"In this one-day (approx. 6 hours) workshop you have the option to make a 16x20, 18x18 or three 6x6 pieces with your own photograph(s). Together we will print your photo to the correct dimensions, cut and mount onto a 1.5-inch thick natural wood canvas. You can choose to leave your canvas the beautiful natural wood or paint it white or black depending on what type of border you’d like surrounding your work of art. We will then mix the resin application, pour, and spread onto the photo. We will finish by torching your pieces to eliminate any bubbles. Your work will be ready to pick up in 24hours when the resin has hardened. You will walk away with the knowledge on how to create a resin coated photo and your elegant work of art. All materials are included, just come with your edited photograph(s) ready for printing.
"Inspired by Austin Kleon’s book, ‘Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative’. Kleon writes that nothing is original and all artists’ steal...“The wonderful flaw about human beings is that we’re incapable of making perfect copies. Our failure to copy our heroes is where we discover where our own thing lives. That is how we evolve.” (Note: Kleon has not endorsed this class.) As students of photography, in this class we try to imitate the photographers at the top of our field, past and present, to give us tools to go forth and find our own voices in this art with the knowledge we retain from their style and wisdom. (Check out ‘The Photographer’s Playbook’ for a wonderful collection of current photographers working now) The group decides the group’s structure and the direction of exploration. Each month’s presentation will use electronic means; no printing is required. Members will be encouraged to study the selected artists, actively participate in both researching and discussing the selected artists style and artistic philosophy and present their individual interpretation of the selected artist’s methods incorporated into their own style. This is an opportunity to continue photographic development in both technical ability and artistic content.
