INTRO TO IMAGE TRANSFERS (4 hours)
Explore the many techniques of transferring photographic images to watercolor paper, fabric and other surfaces using laser copies and ink jet transparencies with solvents, gels and mediums. With image transfers as opposed to taking the image and gluing it down, you create transparent effects which allow exciting possibilities of layering your images with paint, text, pattern, wax, gold leaf, collage.
For those of you that need a quick recall of the methods taught in the beginning class, this is the class for you! We will do a quick review of previous techniques, and jump right into new methods to enhance your work: creative backgrounds, combining drawing and painting, adding text, and more.
Bring multiple copies to give you the freedom to experiment, and a willingness to get outside of the box!
PHOTO TRANSFER AND THE ARTIST BOOK
Create a unique book filled with your personal images. Learn folded and sewn bindings to create a one-of-a-kind artist book.
In addition, everyone will go home with a collaborative book, including transferred images from all participants. This is “bound” to be an exciting day.
PRIVATE CLASSES: Design Your Own
Put together your own group (how about a birthday party class?) and personalize your own workshop!
