TECHNIQUES OF THE ART QUILT
Lecture/slide show which includes an overall discussion of Marilyn’s method of making realistic portraits and art quilts. Slides include a step-by-step presentation of one of the artist’s quilts. A trunk show of selected quilts accompanies the talk.(one hour)
POSTERIZING AND LINE DRAWING FOR FABRIC PORTRAITS
Learn to prepare a posterized image from a photograph, and produce a line drawing for transference to muslin, in preparation for applique in making realistic portraits. No drawing skills needed, just a basic understanding of computer operation (demo only-not hands-on). Bring a photograph that you are contemplating using for making a realistic portrait. There will be grab-bag selections of your photos for the posterization demo and the line drawing. Discussion of the pros and cons of using the photo selected by you will take place after the demo (as time allows).
