T58. Surrealism Polaroid Collaging & Mixed Experimental Techniques
8 HOURS

Large Polaroid Collaging with a variety of techniques participants can choose to do with their project to enhance the overall story and theme of their collage.Polaroid Decay (Water, chemical soaks), Mixed Media (Adding paint, embroidery, glitter etc), Polaroid Burn and Lighter/microwave.

- Introduce Polaroid Collaging on a large scale.

- What is it?

- Why large collages require a strong core artistic message

- How to brainstorm a Surrealism Polaroid collage concept

- How to shoot and execute their vision.

- Introduce experimental techniques that would be able to layer the message of their large surrealism polaroid collage.

- What is Polaroid Decay?

- What is Mixed Media and Polaroids?

- What is Polaroid Burn?

- Participants will go out and shoot the collage they brainstormed.

- Remaining time will be executing Mixed techniques to highlight their overall message of their art piece.

I will teach participants the different options for assembling their collages to a finished collage masterpiece.

Participants must bring:

Course will provide Polaroid 600 Film. Participants will need to bring their own polaroid camera that shoots Polaroid 600 Film. OR Their own camera and film that they need if Polaroid 600 isn't compatible with their cameras. Also participants may want to bring a tripod!

T09. Surrealism Polaroid
Diptych & Triptych Collaging

4 HOURS

Surrealism Polaroid Diptych & Triptych Collaging. Combining polaroid photographs into a deeper message, story and art piece.

- Enter Diptych

- What is Diptych?

- How it can be used in experimental photography to tell a story and enrich the message of the two images coming together.

- Enter Triptych

- What is Triptych?

- How it can be used in experimental photography to tell a story and enrich the message of the three images coming together.

What is Surrealism?

- How Surrealism invites imagination to message and storytelling.

- How to get creative and brainstorm Surrealism concepts and messages.

Then participants would create a Surrealism Diptych and or Triptych that they would be able to take home with them.

I would also present paperwork for participants to learn how to scan their project in high resolution digital form.

Participants must bring:

A polaroid camera that shoots Polaroid 600 Film and 3 Polaroid 600 Film. Participants can bring other camera models, as long as they bring the film they will need to complete the workshop. IE If participants wish to shoot with a SX-70 polaroid camera.. they will need to bring their own SX-70 film.

T04. Polaroid Intervention: Assembling Inks and Chemicals
4 HOURS

We will create our own Polaroid laboratory where we will experimenta set of actions to intervene and therefore transform an integral film. We will work on the importance of experimentation and the importance of errors as possibilities for the reinterpretation and expansion of the photographic image and therefore also of its language. We will reflect on the analogy and philosophy behind each technique, each action, each transformation, as an enabling space for the construction of an idea, visual poem, or message.

Development of the workshop:

Introduction: Understanding support. Description and structure of the integral film and its parts. Presentation of references and own works.

Practice: From a proposal developed in the room, we will go out to photograph ourselves. The objective of this practice is to generate the material with which we will work in the workshop, incorporating qualities such as chance and interaction between the participants.

First intervention:Polaroid film transparencies. We will transform the photographs into translucent images, being able to add layers of paint and even other photographs. This method can be used as a basis for collages.

Second intervention:Inkjet. We will inject ink into the integral film by using needles and syringes. We will spread that paint generating different shapes, colors and a visual texture. We will observe what changes occur when coming into contact with the chemicals and the image.

Closing of the workshop:Reflection on what has been experienced and the results obtained.

Participants must bring:

- Camera with integral film (sx-70, 1000. E-type...), preferably in black and white.

- Between 3 and 5 Polaroid photographs taken no more than 10 days in advance, color or black and white.

- 5 discard photographs (errors, out of focus...) color or black and white.

T55. Where the monsters live:
Mixed media collage and intervention on Polaroid

8 HOURS

We will create our own polaroid laboratory where we will experience a set of actions to intervene and therefore transform an integral film. We will work on the importance of experimentation and the importance of errors as possibilities for the reinterpretation and expansion of the photographic image and therefore also of its language. We will reflect on the analogy and philosophy behind each technique, each action, each transformation, as an enabling space for the construction of an idea, visual poem, or message.We will deepen and insist on the hybridization of techniques as a means to broaden the horizons of instant photography.

Day I. Morning

Introduction: Understanding support. Description and structure of the integral film and its parts. Presentation of references and own works.

Practice: From a proposal developed in the room, we will go out to photograph. The objective of this practice is to generate the material with which we will work in the workshop, incorporating qualities such as chance and interaction between the participants.

First Intervention: Manipulation through development (in situ). We will manipulate the sheet of the integral film, generating alterations between the chemical agents. With no more tools than our own hands.

Second Intervention: Injection of ink. We will inject ink into the integral film. We will spread that paint generating different shapes, colors and visual texture. We will observe what changes occur when coming into contact with the chemicals and the image.

Third intervention. Polaroid film transparencies. We will transform the photographs into translucent images, being able to add layers of paint and even other photographs. This method can be used as a basis for collages.

Day II. Afternoon

Presentation of the following approach and photographic action, around double images.

Fourth Intervention. Double Exposure with integral film. We will prepare the base, structure and masks with film to achieve double exposures through the use of the camera.

Fifth intervention: Plastic collage. Based on the results obtained, we will make interventions with the available materials, incorporating other materials that reinforce or enrich the explored photographic language.

Sixth Intervention and closing: We will reflect on what was produced in order to create a monstrous mural among all.

Participants must bring:

- Camera with integral film (sx-70, 1000. E-type...), preferably in black and white.

- Between 3 and 5 polaroid photographs taken no more than 10 days in advance, color or black and white

- 5 discard photographs (errors, out of focus...) color or black and white.

- An empty film cassette and black cover.
