We’ll explore the Sitka campus for forms and materials, then use light-sensitive chemistry as a print medium on it’s own and as a foundation for mixed-media paintings. We’ll alter colors by selectively bleaching and toning with natural materials, and incorporate additional layers with pigments and acrylics. Along the way we’ll discuss ideas for making our work stronger. The focus of this workshop will be on experimenting with new techniques and creative approaches that students can incorporate into their own practices, rather than creating a finished masterpiece.
