Matisse said his cutting process is like drawing with scissors. Bring YOUR very SIMPLE design ideas: in your visual journals, clippings, sketchbooks and magazine pages (with index card view finders). Collage exercises offer a ROAD MAP to test design & value ideas in small paper projects. By tearing, altering, layering (fuse or glue) while exploring colors, values, shapes & visual textures. FIRST work in paper, in an encouraging atmosphere, throw angst out the window! Collage is trial & error composing, no expectations, for fun and exploration. Small playful studies will lead to fabric quilts; can be created as ONE large image or worked in MULTIPLE blocks. We will talk about Design Elements tricks & the THREE BEARS for unique, personal ways to create, to listen to“your intuition,” to simplify AND work shorter time by working in larger images for compositions.

Deborah Fell – Paint, Stitch, Create Quilts

Deborah Fell

September 17-19, 2015 at the Longmont Museum


Registration will begin on June 15, 2015


If you’re looking for a workshop to stretch you gently out of your comfort zone, this class provides the perfect opportunity.

Work with a different approach, a different format, and different materials to create pieces of art on a new level. Using pads of canvas paper, you will create small art quilts that can work in a series. Emphasis will be on using design elements—line, shape, color—to make each piece relate to the others. A variety of techniques/materials will be employed, including paint, layering, mixed media, stamps and stencils, paper, found objects, stitching, and organic mark-making.
