I have a lot of original photographs from my family that I wanted to transfer into an art piece. I decided to transfer these pictures into a small book and make it a permanent photo album in honor of my mother and family. We will add inspirational quotes to the pages, along with stories of loved ones passed down from generation to generation alongside photos of those who has gone before us. In this workshop you will learn to transfer photographs without damage to the original, color washing backgrounds, sealing paper to create a flat surface, paint and medium application, addition of dried elements and collage materials, and swiping a page with gesso for print. Beginning students will learn a cohesive flow in their material applications, along with coordinating color use in their art, and completion of an art piece as-a-whole. Seasoned artists will pick up new tricks in the efficient way to copy and transfer an original photo with ease, along with background blocking of a transparency, shortcuts in creating background techniques, and use of mediums to assist in creative renderings. This art piece was featured in Somerset Studio Magazine, Spring 2018.
