Her Quilt Project,”Faces Not Forgotten” are   portraits of young gun violence victims (20 and under) to raise awareness of the toll of gun violence in this country and to keep the memory of these young victims visually "alive" will be on exhibit.


Christine Ilewski, pays for Faces by conducting methods workshops as a visiting artist with the Liquitex Artist Outreach Program. This Friday she will give a 2 hour material/methods workshop for artists and fine art students.

The instructor's curriculum event open to adult  artists, and will be conducted 6-8pm in the BAL-Arts Incubator, space is limited to RSVP required.  There is no charge to you. This is a program sponsored by Liquitex for the past 50 years. There will be samples for those that signup, she does not sell any products. It is strictly educational.


My general outline covers:
1. Surface prep: gesso (clear, tinting sculpting) staining
2. Paint viscosities: fluid (inks), soft body, heavy body, markers and spray...their individual strengths and intermix ability
3. Medium (uses) airbrush, glazing, slow-dry, pouring, fabric, gels, texture gels, string gel,
4. and finally varnishing
