Painted Floor Cloths

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Painted Floor Cloths

Course Code: ARTS0151

Paint a canvas floor cloth that becomes a decorative, hardwearing, washable alternative to carpet. Art for the floor, these were the forerunner of linoleum. Experiment with a beautiful palette of colour; from intense, brilliant primaries, to soft summer hues and various textures. Using a simple technique, design a stencil for animal footprints, tribal motifs, fish, birds, patterns and textures. Paint cascading flowers, or print real leaf prints, rag roses, dots and stripes. Floor cloths make wonderful placemats, pet mats, and boot trays, and can be used everywhere drips happen since they can be wiped clean. Personal attention and group demonstrations will assist you in designing and creating your project. In addition, you will be guided through the process to develop a confident, creative working approach applicable to any art media.
