The Altered Image: Photographic Collage and Transfer (Ages 9–10)
Change the meaning of images you find in magazines by reworking them through the image transfer process. 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. You’ll get 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, we’ll 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.
