The Art of Being An Artist

What makes a person an artist? Where does that spark first burn? There is an art to nurturing and fanning the embers of creativity. Susan Shie is back to inspire us by sharing her life's journey to becoming an artist. Then Jill Jensen takes a different type of journey as she describes her process of making a weekly quilt for 18 years! These small quilts include journaling on the back and illustrate a disciplined approach to being an artist. We finish with a return visit from Laurie Ceesay and a lesson on how to portray artists by stitching realistic hair in a portrait quilt.
