Please join us on Tuesday, March 28, from 6-7.30 in the Lower Level of Towne Center for a workshop focusing on Image Transfer.
Image Transfer is the art of transferring a printed image or text onto a different surface. In this exciting short-format workshop, participants will creatively cut, collage, and transfer images from printed and drawn materials onto the gessoed board using acrylic gel medium. Students will learn the tools and tricks necessary for this easy mixed-media technique and explore the possibilities of theme, texture, layering, and embellishing the images with acrylic paint to create an artfully intuitive composition. Participants will walk away with two small mixed-media pieces. The class is appropriate for all ages and skill levels.
Please RSVP soon as space fills quickly. If you realize you can no longer attend, please cancel your reservation at least 24 hours in advance so we can make spots available to guests on our waitlist.
This class will be taught by Morgan Thomas Shankweiler - who splits her time between Philadelphia, PA, and the coast of Maine. She graduated with sociology and studio art majors from Williams College and studied miniature painting in Jaipur, India. Her background in sociology informs her work, which examines community, relationships, and the commonalities of human experience through metaphoric and aleatoric paintings and interactive installations. Using common linkable units as a visual equalizer, Shankweiler utilizes the language of gameplay to communicate the context and data-informed confines of a social system. Shankweiler has been awarded residencies at the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation, SVA, Penland School of Craft, and Da Vinci Art Alliance and also works as a portrait painter for MuralArts Philadelphia. Her award-winning work has been featured, exhibited, and collected across the continental US and online. Upcoming events include a two-person exhibition at DaVinci Art Alliance (March), a solo exhibition at Rehoboth Art League (May), and teaching a two-week workshop at Penland School of Craft (July/Aug).
