Virtual Two-Day Workshop: Fixing the Image

March 16th and 18th, 1:00-3:00pm at OMA Online

Ever since the camera was invented, artists have been compelled to enhance, correct, and augment images of the world around them. Join Robin Douglas for this two-day multi-media exploration to combine and re-contextualize images, both real and imagined, appropriated and applied for your own unique works of art. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Deborah Roberts, Hannah Hoch, Ellen Gallagher, and Lorna Simpson, experiment freely with photographs as well as other sourced materials to make fresh and powerful imagery.
