227 Class—Jumpstarting Your Creativity—Abstracting a Photograph
A fantastic one-day of an optional four-day long course on creativity—take as many as you desire from the series. There are two projects in this class. Using an inspirational photograph, make a 12in quilt by simplifying the forms for the first project then take that abstraction one step further by using the same inspirational photograph and creating it in geometric shapes. Use the colors from the photograph or, to make these even more abstract, you can use totally unexpected colors to really pack a punch. See related classes at 129 on Monday, 324 on Wednesday, and 418 on Thursday.
Supplies—scissors (fabric cutting); pins; glue stick; eraser; paper, pen & pencil; rotary cutter; rotary cutting mat (18in); rotary cutting ruler (18in); photos to inspire abstract designs. Fabric: pieces to support color scheme from light to dk (min of seven values of each color to be sorted into the seven value steps so several of each value is recommended)—these colors need not be the same as the photo as using unexpected colors adds to the abstractness; several 12.5in unfused sqs in asst values for backgrounds; asst colors and values fused and ready to use—more is always better.
