Perfect for painters, mixed-media artists, and filmmakers, this weekend workshop will explore a number of direct-on-film techniques, allowing participants to make a film without a camera. Participants will apply paints, dyes, collage, scratching, and chemistry to clear leader and found footage. The workshop will also explore decay techniques using bleach, oil, and varnish. The workshop will include studio time, screenings of the artist’s work, and the opportunity to project the films created in the workshop. This workshop is open to all artists; no prior film experience is necessary.
