Bring your past into the present as you interpret images of your family and ancestors through contemporary eyes.

You’ll learn how to transcend the snapshot and create a work that has both artistic merit and personal meaning.

We’ll focus on:

  • developing a clear concept for each image
  • editing and composing the elements of the photo into a dynamic and effective whole
  • generating colour schemes for black and white photos or color-degraded photos
  • exploring brushwork and paint application
  • simplifying features and figures

Working on several different images in this workshop will help you become comfortable and fluent in tackling photo references in the future.
