This course will expand your awareness of and encourage a positive attitude towards developing your own creative potential; provide exercises that will enable you to develop your sensory awareness and creativity through embroidery; help you achieve an understanding of the principles of art and how they are used as a vocabulary for expressing the visual aspects of embroidery, as well as for defining personal ideas and thoughts. You will learn of the specific elements and principles of design, and then generate experiments in fabric, thread and other art media to demonstrate these. Sensory awareness, through the “look and see” method, as well as other senses, will be employed in order to gain inspiration for future embroideries.

About the Optional Binder Review
The binder review is an optional step once you’ve completed one of the EAC/ACB technique study courses.
With a binder review, the student will send their completed binder to the Education Director. The Education Director takes a general overall look at the work in the course from beginning to end. Neatness, orderliness, inclusion of all course and any other information, extra work, if done, questions asked and answers and care in presenting an attractive binder is taken into account. Also looked at is skill development from beginning to end, use of colour, stitches, improvement in stitch execution, design, skill in diagramming and/or charting.
The Education Director will mail the binder with her/his notes back to the student with the Certificate of Completion and Correspondence Course Pin.
