Xerox Transfer Workshop 
Available for 6 participants

Date: Sunday, Jan. 12th, 2014
(Snow date: Sunday, Jan. 19th)
Time: 1 to 4 pm
Place: 40 Glen Rd. Leyden, MA
Cost: $50.
All Materials are included.

I provide a number of prepared surfaces that will be available to experiment on. (9”x12” heavy weight paper, and 4”x4” canvas)

Participants should bring several freshly made black and white xerox images to play with. Copies made from an office copier within 24 hours before work best. (computer printers do not work well) Xerox copies should be no bigger than 8.5 x 11”

In an intimate setting at my personal studio, I will teach workshop participants  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 including large scale xerox.
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.


No comments:

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.
