Journey into color mastery by creating illusions and tricking the eye. Color is one of the most exciting things about art and quilting, and yet it’s easy to feel unsure about our choices. By understanding how we see color and then creating illusions with color, students can develop color confidence and giddy enjoyment.
In this class, learn to define and use basic color theory terminology; apply the principles of additive and subtractive color as they relate to vision, light, and the physical world; create mutable color illusions; create a color palette with afterimage effects; and create transparency illusions including a complex transparency illusion with more than two overlapping shapes and textures.
Students will learn to create three different categories of color effects: mutable color, transparency, and afterimage effect. This three-hour class is a no-sew class with instructive lecture, discussion, and ample time for practice and personal attention.
Skill level: 🎨
This is a color class. No sewing required! No color theory required!
We will send you the supply list with your class confirmation.
About the instructor:
Karen Bolan is a quilter in Santa Rosa, California. She is drawn to the layers of design and expression possible in quilting, and loves the learning that comes from experimenting. She endeavors to find efficiencies in process and material use. Her designs are out of the box, and integrate a love of geometry, experimentation, interconnection, depth, and texture. Her work has been featured in magazines including Curated Quilts, Modern Quilt Guild Journal, Make Modern, and Modish Quilter, and her quilts have been exhibited at local and international quilt shows including Pacific International Quilt Festival and QuiltCon.

They opened Bay Quilts to share their passion and knowledge with the vision of creating a community where artists, crafters, quilters, and makers of all ability can learn, grow, and create together.
