The Dry Image Transfer process is a method to transfer an image onto substrate to integrate with colored pencils or another medium. Imagine the possibilities! 
For those attending the hybrid meeting in person, sheets of pre-mounted wax paper, watercolor paper, and a printer will be provided. Instructions will be emailed for ZOOM participants to prepare the pre-mounted wax paper at home.

CPSA DC 201-Portland Chapter is seeking mixed media CP artist members to lead 2024 chapter events using mixed media with colored pencil. You can partner up with a buddy; present from the comfort of your art chair via ZOOM; ask members to raid their art supplies for a group share; or ask a child what they did in art class recently and to be your presentation buddy.    Contact Lori if you have some ideas!

Mixed media is our chapter's focus for 2024 to support our 
first Explore This! digital exhibition. Which brings me to...

“It was such a FUN workshop!!!! This was such a great change of pace for me.  Sue Horwath

“This was fun! I tried not to think, but just did it.” – Pat Averill

Thanks, Karen. It was actually just some nice creative play for a little while on Saturday. I’m usually so focused on creating something specific with my art that I never let myself have just purely escape time. So it was a great experience. 
We could almost charge for this! Thanks again!  —Rhonda Dicksion
