Basic Photoshop skills required.
Explore combining images and words into hybrid works of art that engage the viewer on multiple levels. In this workshop, students further their work by expanding concept and voice through various photographic collage techniques. These could include direct overlays, such as affixing photographic imagery to canvas and painting over it, or inscribing words and images across the surface of paintings, drawings or sculpture. The goal is to make large works whose individual parts are the foundation for painted or drawn embellishment.
Students cut and paste photographic collage, digital collage, large-format digital output, and draw and paint with ink, oil or acrylic paints directly on photographic imagery.
Students get ample studio time and engage in in-process critiques as well as image presentations.
