Art Quilt Critique Workshop Inspires and Motivates SAQA Texas members

Dr. Sandra Sider, Curator of the Texas Quilt Museum, and a well established juror, author and art quilter, presented a workshop for SAQA Texas members on Sept. 12, 2015.

SAQA Texas members made the trek to the Great Expectations Creativity Center in La Grange, Texas. Sandra explained how color, balance, line, movement, and even the title influence a piece of art. Five art quilters offered their work for Sandra to critique during the workshop. During the critique session, she gave tips on how to critique your own work. In addition, she encouraged the members to lead critique sessions in their own art quilt communities and guided attendees on how to offer critiques that are positive and motivate the artist to think in new ways.

Thank you Dr. Sider for sharing your time and talents with SAQA Texas. And thanks to the SAQA members who attended.
