Lyric Kinard Lecture – Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2020 – The Elements of Art for Every Quilter – For GAAQG Members

On Tuesday, December 8, at 12:00 noon, the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild and Village Square Quilters (New York guild) have partnered to present Lyric Kinard’s virtual  lecture “The Elements of Art for Every Quilter.”  This lecture is free for GAAQG members.  There are 50 GAAQG spots available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Members must pre-register by logging in with their personal username and password and then going to the 2020 Guild Workshops Member Registration.

    Kick-start your creativity and learn about the basic elements and principles of good design. Learn why some colors fizz while others explode, why some quilts calm and some excite. Examples from every genre in the quilt world show how you can use a broader color palette to showcase your favorite blue, or more intentional methods for using differently scaled prints.
    This lecture will help you learn few simple tools from the artist’s kit that will help you take your work, whether traditional or contemporary, to the next level. Audience participation keeps viewers engaged after the lights go down and the gorgeous quilts go up on your screen.
    Lyric translates the language of ART into delightful and simple to understand concepts and presents them in such an entertaining and practical way that everyone goes home thinking, “I can do that!” She is on a crusade to convince every quilter that they can use the principles of art in whatever kinds of quilts they love to create.
