September 16 – October 21, 2015 (no class Sept 23)
6:30 – 9:30pm
Photo-based imagery within mixed media has become very popular. Along side other collage materials, image transfers give the artist an ability to layer and control the transparency of the ingredients in their artworks. This workshop will focus on the use of photographic images in non-traditional ways, especially image transfers and surface treatments. Solvents, acrylic gel medium and adhesive transfers are some of our projects.
Explore boundaries between drawing, painting and collage. Learn how to make a collage using a variety of tools to manipulate and explore your images in new ways. From representation to abstract, you will be able to explore your memory and tell your story. Bring your favorite images, photos and archival images (xeroxes would be awesome!).
Materials fee $35.
Open to everyone ages 18 & up, all media and skill levels.
It’s a messy business, so please dress accordingly!
