Abstract water color painting will be created the first day using 10 different painting techniques leaving students with several paintings to work from.

Techniques include, transparent layered shapes, tape resists, rubber cement drawing resist, washes, glazing, dropping in of colors, surface treatment using soap bubbles, rubbing alcohol and grids.

One painting will be chosen and cropped to find the dynamic part and be drawn to make templates, then enlarged and translated with fabrics into a quilt using either turned edge technique or students preferred technique.

When the quilt is finished it will look like a water color painting.  No painting experience needed.
