COURSE OVERVIEW • 5 SESSIONS
Art is a constant process of discovery. In this guided online workshop, you will have the opportunity to discover new ways of working with the elements and principles of design to develop greater sophistication in your own work. Each session will focus on a specific element and principle of design, and will be accompanied by relevant assignments that encourage experimentation and possibilities. With aesthetic and technical support, you will make a series of small experimental works rather than one large finished piece, and may choose to glue, fuse, stitch, or applique. Looking closely at the work of a variety of artists will give a deeper understanding of their visual language and how it can help in furthering your own approach to go beyond what you have always done.    
    
On class days, students should expect to spend the day working on their assignments and attending meetings between 9am and 5pm EST. Students will not spend the majority of their time in front of their screens. Each course is optimized to create a balance of screen time and work time.  Your instructor is located in South Africa and has a 7-hour time difference from EST.

ABOUT Rosalie Dace

I am obsessed with light and color, loving the rich contrasts resulting from the juxtaposition of cottons, silks, velvets, brocade, and sheers. I love traditional quilts but want my quilts to say something about their time and place in history and come directly from my life. As a teacher and artist, my aim is to fill my students with confidence and the excitement I feel about creating art in fabric and fiber. I aim to guide them in the direction of their interest in a non-threatening supportive environment so that they create more than they thought possible.
