This is a great new course that I have been developing over the past year. I may be known for transfers from my first book Image Transfer Workshop, but I am now experimenting with papers and other materials to get instant transparent collage elements to add to your paintings. I will bring four different papers for us to work on and we will explore various mark-making techniques on these papers. You can even trace over a part of an image, do texture rubbing, draw using a variety of tools and even found objects. You will discover indirect mark making, stamping and spraying with stencils. These papers will be added to abstract backgrounds that you have painted onto Ampersand panels.

The layering possibilities are amazing and by incorporating both transparency and adding opacity with paints, you will develop a very sophisticated mixed media artwork. I will bring some special paints and pens to add to the finished artwork. You will learn layering using color and composition techniques as well.

Instructor provides art materials to share including use of texture plates, stamps, stencils, specialty sprays, graphite pencil, texture tools and heat gun. I will bring oil pastels, inks and some paints but you may wish to have some of your own as well.
You may wish to bring a painting to start to work on top of, but we will have panels to paint on as well.
