About the Event
Beginning with a chosen photo, instructor Laurel Geis will teach students image transfer techniques and develop the work with collage and drawing elements using mixed materials. Develop skills in materials, color, composition and drawing while you learn new techniques and stretch your creativity. Plan to attend all three classes in order to allow drying time and to complete a finished work.
Students should bring an inkjet print of their chosen photo/image to the first class, or email it firstname.lastname@example.org before July 28.
