Surface Explorations (Mixed Media Workshop)


  • Pacific NorthWest Art School Coupeville, WA USA

Pacific NorthWest Art School in Coupeville, WA.

Think of this workshop as a buffet!  We'll spend the week exploring a large subset of processes that can be used on paper and fabric - all of which should be in every mixed media artist's toolbox.  These include photocopy solvent transfers, paper and metal leaf lamination, gilding, water media crayons, a French process called "devore'" - which literally "burns out" cellulose fiber when it is combined with synthetic paper or cloth, and the unexpected beauty of sanding into dry paint to generate gorgeous distressed surfaces.  Our mantra will be "what if?" and our goal will be a distinctive visual vocabulary.
