Too often I try to organize the world into tidy categorizes. For example, my brain has always kept concepts like art and science separated into neat little boxes- as if the two exist entirely independently from one another. Of course, I recognize that this is completely silly. I mean, hello, architecture! Digital art! Even baking combines chemistry with cake decorating! Now CLP Main- Teen is hosting a new monthly program which seeks to break down barriers – real or imagined – between the two: Outside the Lines. The idea is to create and execute dynamic projects that marry the arts with STEM.
This Saturday 4/20 at 3 pm at CLP Main- Teen, we’ll be creating art using a digital image transfer technique with help from the Labs @ CLP by printing digitally manipulated images onto transparency paper and transferring them onto watercolor paper for a really cool effect. Feel free to bring your own digital art or photo, or find and manipulate a digital image using our technology and software! If you can’t make it, check out the video below showing a step by step process similar to the one we will be using and be sure to join us next month!
