MAPH 321 - Surface Altered Photographs

3 credits
A concentration on the fundamental ideas and techniques for altering the surface of photographic prints, the emphasis is on one-of-a-kind prints, mixed media, and nontraditional materials. Techniques and materials covered include: traditional hand-coloring (oil paint, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, pencil, liquid dyes), toning and bleaching, graphic arts film, Polaroid transfer, photocopier transfer lifts, liquid emulsion, tin-types, and the preparation and painting of digital prints. Assignments, a research paper, slide lectures, and critiques center on creative possibilities, technical proficiency, and the development of increasingly more personalized visual and photographic statements.
