Shedding Skin

An inspirational workshop focusing on introspection and self-expression while exploring a wide variety of media. We will begin with photographing a self-portrait with an 8x10 camera onto black and white paper, followed by transferring this image onto canvas. Introducing different approaches to the use of mixed media and non-traditional materials in composition, the instructor will share his working methods of integrating signs, symbols, and mark-making to build and reveal layered surfaces of image. Students will work with their own personal narratives and focus on creating pieces rich with personal meaning. A balance of inner exploration and outer process.
