Featuring Photo Transfers and Collage Techniques

With Heidi Sussman and Nancy Ori

September 17 (Sunday) – 10:30 – 5:00

Join us for a fun day of learning how to unleash your creativity with this inspirational workshop. You are invited to see the magic of layering photographs with simple mixed media techniques and photo transfers that create work with incredible diversity and uniqueness.

There will be a short presentation showing examples of the creative work being done today by contemporary mixed media and collage artists. We will look at how abstraction, composition, paper and other support selections, and different art mediums can create amazing one-of-a-kind pieces to feature your photographs.  We will take time to look at your images and make suggestions on how to incorporate them into collage or image transfer.

There will be discussions, examples and demos on a variety of techniques including using acrylic paint, wax, collage and finishing with top coats and frames. You’ll see how to transfer images to various materials including paper, tile and wood with simple yet effective products.

There will be plenty of creative opportunities and one-on-one time with two master artists to walk you through each process. You will be stress-free while you have the opportunity to “learn by doing” with each directed step. Expect to leave with an inspired imagination for future projects as well as some finished work.

All necessary art materials and tools will be supplied along with a comprehensive handout containing “how-to” descriptions of all the techniques being demonstrated as well as other mixed media techniques to try on your own. This guide will help you to continue working with these techniques into the future.

This workshop is geared for any level of artist wanting to combine photographs with other mediums in order to add new interest and excitement to their work. No previous art experience is necessary. The only requirement is to have access to an inkjet printer and a toner copy machine so that you can have images ready to work on. There will be no printing done at this workshop.

As soon as you are registered, you will receive info on what to bring and how to prepare some images.
