Art and Soul 2010 Day One

Today is the first day of Art and Soul in Hampton, VA. I'm taking a class every day but no night classes this year. Today I'm taking a class called Surface Magic with Marie Otero.

Here's the description from the Art and Soul website: This class is focused on working with the digitally printed image, either your own photographs or your own artwork and is designed to enable artists to expand their digital printing horizons beyond the basic output of photo or fine art paper whilst still using their own home desktop printer.

Students will explore a variety of techniques for creating unique substrates for printing, with a particular focus on using common household, hardware and recycled materials. We will also experiment with prints on specialty papers, metallic surfaces and the use of transfer film. Students will also be exposed to the use of digital grounds to enhance surface preparation, learn how to create acrylic ‘skins’ and touch on the use of under-painting to give new and incredible dimension to your printed work.

The emphasis of the class is on experimentation and discovery!

I hope to post photos of my creations soon.

Until my next post,
