Mixed Media: Merging Photography and Painting
Elizabeth Ferrill, Andrea Jenkins Wallace
In three half-day classes, students discover the basics of mixed-media collage while engaging in gel medium transfer techniques that integrate photographic images and text directly onto water-based, painted surfaces. We explore painting media and techniques, drawing methods applied directly onto the collage, and various transfer and application processes, resulting in dynamic layers. Students are encouraged to use their own drawings and photographs or create images on site using their iPhone as source material. Covered painting techniques are color mixing, stenciling, gradients and brushwork with a focus on painting from photographic imagery as well as from life. The goal is to create a finished collage by the end of the class.
