Three day class: March 16,17 & 18, 2018, 10 am to 4:30 pm
Instructor: Jeanette DeNicolas Meyer
Class requires a $15 kit which is included in the price of the class.
Jeanette teaches in the studio school of the Oregon College of Art and Craft and she has led workshops in New Zealand, Canada, and throughout the United States. Her work has appeared in many publications and she has participated in national and international group and solo shows. Teaching others how to use cloth, and stitch in an expressive way is an extension of the artwork that she creates. Jeanette's teaching style creates a classroom that is a safe place where students combine their knowledge of "how to" with discoveries of "what if?"
Artists who choose the quilt as their medium often express a desire to learn more about the basics of design but may hesitate to take a design class weighted toward drawing and painting techniques. This class explores the design and emotional possibilities of line, color, and texture through engaging assignments using art supplies with which we're comfortable and adept—fabric, needle, thread, fusible adhesives, paper and glue sticks. Class exercises and slide presentations will help participants learn to confidently manipulate the basic elements of design to enrich their own art practices, and have some serious fun while they are at it!
