Creative Crisp Curves – Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves

An Intentional Improvisational class

In this class the students will piece a design with curves using freezer paper.

Students will love this simple yet stunning wall piece.

As artists we think of improvisation as a form of play which may lead toward discovery. Some new idea may be lurking in our subconscious, and by playing around with line or shape, color and value, order or layout, we may discover something new and wonderful that will bring our work to life.

This class is designed to help the student let go and work intuitively while learning to use precise curved piecing to create a unique, one of a kind design.
