CREATE Mixed Media Retreat in Rosemont, IL

Dreaming in Canvas:  A Painted Quilt; Leslie Tucker Jenison and I taught a 6-hour class where students painted 2 large canvases, changing seats every 15 minutes to create two very wonderful, vibrant and amazing works of art, which are cut up and portions are given to each student to make a small art quilt with.   We had a tremendous class - it was truly a great experience.
