Degraded Imagery/Art Technique for the Handicapped.
Agard, Richard
Developed for handicapped artists, Degraded Imagery is a technique whereby images can be extracted and refined from a photograph or a collage of photographs. The advantage of this process is that it requires a lower degree of fine motor skills to produce a quality image from a photograph than it does to create a quality image on a blank piece of paper. The primary steps are: elimination of excess detail, control of resolution, addition of texture, and addition of color. A partial list of materials that can be used are salt, glue, makeup, water color, chalk, shellac, bath crystals, furniture polish, talcum powder, steel wool, and thermofax transparencies. (SB)
