The Hybrid Image: Paint and Pixels
New ideas and creative perspectives are brought to life by combining photography, painting and collage through hands-on experimentation of exciting new transfer techniques. In this workshop, students print onto film and learn how to transfer images to traditional and nontraditional substrates while pushing the boundaries of creative possibilities. The workshop results in an expanded idea of how digital photography can be used to add depth and produce artwork that is truly unique.
