In this 2 and a half hour long workshop, a professional artist will demonstrate the photo transfer process and you will have a chance to create one of your own pieces of artwork.
You will have a hands-on experience with making the actual transfer, revealing the transfer after it has dried, and turning the transfer into a finished painting. You will use a variety of prepared photographs provided by the instructor.
