Altering Images: Photographic Transfers for Painting, Printmaking, and Collage

Request Program

Image transfer provides artists with the option to create photographic images without the use of a camera. The image transfer process produces a transparent image that allows for the visibility of multiple collaged layers within a single work of art all at once. Learn this process to transform copies of photographs, as well as drawings, images and text from magazines and books into transparent layers within your art. This workshop offers an introduction to a variety of methods of using safe, non-toxic adhesives to manually transfer images, with a focus on contrast, composition, and repurposing materials. After learning this new skill, continue to experiment with combining various media, source material, and collage techniques to create multidimensional, layered works of art. Work on a variety of surfaces, including fabric, paper, and wood.
