“SAVE this painting!  FRAME this painting“! Workshop will be presented by Gail Beem and Karen Ferrick in two sessions. Participants can enroll for just the A.M. session ($15 members $20 non-members) , just the P.M. session ($15 members $20 non members), or both, ($30 members $40 non members).

A.M. session: 9:00-12:00 -”SAVE this painting!”

Have you ever gotten stuck, something is just not working and you are not sure what to do, or wondering if or when your painting is finished?

Students will bring one painting for critique, like we have done at our annual meetings, and everyone will benefit from Gail's and Karen’s individual critique of each person’s work, then students will make the adjustments right there in class under their guidance!

*Note*Students can also opt to stay all day and continue working on their painting,  but will need to pay for both sessions.

12:00 - 1:00 lunch break

P.M. session: 1:00-3:30 - “FRAME this painting!”

Now that you have a great painting, what is the proper way to frame it yourself so that the presentation is professional and archival?  Gail and Karen will answer the question “What is the rabbit on a frame, and what should I know about it?” They will demonstrate techniques for mounting a painting to a backing board with grafix film and with linen tape and measure and cut a mat. They will explain and show samples of glass, glass cleaning and proper handling, demonstrate how to apply spacers, turn buttons and offset clips and proper finishing techniques with protected backing and hanging hardware. Resources including local, catalogs and online will be explored.   

*Note* that this session is a presentation/demonstration only.  Students will not actually frame a painting at the workshop but will be invited for some hands-on experience with the tools.
