JOY CARTER: INSTRUCTOR PROFILE
I am an experimenter of all things art! Painting, mixed media and quilting are my favorites so it was natural for me to combine those arts into what I call “Collage Fabric Painting.” I recently retired from a career of teaching all ages various subjects. I am now excited for the opportunity to use both my skills as a teacher and an artist to introduce others to this fun way of experimenting.
