Yonkers Community Quilt

During the entire Yonkers Community Quilt art series, the instructors used each art workshop as an introduction to the art elements such as line, texture, shape value, tint, and color. Participants practiced not only the painting techniques, but they also incorporated drawings and collages into their artworks. Many of the art workshops focused on design, as the main objective of this project was to connect all created pieces, into one huge composition “Yonkers Community Quilt”.

Nowodworski Foundation is proud to be a grantee of ArtsWestchester with funding made possible by the Westchester County government with the support of County Executive George Latimer.
