Giselle Quinto Takes Embroidery Art to a New Level #ArtTuesday
Embroidery is positively fascinating. Being able to draw with stitches while also utilizing that same fiber to create life-like texture has always been so intimidating but so inspiring for me. Giselle Quinto’s work exemplifies these qualities! From Brown Paper Bag:
Above all, Giselle’s embroidered portraits feature contemporary women who appear solo and engage in their own interests; their joy is their own. This is in keeping with the greater concept of her stitching. On her website, Giselle writes, “Her work brings an anarchic view to classic embroidery, revisiting old traditions and transforming it in protest for equality, where all have the right to be and live whoever they are.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
