Van Gogh's Night Out! We'll experiment with the color possibilities that all quilters encounter, taking a different approach to finding colors that will work together, but doing it with canvas and paint. I will demonstrate a playful approach to finding colors that will work and perhaps you can try something that is out of your comfort zone. It's a fun project for you and your families as well. So tune in to take part of just watch to experience your own inner Van Gogh!
If you wish to participate during the ZOOM meeting you will need:
* A primed canvas (8x10 or a little larger)
* 5 or more small tottles of craft paine (Delta Creamcoat is recommended, purchase at Joann's or Michael's). Please choose high contrasting colors and you may include metallics.
* 1 plastic 6 oz. cup, a kitchen trash bag and latex gloves (this can get messy!)
*** Bea Mandel will send a ZOOM invite a few days before the meeting. Please contact her if you have questions or need assistance.
