If becoming a quilt artist is your heart’s desire then this class can help you get there. Let accomplished quilt artist, author and instructor, Heather Thomas, provide you with invaluable lessons that can help you cross the chasm from relying on the instructions of others to relying on your own skill set and artistic inclinations.

Heather has written and taught extensively with an emphasis on color & design. In this class she will provide you with a hearty introduction to color theory and how to utilize the elements and principles of design.

She will teach you the importance of learning technique and mastering the ones that you rely on most. She will help you find and listen to your own unique visual language and show you how you can refine that language into one that the average viewer can understand and appreciate. She will show you how to build a good composition and understand the three basic building blocks of great design; balance, unity and variety. Finally, Heather will introduce you to the idea of working in a series and how it can greatly increase your skill set, product output and build artistic maturity.

Taking your work from the craft level to the art level asks you to be brave and rely on your own unique vision, in this class Heather will help you achieve your goals by providing you with many of the tools you need to succeed.
