Do you want to learn how to mat and frame your own artwork? Jurors for Art League exhibits tell us how important presentation is when they consider what pieces to select. With two workshops coming up this weekend, artists and collectors alike can learn how to present artwork acceptable for submission at The Art League and other galleries, how to care for their collection, and the steps involved in completing their own framing project.
On Friday, June 22, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Eileen Yeager will teach Wood Frame Cutting and Joining. Students will learn to cut, miter, join, assemble, paint, and embellish a wood frame, leaving with one 11″ x 14″ frame. The workshop is $95, plus a $20 materials fee payable to the instructor to cover the supplies and use of tools. For more information and to register, click here.
And on Saturday and Sunday, June 23–24, Eileen and Ron Yeager will teach their Basic Matting and Framing workshop, which covers all the steps to complete one 8″ x 10″ framing project. The two-day workshop covers design and preservation techniques, tools, basic and custom mats, hands-on mat cutting, mounting, and pre-cut frame assembly. The workshop is $175, plus a $20 materials fee to cover the cost of tools and supplies, including a mat board, mounting board, and mounting kit. Students bring an 8″ x 10″ frame and artwork.
