This past weekend, current Art Education doctoral student Cindy Jesup led a group of students for an art-making workshop. Entitled “Image Manipulation and Transfer Workshop,” Jesup taught several methods involving collage images and drawing techniques such as Never Dull, Mylar Mono Prints, and Tape Transfers.
When asked where Jesup had learned of the techniques she taught within the workshop, she explained: “I’ve collected these techniques from workshops and other art teachers. They are inexpensive, portable, and produce interesting images.”
The participants at the workshop were excited about several of the methods Cindy showed them, and were quick to try them with the materials they were asked to bring.
“I really enjoyed sharing my knowledge of image manipulation and transfers with the people who attended the workshop on Saturday. It’s always nice to work with fellow artists.”
“I want to thank Cindy and the dept for allowing us to have this learning opportunity for free. I’m anxious to put these tools to use with my personal mail art project.”

“The students were interested in partaking in more workshops and asked when the next one would take place. I am looking at scheduling a printing workshop near the beginning of the Summer session.”
We look forward to experiencing more of Cindy’s workshops and learning about her other exciting techniques.
