Altered Words and Imagery

Behold the power of word and positive thinking. In this session, you will construct a wish book to hold little notes and images for what you wish for in the present and future. Working with lightweight wood for the book structure, we will create “folder pages” that can hold smaller collages, photographs, letters, notes, and other manifestations of wishes. Think creative positive magic.

Next, you’ll explore different processes of altering traditional and digital photographs and how to use them in mixed media arwork. Think of it as photoshop without the computer! Rediscover your love of photography by using your own imagery in your art. You will complete approx. 2 mixed media collages which incorporate our altered photos.

Finally, go deeper into altered imagery with a mixed media portrait, a fun and inspiring way of reinterpreting the portrait regardless of your drawing skills. Using magazine images and/or color laser copies of your own photos you will alter these images in a painterly way using paints and pens. Portrait will be mounted on canvas board.
