Instructor: Jeannette DeNicolis Meyer
(Class fee includes $15 supply fee)
Friday, Saturday & Sunday, April 12,13 & 14, 2019, 10 am to 4:30 pm
Jeannette's attempts to make each quilt as simple, essential, and direct as she can. She wants viewers to be able to visually enter her quilts and walk through fields of color to the still, contemplative space within.
Jeannette's quilts have been shown in national and international exhibitions and featured in many publications as well as being represented in a number of public and private collections. Jeanette teaches, lectures and writes about art quilts and surface design.
One of the more interesting ways to think about color is to think about it in terms of the company it keeps. It is important to figure out why that seemingly vibrant pink just dies when sewn to that lovely blue. This class approaches color use as a choice of hue, value, temperature, intensity and complimentary contrasts. Class exercises and illustrated talks will give you the experience and confidence to use color contrasts to invigorate your quilts. Students will enrich their own art practices while learning to confidently manipulate color as a design element– and have some serious fun while they're at it.
