Jason says:
"The Art of Textile Collage
This class will be provide a lively and innovative approach to textile collage and
mark-making using fusing and hand and machine stitching, in addition to
drawing and painting tools.

You will repurpose and create patterned and painted small fabric and paper
compositions. Harmony and dissonance, rhythm and mood, color and texture will
be the vocabulary you explore to expand your personal visual language with
expressive, communicative content."
