Creative Photography Using Cold Wax Medium

Aug 29 - Sep 2, 2022

9AM-5PM

Concept

Expand your creative possibilities by melding the captivating worlds of photography with fine art painting using cold wax medium and oil paints. This easy to use setup will open new avenues of artistic expression.

Cold wax is a painting medium that is popular for its beauty, safety and ease of use. When combined with photography, it can extend the photographer’s intention and guide the viewer’s interpretation of a photographic image.

The process begins with digital images printed onto oil painting paper — all printed during class. Participants enhance the images with a variety of creative options including layering additional mixed media materials, adding textures, mark making and applying color. This workshop introduces an expansive spectrum of possibilities for enhancing photographic images with painterly techniques and mixed media — all offer unique contributions to an artist’s vision.

Media

Photography, painting, digital printing, collage and alternative techniques including layering images, stencils and masks, incising lines, oil pastels and pigment sticks

Photography & New Media

Photography has always been a vital part of Anderson Ranch, one in which students explore visual storytelling through a variety of contexts and concepts. The program has uniquely evolved to focus on both traditional photography and new media— making it one of the only workshop settings of its kind. Three floors of the Fischer Photography Center house state-of-the-art equipment, including three photography studios, two Mac labs, a traditional darkroom, and a lighting studio with strobe and continuous lighting for photography and video.

All Photography workshops are rooted in the same idea—powerful art requires rigorous inquiry of techniques and ideas. We focus on technical skills, content and critical dialog. Students have access to color-managed media labs equipped with 24-inch iMacs, flatbed and film scanners, Epson printers, and cutting-edge software including Adobe Creative Cloud. When appropriate, students utilize strobe and tungsten lighting equipment, seamless backdrops, green screen, audio and video recording equipment and Epson large-format printers.

The Ranch Photography and New Media team creates an inspiring environment, allowing artists of all levels to explore lens-based media and the journey of artistic discovery in the unparalleled setting of the Colorado Rockies.

Photographic Collage: An Exploration of Photography and Painting

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,275
Code P0101-22

Join an engaging exploration of the synthesis between two distinct art forms: photography and painting. Students discover transfer techniques that integrate photographic images and text directly onto painted surfaces, resulting in intriguingly layered works. Participants explore traditional collage and photomontage as well as master new methods that allow for opaque and translucent layers. Reductive methods, such as sanding and scraping, reveal the history of earlier photographic layers and suggest an archaeological approach to image development. The workshop emphasizes experimentation and exploratory approaches. Students produce a portfolio of physical examples of all techniques.
