Art Quilt Italy! 

31st July to 6th August 2013

 Rayna Gillman

 Bubbly Rayna,  is an award-winning artist whose work has appeared in galleries and museums across the U.S.   She works spontaneously, always bringing her intuitive sense of color and design into the work. An internationally known teacher, she infuses her students with a sense of play and encourages them to use the words “what if?” as they experiment in their own work. She was nominated for the Teacher of the Year Award in 2010 by Professional Quilter magazine.

Her best-selling book, Create Your Own Hand-Printed Cloth, published by C&T, was nominated for two book awards, and her second book, Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts, is already a runaway best seller that is motivating quilters to break free and create their own original work!

She is a member of the Surface Design Association, SAQA, and a juried member of the Art Cloth Network.

Rayna has appeared on national television as a featured artist on Simply Quilts, Quilting Arts TV, and has written for Quilting Arts, Quilters Newsletter, Art Quilting Studio, and online quilt publications..  Her work has been featured in many books and is in private collections in the U.S. and  Europe.

A word from Rayna

I have adapted this class especially for the Abruzzo.

You will go home with an original art quilt! 

Words, photos, color, and line will spark your creativity and inspire fresh work based on your adventure in Italy!  Working spontaneously, asking "what if"? you will capture the essence of the landscape, an element that catches your eye, the color around you, or any aspect of your Italian experience.

Day 1: Armed with cameras, we'll walk in the city or countryside, taking photos for inspiration. Then, working quickly and spontaneously using line, color, and free-form design, you will experiment with a number of small abstract studies based on your visual experience.

 Day 2: Studio time, sewing, group sharing & discussion, show-and-tell, optional critique if you are stuck, and time to explore and play. You may choose to expand a small study to a larger piece, continue working in a series, or try out a new idea you didn't have time for on day one. 

Days 3-5: Independent and guided studio where you will continue what you started or start something new and experiment with “what if?” Individual and group feedback, brainstorming, and” what if?” problem-solving. 

Discussions, as needed, on developing a series, and variations of color, value, and design. You will go home with work based on your Abruzzo experience, substantially in process or finished, and enhanced ability to do self-critique.
