Photo Transfer: Image and Memory
with Keegan Luttrell
In this workshop we will explore the materials and various methods used to make successful image transfers. Image transfers have a beautiful, ethereal quality and can be used in a multitude of art applications.
We will learn several photo transferring techniques, including solvent, acrylic and transparency alcohol transfers. Exploring several ways to reproduce an image will allow participants to layer, collage and draw into their experiments. We will also take a look at how to transfer onto a variety of materials.
Additionally we will examine conceptual approaches to the idea of image replication in relation to the concept of memory. Through class discussions and examining artists whose work looks at personal and public notions of memory, memory as a trace, and memory in connection to place, participants will be inspired to incorporate new ways of thinking in combination with the introduced techniques.
Participants will leave with the knowledge to continue experimenting with image transfers in their own artwork as well as a conceptual framework to explore artistic notions of memory.

Photo Transfer Salon
with Keegan Luttrell
Join us for an evening of art making in a laid back studio setting. Photo transfer is an accessible mixed media technique that can produce beautiful and layered results when combined with watercolor or acrylic paint. Using a non-toxic solvent, Keegan will guide the class step by step through the image transfer technique. Each student will have a unique image that can then be painted over to create a finished work.
All materials are included, however you are welcome to bring your own xerox images. We will start off with a complementary glass of Prosecco to get the creative juices flowing!
Also available for private groups.
Cost: 43 Euro (includes all materials and a glass of Prosecco)
