Photographic Collage: An Exploration of Photography and Painting

Kate Leonard

Tuition $1,395
Code P0101-23

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. They also explore traditional collage and photomontage, and 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, enabling students to produce a portfolio of physical examples of all techniques.

With an iPad and Apple Pencil, artists can tap into an entire artist studio. In this workshop, students are introduced to the power and flexibility of digital drawing and illustration on an iPad. Students explore a variety of tools, including Procreate and Adobe mobile apps for tablets. Daily activities lead to understanding custom workspaces, touchscreen gestures, resolution, digital brushes, selections to edit specific areas, working with layers, and layer masks for compositing. Students apply these skills by illustrating a scene from their beautiful surroundings and working from photographic source images. All drawing skill levels are welcome; students need to provide their own iPad and Pencil.

*ADDITIONAL SECTION ADDED AUGUST 7-11* In this workshop each participant learns to create at least one, small, complete video game in Scratch. We will be inclusive, welcoming, loose, and quick in our process as we explore game design in an art context. Scratch is a delightfully inviting programming environment that rewards tinkering and exploration. There are a combination of do-as-I-do demonstrations and prompting to create a game of one's own. We encourage making one's own characters and telling one's own stories. This workshop is open to learners at all levels. Se habla español.
