One-Day Visiting Artist Workshop with Thomas Allen

Dates: Sat Oct 21, 17

Time: 10:00am - 5:00pm

Making Pictures II / Photo Workshop (815)
Visiting Artist Thomas Allen, Print Studio

We have invited Thomas back! We'll dig into a mountain of pages torn from old, discarded books to unearth interesting characters and objects, paying close attention to how they might interact with one another. NO experience is required for this fun workshop.

This is a time-consuming process, so we will spend most of the day cutting. Thomas will show you the art of staging straight photographs with tape, glue, pins and wire--and nothing else! From there, it's just a matter of fussing with the arrangement until you are ready to capture your brilliantly-crafted tableau with the device of your choosing, be it a camera, phone or tablet. All materials provided, please bring lunch. The Jim and Lois Richmond Workshop Fund subsidizes all of our visiting artist workshop. To see Thomas' work go to,
