Art Journal Fun with Image Transfers 

Free Demonstration at Rileystreet Art Supply, Santa Rosa

Sunday, July 8, 12-2pm


Do you love the sense of mystery evoked when images and words are superimposed over painted surfaces?  In this demo Susan will first create a spontaneous abstract underpainting using fluid acrylics and fingers only!  Then she will demonstrate a method to transfer a transparent image onto the painted surface using clear contact paper, a toner copied print and acrylic gel.

Learn to add personal meaning to your paintings by incorporating images such as copies of old family photos, favorite poems printed in unique fonts, and copyright-free images.  Guidance will be given in how to select images that will work to greatest effect in a transparent transfer as well as in how to incorporate the image seamlessly into the final piece.

Participants will also be introduced to a practice of art journaling as an ongoing practice to experiment with new art materials and techniques while accessing inner wisdom.
