Xerox Transfer Workshop

The xerox transfer workshop, that was generously funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, was a wonderful success.  10 Leyden artists gathered at the Leyden town hall to learn this fun process that they can now incorporate into their artistic practices.

The workshop is approx. 3 hours long. I would enjoy sharing this technique again with other communities. I am available to present this workshop individually or in a class or workshop setting. Please inquire about rates by emailing me at

Workshop Summary:

workshop participants learn about variety of xerox transfer processes and the different ways they can be applied in creating paintings or other kinds of art.  I will demonstrate the process I use in creating my work.   Participants will then be walked through the process as they create their own.  Participants will leave with at least one xerox transfer work of art on heavy archival paper, a materials list and written directions for future projects.   This workshop will last approx 3 hours.

Topics covered Include:
~How to use digital technology to create an image
~Materials and multiple usage explanation
~How to apply the xerox onto a variety of surfaces
~How to seal the image and layer for use as a painting
~Painting techniques in acrylic and oil for use with the xerox transfer method

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
