ONSITE: Build + Stretch Your Own Canvas in the Woodshop
Break free from the restrictions of canvas sizes you buy at the store and learn to make your own! We'll learn how to use the tools needed to build a wooden canvas frame. Once the frame is built, we will go over the proper techniques for stretching a tight canvas. At the end of the class session you will be able to make a canvas size to fit any project!
- Students should wear closed toe shoes in the woodshop and students with long hair should bring something to tie it back with.
This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website: visarts.org
