Create intuitive whole cloth art quilts about life 
around you, using fabric paints, markers, and 
optional airpen. Reconnect to your inborn ability to 
create  spontaneously, while drawing, painting, and 
possibly writing in your stories of today in a small 
starter painting and a second larger piece you’ll quilt 
in class. Sketchbook work will lead to the stories 
and images for our class projects.  Instead of 
judging your work, switch to enjoying the thrill of 
taking art risks, which turn into leaps of creative 
freedom.  I's fine if you thing you can't draw, 
paint, or write. 
 In this class you'll find it easy to express yourself, 
like you did when you were little. 
Artists must provide supplies. A supply list will be  
provided when the workshop meets the minimum  
registration requirement.
