Jan 3 - 21, 2022
9AM – 5PM
Mixed Media Collage
Join this exciting January intensive workshop to merge photography, painting, collage and digital fabrication technologies. We explore contemporary examples of layered mixed media work and delve into formal as well as technical approaches for combining diverse imagery to create a unique visual language. The class combines structured projects with individually-directed works, one-on-one critiques with the instructor, and group feedback. In addition to working in analog collage and painting processes, students use vector drawings and digital images to create shapes, stencils and image transfers with CNC, laser cutting and digital printing on various substrates. The workshop takes place in the wood loft and makes use of the photography/new media labs as well as the FabLab so that students can explore many possibilities for making dynamic and multilayered imagery. The instructor will be present from 9AM - 12PM each day and students will work independently in the afternoons. Students will have additional access to the Digital Fabrication and Photography & New Media studios during monitor hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9PM.
