OVERVIEW // Discover exciting new ways to add texture and mystery to painterly compositions with a variety of image transfer techniques. Drawing on varied sources such as personal snapshots, found images, or old family photographs, students will learn how to skillfully blend these images into a painterly surface, creating expressive and evocative compositions. Emphasis will be placed on class demonstrations combined with individualized instruction as students become proficient with each technique.
