ONSITE: Build + Paint Your Own Canvas (Ages 12-14)

Learn how to build a wooden frame then stretch a canvas to paint on! We will be learning the proper techniques for using tools in the woodshop to build the frame. Then we will go over how to stretch canvas fabric on their frames and prime the surface. From there, students will have their own handmade canvas to paint an object, landscape, self portrait, or anything else they are inspired to!
