 IMG_5036Slow down to focus on the essence of your subject! Abstract & Simplify, 
Exaggerate, Repeat! Savor Nature’s tranquility; savor industrial shapes; interpret their patterns. 

Get viewers’ attention with Design Elements tricks & the THREE BEARS! Work with your photo (favorite locale or detail) that captures your attention; focus on the essence of your subject!

#1 Write a simple haiku, letting your photo introduce itself to you, not to read aloud!

#2 Construction paper exercise, seeing values AND the BIG shapes.

#3 Create a fabric collage by fusing your composition. Your mosaic of colors & values will give depth to your (Nature or Urban) landscapes.

Come to have fun! Throw angst out the window!

Paint, Stitch, Create Quilts

September 17-19, 2015 at the Longmont Museum
Deborah Fell

Registration will begin on June 15, 2015

deborah-fell-image-1Using pads of canvas paper, students will create small art quilts that can work in a series.  Emphasis will be on using design elements to make each piece relate to the other.  Students will first paint a wash on the canvas, choose multi-media elements which will connect each piece visually, add stitching and then finish the piece either by framing or quilting. 

Students will have the opportunity to create anywhere from 4-10 pieces depending on how fast they work and how long the workshop session is.

  • Beginner to Advanced
