Wool Snapshots: Learning about Color and Value by Hooking Personal Photos
April DeConick is well known for zonalism, a technique she developed that concentrates on hooking images based on value (lightness/darkness) and color (warm/cool hues). This technique results in beautiful impressionist hooked mats of people and animals, using photographs as inspiration. In this class, students will provide a digital photo which April will use to create a pattern and visuals. Students will work on a 7” by 7” mat which can be finished in one of two ways, either mounted on a canvas or mounted on a front to back photo book. Projects will be taken from start to finish. The techniques learned about color and value on this small scale can be transferred at home to larger personal projects.
The materials fee includes: visuals based on photo supplied by student, personalized pattern, transfer screening, serged linen, pens, pencils, markers, notebook and 5 starter bags of stripped wool 1/3rd ounce each. So adventure into this highly artistic, creative world of color and value and learn techniques that can be transferred at home to larger personal projects.
