Gov't Protocols

KAN will be following protocols regarding COVID-19 that are in place at the time this class occurs.

Come ready to explore the exciting and often unpredictable world of photo transfers! Start with either a more realistic or abstract focus in mind and play with acrylics, collage, inking techniques and transfers to create a finished work on canvas.

Choose a theme – I suggest something from the natural world: trees, plants, flowers, forests, gardens, the seaside – and bring some images printed from an ink jet printer that you might use in your final picture. Laser printed images will NOT work. Bring a selection of different pictures and sizes to work with. Images may be either black and white or coloured…or a mixture of both. Note that your final canvas will be approximately 12” x 16”.

There will be no set formula for a final image, so this class works well for those who enjoy a lot of creative freedom as well as those who prefer a much higher level of guidance. Everyone will be successful!
