Try canvas shoes, backpacks or other items. Includes step-by-step introduction to techniques of painting, designing with masks and stencils, and texturing with rubbings. 

This class includes: 1) an introduction to using regular and iridescent color paintstiks  on different colored sample fabrics and  2) practice painting: single and multi-color designs using rubbing plate patterns, designs of soft stripe patterns, designs using stencils that you make, designs using masks made from strips of tape

You will need to pick out and bring all your own fabrics and objects to paint.  Joann's has a nice selection of fabrics; Walmart and Michels have some bargain prices on fabric and T-shirts. You will need at least 10 pieces of fabric.
