Workshop: Alchemy: Image Transfers

Cost: $80 Museum Members, $90 non-members (includes materials)
Level: All levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
Turn found imagery and unusual ephemera into artistic gold in this highly experimental workshop that explores three different techniques for image transfer. Explore textured, collaged, and limited palette backgrounds with unusual images applied in multiple transparent layers on top. Learn the advantages of working with acrylic media to create substrates receptive to all sorts of drawing and painting tools, and techniques that easily translate to larger surfaces including canvas and paper. Each student takes home three original, “alchemical” mixed-media works: two on wood panels and one on paper.
Instructor Pamela Lanza has an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Before relocating to Asheville, she taught at UC Berkeley Extension’s Post-Baccalaureate Art Studio program and San Francisco Art Institute for 20 years.
