Sue Benner's Class at Empty Spools - Excellent!

Sue's 'Composition Quartet' class was terrific!  She is a wonderful abstract artist and a great instructor.  The course outcome for each student was to complete one design project daily (for a total of 4 pieces over the course of four days).  Each piece was intended to lead to a new level of design work.

Day 1 Project:  Collage of 4.5 x 5.5" blocks with frames
Day 2 Project:  Curvilinear collage containing background, mid ground and foreground elements
Day 3 Project:  Rectangles of fabric deconstructed and reconstructed into pleasing designs
Day 4 Project:  Landscape collage

There was so much talent in my class of 24 students...just amazing! After intensive work on everyone's part (including late nights), there was an incredible array of colorful work that decorated the class design walls.

The photo below is of my first day's project.  All that is left to be done is to quilt it and add a binding.
