Open to all skill levels
This class combines painting and quilting. Using Acrylic paint the students will create layers of imagery onto thin canvas, applying fused fabrics and many layers of thin fluid acrylic paint. A color scheme is chosen and two to three canvases are painted within that color scheme. Then these canvases are cut apart and combined to create a complex composition. The reconstructed canvas is then layered with batting and backing and stitched. These stitched pieces can then be stretched on a frame ready to hang or inserted into a quilt of the same design to create a many textured creation.
