Join us and inspire your creativity with this fun mixed media online workshop. In these two sessions you will learn how to produce photo and nature transfers, and incorporate watercolor, torn papers, and collage elements to create work with incredible diversity and uniqueness. Discussion, demos and hands-on time will show you how to use the various materials with simple yet effective techniques. We will look at examples of contemporary mixed media artists for ideas and discuss how abstraction, composition, paper selections and different art mediums can create one-of-a-kind pieces to feature your photographs for gifting or exhibiting. There will be time to look at your images and make suggestions on how to incorporate them using collage, printing, or transfer techniques. Expect to gain an inspired imagination for future projects. This workshop is geared for any level of artist wanting to incorporate photos with other mediums to add new interest to their work. No previous art or photography experience is necessary.
Participants will receive a comprehensive handout containing ‘how-to’ descriptions of the mixed media techniques being demonstrated as well as other techniques to try on your own. This helpful guide will enable you to continue working well into the future. A short list of instructions about what materials you will need to have and how to prepare some images will be sent after you are registered.
This class will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
