Quilted Painting.

If you or your students enjoy working with fabric, painting, stitching or quilting, you'll want to see this videotape. It demonstrates how all of these processes can be combined in a unique and exciting art form. It illustrates how students can begin a work of art with a single piece of fabric, paint a design on it, pad it, stitch it and frame it as a wall piece with an attractive "quilted" appearance. Although the techniques demonstrated use acrylic paints on fabrics, once the process is mastered, it can be applied to use with fabric paints or dyes. This program is quite provocative, well produced and worth a look. Recommended for use at or above the upper elementary level.
