Abstract-A-Licious Student Spotlight

April 16, 2019

I recently taught at the Gulf States Quilt Associations’ biennial seminar down near new Orleans. As always – it was great fun. I honestly think there must be some sneaky little person who weeds out all the bad students when people enroll for my classes because I only get the best ones!

Each of these student works were created entirely from the creator’s mind. No pattern or preconceived ideas before they come into class.

All morning long students work on design exercises that are easy, concrete, and perfect for beginners or confident creators alike. Each of the exercises teaches a little bit about the elements of art and helps students to spill out idea after idea after spark of idea.

None of those ideas are complete. They are seeds that need nurture in order to grow. In the afternoon we choose one of those ideas and create a study, a working sample so that we can work together through the design process.

I’m always wonderfully happy to see what people create. There are so many great designs. They are STUDIES, not finished works. I call them that because the most important thing we do in class is LEARN. We learn design exercises, the design process, and especially skills that help them to analyze a composition .

If you are interested in learning the same things, check out my schedule here, or the Abstract-A-Licious course online. (Next scheduled course begins September 9, 2019.)
