SPECIAL OFFER: Consider also attending Beginnings: the nuts and bolts of combining paint and photography the week before this workshop and save 20% on the tuition for the Beginnings class. (This offer cannot be combined with any other offers, promotions or scholarships.)
Expand your photographic endeavor with the help of expert instruction aimed at progressing your journey of making images, whether beginner or advanced. Students have access to their own Mac computers and large-format printers, and we focus on the following processes: different ways of applying paint using water based paints, how to adhere images correctly to their painted panels, and four different transfer techniques – inkjet transparency, paper, contact paper and direct rubbing. Students learn how far they need to push an image to complete it, and how to develop a rigorous editing practice. The course emphasizes investigation, exploration and risk taking through a multi-media approach.
Media & Techniques:
We experiment with different transfers (inkaid, laser, contact paper, direct rubbing), gluing and adhesive techniques, and using our own source material while beginning to build an image on our painted surfaces. Photographs and photography are an important part of the process, but only one of many components that go into building a successful image. Lastly, we work at improving editing skills and visual literacy.
We participate in demonstrations of digital imaging and collage techniques, acrylic painting and transfer techniques including direct paper and DASS transfers. We cover the 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.
