     Cancelled  From Inspiration to Abstraction


                                 

    You CAN use an existing piece of art to inspire your own original creation. In this class, students will come to class with pictures of OTHER people’s artwork — paintings, sculptures, buildings or even another quilter’s art. We will discover ways of looking at the work and extracting ideas that will inspire us to create something entirely original.

    Cancelled  Inspiration vs Emulation: Finding Inspiration in Existing Works of Art

      

    Heather Pregger often finds existing works of art to be a wonderful source of inspiration. There is always something about a painting, sculpture, or quilt that can ignite the imagination. The process of creating an original composition inspired by an existing artistic vision is both challenging and rewarding. Heather will share her methods and her resulting art quilts.

    Down the Rabbit Hole

         


    Expect to be reacquainted with your imagination in this special workshop. We will use a variety of experiences specifically designed to reconnect you with your unique creative self. This is not a “how to” class, but a hands on trip down the rabbit hole in search of each participant’s creative potential.

    Students need a sketchbook, nothing specific and inexpensive markers. There is a $15/student fee for my book which we will use in the afternoon.

    Participants make small whole cloth paintings, learning to use different materials for making marks on fabric.
