African American Paper Quilts

Saturday, March 10, 1 – 3 PM

Participants joined us for an afternoon all ages workshop with artist and COLA 2018 fellowship recipient June Edmonds as she guided us through her improvisational process of creating an abstract mosaic-style collaged paper quilt. Using vibrant and pearlescent watercolors with other media, participants created your own artwork by exploring a variety of brushstrokes, motifs, mark making and patterns inspired by African American quilts.

In 1982 she received her BA degree in Fine Art from San Diego State University in San Diego, CA with a Black Studies minor; and in 1990 June received her MFA degree in Painting from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA.
