Hand-coloring Your Inkjet Photographs
February 23 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm EST$150.00
Handcoloring Your Inkjet Photographs is a full day workshop designed to expand your knowledge of different art mediums and how to combine them with your photographs to create one-of-a-kind mixed media pieces. You will learn how to enhance your inkjet prints with many different media, including: watercolor, collage, pastels, and color pencils. You will be able to take your photographs a step away from reality and interpret the images in many different ways to enhance the mood you want to convey & also create one-of-a-kind pieces. This workshop is for any level of artist working with any format camera as long as you can have your photographs printed and ready to paint. A comprehensive handout will be given to you describing the techniques that we will be covering so you will have it to work with long after the workshop is over.
The session will involve technical and creative discussions, presentation of many sample paintings for inspiration, and critiques of images brought by the participants. Included: how to shoot and print for painting and selecting the right images to paint. Nancy will demonstrate how to use each type of medium that we have available in a step by step simple process. Our goal is to have you play with each of the mediums and to have fun with it, ultimately deciding which direction is the most comfortable for you without having to buy all the supplies in order to test everything on your own.
Students will be encouraged to push themselves creatively beyond their norm to try new art materials and techniques in order to identify the emotional responses of adding color and texture to their photographs. You will come away with a new appreciation of painting and seeing color in new ways. We will have lots of materials available for you to try if you don’t have paints, pastels or pencils, but you can also bring what you have so you can learn how to use the materials you already own. Instructions on how to prepare for the day will be sent upon registration. This will include where to order your photos to be printed on a variety of different kinds of paper or canvas including watercolor paper if you cannot do it at home. You can create line drawings, conversions to black and white, desaturated images and explore filters for special effects with your inkjets in prep for the workshop photographs you will need to print. Bring enough printed photographs to paint on for several hours after the lecture and demos
