Instructor: Sarah Rehmer
Day/Time: Mondays/6pm - 8:30pm
Dates:April 4, 11, 25, May 2, 9, 16, 23 (No Class on 4/18)
In this class, we will take a comprehensive look at working with collage materials and image transfers combined with encaustic paint. We will start the first class by creating some of our own papers to work on using various water media and batik-inspired techniques. From there will be working with both the papers we have made, as well as other types of purchased papers to create richly layered backgrounds to transfer photographic-based imagery onto. The result will be hybrid works that touch on elements of painting, collage, and photography. Throughout the class, there will be multiple demos on technique as well as best practices from combining multiple materials for best adhesion, finely tuned fusing, and surface finish. Sarah will also present tips for what to look for when choosing images to work with for a successful transfer both from a technical and aesthetic standpoint.
