About This Class

Image transfer with photocopies is a simple way to create print designs that have a dreamy, evocative quality. In this class, I'm going to show you a few ways to do image transfers using collage design.

Collage is used everywhere from street art and advertising to clothing design, music and fine art. It's fun, and it's accessible: anyone from a kindergartener to a seasoned art professional can snip up pieces of the existing culture and reassemble them into electrifying new hybrids.

All you need is a piece of paper, fabic or wood plus a photocopy and a little acrylic gel medium. Very quickly you'll be able to make something beautful, disturbing or thought-provoking!

I work as a technology project manager, but when I'm not at the office, I'm always making things of my own. I especially love illustrating, writing and design.

Here at Skillshare, I focus on teaching printmaking classes -- everything from stencils to woodblock.

I find printmaking inspiring because anyone can quickly start making successful prints with very few tools. It really opens the doors to producing your vision on all kinds of materials: t-shirts, walls, stationery, labels and so much more.
