From dusk till dawn, the darkness can reveal a world filled with mystery and wonder. Photographic possibilities become endless when imagination and knowledge collide after dark. Movement, color and light combine to give results that are often unseen with the naked eye. Longer shutter speeds can produce imposing cobalt blue skies, surreal car trails and star trails, stunning architecture, one of a kind silhouettes, gorgeous motion blurs, electrifying lightning and of course the awe inspiring Milky Way Galaxy. In the class you will learn everything you need to know on scouting good night locations, camera settings, knowing when and where the Milky Way will be, lightpainting and mastering your camera gear for shooting after dark.

Each participant will create one or two landscape quilts along with several small studies. The class will explore different approaches to representing landscape, including those of artists in a variety of media. Sue will then show students how to look at the landscape, analyze it, and translate it to fabric using several fused construction methods to help them each accomplish their goals. For those that are taking this workshop for the second time, a more ambitious project can be pursued. Sue began making landscape images from raw edges, selvedges, and other odds and ends from scrap bags. From there she has gone on to add other techniques and develop a large series of work inspired by wetlands and prairies.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Sue Benner, www.suebenner.com Cost: $870 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054

Monoprinting with textile paints can dramatically change the surface of your work, pushing your ideas into new creative territory. Using her fusible collage methods, Sue will demonstrate how to paint and print at different levels of construction, from manipulating a single piece of fabric to the entire surface of the quilt. Through experimentation with opaque and metallic paints, each participant will have the opportunity to create two works: one abstract and open-ended, the other more realistic and image-based.   Location: La Pointe, Wisconsin Instructor: Sue Benner, www.suebenner.com Cost: $870 Sponsor: Madeline Island School of the ArtsWebsite, email, (715) 747-2054
