Holly Roberts & Jonathan Singer
DATES: September 7 – 18, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: II – III (Some experience with Photoshop or imaging software required.)
CONCEPT: Learn to paint expressively and apply new discoveries to the art of photography by creating rich, varied backgrounds for your digital images. When we paint expressively, we access the most immediate and direct links to our creative selves. By understanding how different media work together, learn which processes are most effective in discovering your creative voice. We explore transfers, gluing techniques, painting techniques, surfaces, supports, media compatibility and use of acrylic paints.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students use paint, digital images, found objects, organic objects, recycled art (both personal and not), 3-D objects and anything we can bring into the studio to work with. Students bring their own digital images to use in class.
ACTIVITIES: We participate in demonstrations of digital imaging and collage techniques, acrylic painting, transfer techniques including direct paper and DASS transfers; use of transparencies in layering of images, gluing techniques, and the use of different materials to apply the digital image to the painted surface. Image presentations showcase artists using these techniques.
FACULTY: Holly Roberts has exhibited nationally and internationally and published three monographs of her work, including “Holly Roberts,” “Holly Roberts: Works 1989-1999” and “Holly Roberts: Works 2000-2009.” In 2013, her work was exhibited at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Oaxaca in Mexico. www.hollyrobertsstudio.com
