Painted Photos, Textures, and Treasures by DJ Pettitt
In this 3-day course, we'll build a book using photos and simple methods for painting over them to create journal covers on 6" canvas boards. Then, be prepared for a whirlwind of techniques to create the fabric hinges, painted and collaged signatures, and embellished spine to complete the book. DJ will instruct you on how to paint over and alter your photos; integrate collage elements into your composition; incorporate texture, ephemera, and textiles; and finally, pull it all together with a simple binding technique. No drawing or painting skills required. Class is open to all skill levels and you will receive personalized one-on-one guidance throughout the workshop.
