We all have innate preferences for certain colors, shapes and proportions, as well as natural attractions to certain symbols, images and icons. In this class we will study photographs and slides of a variety of historic and ethnic decorative objects to help uncover some of the motifs and symbols which may have powerful personal resonance. For example, you may be drawn to Buddhist mandalas or Mexican milagros. You may be attracted to the design of an Inuit mask or the pattern from an Art Nouveau vase. Each student will select historic motifs, shapes and images which they will manipulate and reinterpret into a unique statement in fabric and thread. The aim of the workshop is to nurture your intuitive skills.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Jane Sassaman Cost: $870 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054

Our most memorable quilts are often those that speak to special times, places, things, and people in our lives. Using your photographs as the place to begin the design process offers a personalized and memorable look to your quilts. Based on the design methods developed by Ruth McDowell, this class takes you through the design process – from photo to pictorial quilt. This style of quilt emphasizes the use of patterned cotton fabrics in unique ways yet is grounded in traditional piecing methods. The result is a quilt design with a somewhat abstract quality that is uniquely your own. This course is best suited for the confident beginner to advanced student.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Ann P Shaw Cost: $870 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054

This workshop introduces the Prismatic Palette and its use in helping to capture the myriad light effects faced when painting en plein air. Correct use of the Prismatic Palette helps you to judge values, using warm and cool tones, to bring objects forward or push objects back, to depict light and shadow and to describe the time as well as the type of day. On the first day, Joe will lecture and paint a demo explaining his process. The rest of the week will be spent painting outdoors at Joe’s favorite Island locations. Students can expect to paint two images daily — one in the morning and another in the afternoon.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Joe Paquet Cost: $900 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054
