In this comprehensive course, students explored creating a body for work from image capture to concept critique, technical feedback, and software editing. For those interested, students learned the basics of digital printing techniques, or strengthened their level of printing skills.

Durward Rogers co-taught with Barbara to take the images from initial concept to final exhibition  with Harland Campbell in the CDS print lab.

FRANK Gallery Presents

Encaustic Photography Workshop, Creating a Fine Art Heirloom Legacy Print


2 Day Workshop

Saturday June 9, 10


FRANK Gallery



Get motivated to organize those old family photos from the garage and storage boxes, miscellaneous albums, and deteriorating plastic sheets! Get motivated to explore, preserve, distribute, and display your digital file collections and choose those special images for future printing, framing, or constructing additional safe back up storage.

In this 2 part introductory series, students will have the opportunity to share and discuss selected family photographs from their personal family photo archives. We will discuss which ones are meaningful, salvageable, and what they represent for your legacy to future generations. We will provide additional resources for storage and preservation.

Barbara will produce a scanned and “cleaned up” print from your collection. Mary will then teach you how to apply encaustic wax materials to the image to produce a fine art print suitable for framing.



 Photo Retreats and Group Seminars


Learn to see through an artist's perspective using the camera as a tool to create meaningful imagery.


What you will learn

Before and after the photographic sessions, we will engage in stimulating conversations and critique. Using ambient light as well as artificial light modifiers, we will experiment with extended camera controls, stretching exposure time with slow shutter speeds, zooming in for selective focus through shallow perception, or broadening your vision through extended depth of field to increase the visual impact of your work and elevate your photographs to a deeper level of meaning.
