Homework

Give Yourself the Day!

Before heading to your adventure, we encourage you to give yourself the day – we will not force you to pocket your cell phones (you will want to take pictures of your pieces and experience); however, one of the best ways to get the most from your adventure is to immerse yourself in the day.

 

Photo Transfer Workshop

For the Photo Transfer, we will ask you to send in your image ahead of time so we are ready to create during the workshop. We encourage you to use a photo you have taken yourself that you can play with. This can be an old sepia-tone of your parent's wedding, a landscape at the local park or travel picture. Think about choosing an image with high contrast to get best results. You can choose a colour image and simply transfer it or consider a black and white image transfer to a stained coloured panel. In this case think about your positive and negative space and begin by choosing a photo that has about 75 percent light versus dark colors, as light-colored photos have a much better success rate. This workshops process will allows you to paint below and on top of the photograph so keep that in mind when choosing your photo.  

 

More details will be provided closer to the day!

What to Wear

Be prepared to get messy! Please wear old comfortable clothing that you can get paint on and dress in layers  will be comfortable. You are welcome to bring slippers if you do not want to work in shoes all day. We do have aprons available.
