This Workshop begins with participant introduction, studio intro and materials intro, and sharing work. During the first 3 days we will visit beautiful areas of San Miguel to shoot photographs, such as the Instituto Allende and the Escuela de Bellas Artes, El Jardin and the Parroquia. SMA Baroque/Neoclassical colonial structures were "discovered" by foreign artists who moved in and began art and cultural institutes.

In the studio we will prepare paper for books & make Photo Copy transfers with laser prints of our photos - B&W or color. We will use Solvent Transfer methods: Chartpak Blender Pens, Wintergreen Oil. We will also make Contact Paper transfer and Acrylic Medium Transfers. Surface treatments will be introduced such as coating with wax and paint. We will tone Papers with coffee and tea, paint with pan pastel, oil paint and color pencils onto the photo transfers on paper.

The workshop will emphasize the photographic image, but is not limited to this and will include other modes of expression - drawing, poetry, collage and illustrations.

One day midweek we will work with San Miguel artist Susan Dorf  in her studio, sketching and painting our journals, and making photo transfers on her press with wintergreen oil.
