Class Content: Learn how to add depth, interest, and storyline to your collages and mixed media art by using image transfers. Image transfer is a process of lifting the inks off a printed image, such as magazine or photocopies, and applying it to another surface. Transferred images are usually more transparent than the original, making them great for layering.
Try a variety of techniques for transferring images from magazines and laser-copied photos. Create beautiful collage papers by experimenting with image selection, surface choice, and transfer technique to achieve different effects. See what you can do with gel mediums, solvents, acrylic gesso or paint, packing tape, acrylic skins, and specialty printer papers.
Develop an interesting base, then learn to integrate your image transfers into a collage / mixed media work of art by adding paint and papers to achieve a finished and cohesive look.

Biography: I love to create with paper — cut, torn, sliced, ripped, painted, and reassembled. I am particularly drawn to the look, color, texture and malleable nature of torn magazines and painted papers. Images originally meant to convey one message in a magazine can be used to communicate something entirely new in a work of art. An automobile advertisement might become part of a face. A face might become part of an abstract image. Disparate images can be used to tell a story or to extract personal meaning. Discovering hidden images embedded in collage creates a mystery that I simply can’t resist! I have been collaging for 15 years and never grow tired of it. Come explore with me.
