Texture and self-portraiture in the Digital Age
Submitted By Avanthi Kanmatareddy
Myrna Wacknov will be presenting a 4-day workshop at the Fremont Art Association Gallery May 30 through June 2. This workshop is for those artists who are looking for a shift in their work from copying a photograph to interpreting an image in new and exciting ways. We will be working with our own faces but the ideas and techniques learned can be applied to any subject.
Taking advantage of the amazing power of electronic devices, we will take a self- portrait using an iPad or iPhone or equivalent device, learn how to use the Photoshop app PS Touch to manipulate the image in creative ways, and then transform some of those ideas into paintings.
The classic approach of designing a painting using the elements of design will be combined with using unexplored materials, tools, techniques and pairings. Each day will start with the element of texture, plus a focus on one additional element. The workshop is $300 per person.
