    Students lean illustration techniques during intersession

    During a wintersession illustration class at the University of Mississippi Wednesday, students watched as acting assistant art professor Katherine Rhodes Fields demonstrated how to transfer images using a variety of techniques.

    Dabbing wintergreen or clove oil on the back of a printed image and using a large wooden spoon, the students watched as Fields transferred a sketch, newspaper photograph and magazine pictures onto a plain piece of paper.

    The technique is often used to create collages, Fields said, or to allow artists to take an image from their sketch pad and transfer it to another media. (January 7, 2011, Page 1B)
