Still Life

I am sure you have all heard of the Masters in art, such as Alfred Sisley, Renoir, Dario Campanelli and Monet with their famous still life paintings. In this class we will learn to transform similar still life using textiles. We begin by learning to make templates from a photo, which I have supplied or you may use your own. Step by step instructions guide you how to do this with ease using the free graphic program, GIMP. Use graduates of color to create dimension in your still life and then enhance it with thread work. Our final lesson includes enhanced features that you can add to your still life images such as shadows and reflections. We attach your still life form to a suitable background and then finish it off by stretching it over stretcher bars or bind it off like a regular quilt. There are many possibilities and everyone will create a unique masterpiece for their self.
