Instructor Perry Rath will lead participants in pursuing a mixed-media approach to creating a work of art for the 6x6 auction. You will learn the photo-transfer process, which can be applied to your own photos, and also images and text from magazines and newspapers, as well as simple stamping techniques to build up layers for interesting effects. We will also talk about composition and colour theory, since this year's auction theme is "Expressions of Colour."
Items to bring for participants:
1. any photographs that you wish to try some transfer processes with, please bring as photocopies, not your original.  The original image gets destroyed in the process of securing it into acrylic medium, so definitely do not use your only copy.  Bring as many images as you may like to choose from, just make sure that they are photocopies on regular cartridge paper, not glossy stuff.  Plus, you can bring more than one photocopy of each image if you'd like.
2. also, any text that you may like to try to transfer. That includes magazine, newspaper, personal poem, etc. Again, a photocopy will work best, unless the original is not precious (like a passage from a newspaper that you can get more copies of).
3. any other interesting materials for a variety of textures (fabric scraps, burlap, textured papers, maps, old books, etc.)
