Wednesdays, March 8, 15, 22, and 29, 2017, 6pm-9pm
$10 per class, all materials included

Join us every Wednesday in March as we explore Linocuts! Linocut is a printmaking technique in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. Using a subtractive cutting method, you will learn how to take away the parts of linoleum where you want to leave the white of the page, and keep the parts you want to be inked! The result will be an image that you can reproduce over and over again. No prior experience needed. All materials are provided. Please register at (813) 932-0241 or info@lectampa.org

 

Free Art Talk! Pebeo Fantasy Paints Demo with Patricia Beebe

These oil-based paints can be combined with other products such as acrylics, Pebeo Vitrail, or Pebeo Cerne Relief (used as a barrier for the Fantasy paints). The paints can be used on a variety of surfaces including: wood, canvas, and yupo. Art Talks are free and open to the public. Brown bag lunches are always welcome. Please register at (813) 932-0241 or info@lectampa.org

Understanding Your Camera Workshop with David Beebe
Wednesday, March 15, 2017, 1:30pm-3:30pm

Modern cameras are amazing, and most of the time they will give you excellent results even in full automatic mode. If you’ve ever wondered what all those other options are or how best to setup your camera to maximize your results, this workshop is for you. We will review the basics options and settings found on most cameras and then address specific questions about your individual camera as best as we can. So bring your camera and owner’s manual (just in case) along with a sense of adventure. Please register at (813) 932-0241 or info@lectampa.org
