[email protected]

Digital Photography has made making a print as simple as clicking and printing. But what if you brought that process back into the art studio? This webinar will be a preview of some of the many techniques that will be offered during the NAEA20 hands-on session called Digital Gets Dirty. You will explore the possibilities of digital printmaking through experimental techniques such as image transfer, fabric prints and more. You will learn about the many substrates that a photograph can be printed onto including fabric, metal, glass, wood, and stone. Learn how to transform a photo into a true work of art. There are some great connections to TAB and STEAM studio practices too. Enrich your work with students or extend your own art practice.
