Date: June 11th and 12th, 11:30-4:30 Painters and non-painters can take creative advantage of new grounds that allow artists to combine print and paint in luminous layers. This class will alleviate fears about new printing techniques and open up a world of acrylic skins—actual layers of acrylic paint that can be printed on directly from an inkjet printer. Students will work into these images to transform them, seal them and then create unique mixed media paintings. Also available are a large variety of acrylic paints, gels, and mediums to glaze, draw, overpaint, collage and pour over the digital images. All levels are welcome. No additional supplies required, just bring your creative and open mind. This workshop is perfect for photographers, and digital artists, who are interested in opening up possibilities for the print on unique surfaces. Mixed Media artists will find new ideas to expand their current work and painters will find cool ideas for manipulating digital versions of their paintings. Come with a sense of adventure, and be open to new ideas, not finished work! This would be an ideal chance to learn how to create limited edition multiples for art fairs.
