Class Content: Barn Quilts have been a staple of Appalachian culture for centuries. Originally created on large pieces of wood, they took the block patterns from quilts and recreated them in very bright and bold colors which was then placed on the sides of their barns to signal to others which family the barn belonged to. It is now used as a form of traditional decoration and crafts still seen in the deep Appalachia’s as well as in local county fair competitions.
Lessons: For this class we will be creating artwork from papers, paints and your personal ephemera (optional) to create your very own quilt-inspired mixed media piece on a 16″ x 16″ substrate. The goal is to create a piece that expresses who you are as an individual! I will guide you through the process of making a barn quilt from choosing the pattern, color palette and collaging materials! We will be painting, taping, collaging, and much more. Anything you can think of to add we can do! Family photos, written works, old art? The goal is to create a beautiful mixed media piece in the style of a barn quilt that is unique for you!
Supply List: Included in the price is a 16 x 16 primed panel as the substrate (similar to Ampersand’s artist panel).

Biography: I am a professional mixed media artist in Knoxville, TN and I am currently working as one of the assistant managers at Jerry’s Artarama. I have a bachelors of arts in Graphic Design from Maryville College. I have participated in a numerous number of regional art shows, the most current being the Regional Dogwood Arts Show. I have also started teaching at a variety of centers throughout the area due to the fact I am an art supply fanatic and want to spread my knowledge of arts and crafts. If it is an art or craft I have probably done it! My goal as an artist is to make sure everyone I meet knows the joys of art!
