Abstract watercolor paintings will be created the first day using 10 different painting techniques that will leave the student with several paintings to work from. Techniques include, transparent layered shapes, tape resists, rubber cement drawing resist, washes, glazing, dropping in of colors, surface treatments using soap bubbles, rubbing alcohol and grids, etc. One painting will be chosen and cropped to find the most dynamic part. This will be drawn to make templates, then enlarged, and translated with fabrics into a quilt using either my turned edge technique or the students preferred technique. When the quilt is done it will look like a watercolor painting. No painting experience is needed.
