Program – Abstract Design Exercise with Lyric Kinard
This month we have a very special guest speaker attending our Zoom meeting. Lyric Kinard is a well-known artist, author, and quilter! You might have seen her on Quilting Arts. She is an award winning artist with a passion for sparking the creativity that she knows each of her students possess. With playful support and gentle encouragement she will take you through your first steps on a new path, seeing the world through the eyes of an artist. As an artist, author, and educator she transforms cloth into art in her studio and timid spirits into confident creatives in the classroom.
Lyric was recognized for her talents as the 2011 International Association of Professional Quilters Teacher of the Year and is the author of the book Art + Quilt: design principles and creativity exercises. She has written extensively for Quilting Arts Magazine, appeared on Quilting Arts TV, and The Quilt Show. In her past life she was a musician, earned a BA in English Literature from the University of Utah and has also formally studied architecture. She currently lives in Cary, North Carolina with her husband and some of their five children.
You can see what she’s been up to on her blog. Enjoy some of her great Covichats which are interviews with some famous quilters and artists from all over the world. Some of her guest have been Carole Lyles Shaw, Mel Beach, South African business owner Henneli Davie, Wendy Butler Berns, Joe Cunningham, Cristina Arcenequi from Seville, Spain, Victoria Fiindlay Wolfe, Jacquie Gering, Bonnie Hunter, Michelle Wilkie, Susan Brubaker Knapp, and many more. They are fun to listen to as you sew. You don’t want to miss her website… take a peek before Tuesday.

The elements of line, shape, and value will be explored as you generate a plethora of little thumbnails, jumping points for your own original modern designs.
