The Artist in You (Presentation by Susan Brubaker Knapp)

Tue, Jul 30, 2024 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Description

The Artist in You is a one-hour digital slide show and trunk show. I describe my personal journey from that of a traditional quilter to an artist who makes both traditional quilts and art quilts. I start with a digital slideshow, which shows my work and some of the techniques I use. The focus is on ways for traditional quilters to become more creative by embracing their own “inner artist.” It is my goal to inspire and encourage quilters to try making an art quilt for several reasons: to challenge themselves, to unleash their innate creativity, to learn new techniques, to discover things about themselves through art, and to share their view of the world with others. There will be an opportunity to view quilts and ask questions.

Class Fee: $45.00 Presentor: Susan Brubaker Knapp
