiration for my work.” Painting and sharing art experiences, learning new techniques, and teaching silk painting workshops are a crucial part of her world.
