Welcome to the Pleasanton Art League

LAA & PAL’s June 2024 General Meeting

Monday, June 10, 2024 at 7.30pm

Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th Street, Livermore, 94550

Program: Quilts by Khristel Johnson

Khristel Johnson is a mother of two and an educator teaching American history for over 30 years. Khristel published her first 3-part series entitled, From the Plantation to the White House which was about a single discovery about “Pit Schools”. Later, she embarked on a self discovery journey and started making quilts. She uses authentic African fabrics and beads experimenting with colors and designs. Her knowledge helped her integrate the 3 dimensional handmade art, resulting in a 50- quilt collection. She hopes that she can inspire others to embark on their personal journey and seek a more inclusive, accurate and comprehensive understanding of the African American Experience.

Demo: Khristel Johnson will give an introduction about herself and how she got into making Quilts. She will talk about the Fabrication – Assembly process and the driving forces which resulted in 50 plus quilts.
