Barn Quilt Painting

Instructor: Carolyn Edwards

Class Fee:$53.00

After years of providing shelter for livestock, many old barns are being given a new purpose – providing a background for an outdoor art project. Barn quilts are bright and bold public art pieces that celebrate agriculture and rural life. They may be found in almost a third of Iowa’s counties and 25 states. In this class, students will learn the basics of barn quilt painting and create a 12” X 12” barn quilt and will leave with patterns and the knowledge to create more quilts in a variety of sizes.
