Suzanne Punch

Teaches at Art Studios @ JCC Manhattan

Since 1984, Suzanne Punch has been pushing the boundaries of the ancient medium of painting on silk. Bringing a fine art sensibility to the interaction of dyes and resists on silk has become her mission, opening up new possibilities of painterly expression. Her work is seen across the United States, in England and Japan, in gallery, private and museum settings. Wearables are in boutiques specializing in artist's creations for the body. Teaching intensive workshops has become part of her work to engage more artists to see their own potential on silk.

The class was excellent. I especially enjoyed the words of inspiration at the beginning. It gave me the freedom to do me . Suzanne was extremely helpful.

This clan was very fun, and I ended up with a beautiful scarf at the end! A things to keep in mind: first, you’re working with dyes, so wear old clothes! Second, these scarves need to be set with steam for a few hours, so you won’t be able to take yours home immediately. You’ll be able to either pay Suzanna a few dollars to have it mailed to you, or you can pick it up at her home.

This class was hands-on from beginning to end. Ms. Punch did a general overview of the medium we would be working with. She was always there to provide guidance when necessary. I was very satisfied with this class and will do it again in March.

I loved the teacher and the group of students. The class was small and the supplies were excellent. The teacher provided visual materials for inspiration as well as demonstration and feedback tailored to the individual students' needs and desires. The class was a total pleasure and I hope to take it again sometime!

Love it. Suzanne is amazing! I feel so happy with the teacher and my classmates. It was an 8-hour class, when I finished my piece I can't imagine how time flies.
