Learn how to use a gesso image transfer technique while exploring surface and new ways of making mixed-media images.

Starting with a demonstration of image transfer using gesso, students will explore the possibilities of creating an image using these materials. We will look at building up mixed-media surfaces using other mediums and processes such as wax, varnish, and paint. The work of artists such as Victoria Crowe and Robert Rauschenberg will provide inspiration and we will consider the potential to create ambiguity and suggestions of memory in our work.
