Fugitive Medium at the 2nd Annual Northern New England SAQA Weekend

How about that for a title?  I chose fugitive medium this month knowing that I was going to be teaching a workshop at the SAQA Weekend.  I basically showed some examples of chalk, charcoal, cretacolor aqua bricks, watercolor pencils, inktense pencils, water-soluable crayons (did I miss something??) art work on fabric and told the participants to go to it.  And they did!  Here are some examples of their work.

 The workshop before mine was presented by Wen Redmond and was Tracking the Wild Print.  She showed how to use plants to create a direct, shadow, and ghost prints.  Those prints made fabulous first layers for enhancement with fugitive medium.  More pictures later showing that wonderful collaboration.


  1. Wow! The shading in the 5th piece, do you remember what medium that was?

  2. The fifth piece is Margaret Sheehan's piece and she used a little bit of everything in it. Here is her blog: http://margaretsquiltart.blogspot.com/

  3. They are all gorgeous, some very talented artists, there
